Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Richie Incognito is planning to retire, according to a report from The Buffalo News’ Vic Carucci.
It’s interesting, yet sudden, change of tune for Incognito who previously stated that he would be enticed to play another season with a pay raise.
“It pisses me the [expletive] off” incognito said.
“The contract and all that pissed me [off] and all that, but (retiring) has nothing to do with that,” Incognito said.
Incognito told Carucci that his liver and kidneys are “shutting down,” so his best option might be to walk away from football.
“It’s been a long career. Went to the doctor. My liver and kidneys are shutting down. The stress is killing me. It’s just about doing what’s right. I just want to be in the Hall of Fame.”
Bills’ running back LeSean McCoy is trying to entice Incognito to change his mind about retirement.
McCoy took to Instagram to make his pleas, offering Incognito a $300K check if Incognito stays with the team and helps him reach 1,500 yards, which likely violates league rules.
