ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills signed guard Richie Incognito on Monday, providing a second chance after his career was derailed by the Miami Dolphins' bullying scandal in 2013.
It will be Incognito's second stint with Buffalo; he started three games with the Bills in 2009.
The 6-foot-3, 319-pound nine-year veteran was a free agent & had been out of football since being suspended & missing the final eight games of 2013. The discipline came after an NFL investigation determined Incognito & two other Dolphins offensive linemen persistently harassed teammate Jonathan Martin, who left the team. Martin spent last season with San Francisco.
p>Bills owner Terry Pegula says he is ''convinced that Richie is prepared to move forward & has & will continue to take the necessary steps to improve himself as a person & a teammate.''
