Former Bills offensive lineman Incognito still hopeful for NFL return

Picture Supplied by Action Images More Former Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Richie Incognito is back home in Phoenix following an alleged altercation at a South Florida gym two weeks ago and is holding out hope for another chance in the NFL.

Incognito expressed his desire to join a new team in a text to The Associated Press on Wednesday. In the message, Incognito thanks the Bills for his three seasons in Buffalo before playfully adding hopefully I will land somewhere so I can come back up there and kick their. Without mentioning the incident at the gym, Incognito also thanked former teammate Eric Wood for his support over the years. Incognito noted that he’s back home in Phoenix training.

Incognito was taken to South County Mental Health Facility for evaluation. Incognito was released from the reserve/retired list by Buffalo several days earlier. According to an ESPN report, Incognito told the team he planned to unretire, leading to his release.

The Warriors won despite a 3-of-16 shooting performance from Stephen Curry, who did come up big down the stretch as the Cavs were trying to salvage their season.

There is a certain way that the Cleveland Browns have to play, and we are going to earn our stripes. The guys that put them on their helmets and get the chance to wear them, it is going to be because they demonstrate the characteristics that we are looking for in Cleveland Browns players, Jackson said Tuesday during OTAs, per ESPN’s Pat McManamon.

That is the way that they are going to play. That is how we are going to conduct ourselves and go out and win football games.

The motivational lever-pull comes soon after Jackson leaped into Lake Erie to fulfill his promise of a water-dunk if last year’s Browns were somehow worse than the 1-15 operation that waded through the 2016 season.

They were. The 2017 squad became the second team in NFL history to finish winless, an inglorious result that led to Jackson getting soaked in a Great Lake and the Browns — in June — operating without their stripes.
