    BUFFALO, N.Y. - Controversial offensive lineman Richie Incognito joined the Buffalo Bills on Thursday after being cut by the St. Louis Rams on Monday.

    Incognito was on the practice field with the Bills and could even see playing time on Sunday against the Patriots.

    Incognito was cut by St. Louis after committing two personal foul penalties for head butting in the Rams 47-7 loss to the Titans last week. He also got into a verbal confrontation with Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo.

    Incognito was voted as the dirtiest player in the NFL according to a poll of players done earlier this season by The Sporting News.

    Bills linebacker Kawika Mitchell did not like the signing, saying on his Twitter account, "Biggest disappointment this year. The guy is a bum. Dirty and Always will be." Mitchell did apologize for the comment on Twitter and to Bills coach Perry Fewell.

    After practice, Two On Your Side's Ben Hayes asked Incognito about his reputation in the league.

    Hayes: "Your reputation, voted the dirtiest player in the league, how do you view your rep?"

    Incognito: "I guess it's a little spotty right now with the dirtiest player in the league, I think they polled 90 guys and nine guys answered that I'm the dirtiest player in the league so now everybody runs with it that I'm the dirtiest player in the league, so you call me what you want I'm a hard nose football player and I'm going to bring my A game every Sunday.''

    Hayes: "Any reaction to the comments by Kawika mitchell? did you see them, did he say anything to you?"

    Incognito: "I did see them, I haven't spoken to Kawika yet, just like you said I have a reputation around the league for being a less than model citizen and some guys on teams really dislike playing against me and I can see where Kawika is coming from, I've probably done some cheap stuff to him playing in the past but now, we're a team now, we're members of the same team and we're working toward the same goal and that's getting this club as many wins as possible.''
    A defeated look of consternation, dissappointment, or even pain. The name derives from the look one often gets when challenged by a large BM.

    Yannick Ngakoue accuses Bills' Richie Incognito of using racial slurs

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Defensive end Yannick Ngakoue accused Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Richie Incognito of using racial slurs during the Jaguars' 10-3 playoff victory Sunday.

    Ngakoue said on Twitter that a Bills player wearing No. 64 was "goin[g] to come harder than some weak racist slurs."

    Ngakoue ended his tweet with the hashtag #Iaintjonathanmartin!



    Ngakoue could not be reached for comment. The Bills and Incognito's agent, David Dunn, did not immediately respond to a request for comment Sunday evening.

    The NFL said it is "looking into" the accusations levied against Incognito.

    Bills lineman Dion Dawkins tweeted in support of Incognito.



    Incognito, 34, has made the Pro Bowl each of his three seasons since signing with the Bills in 2015. Buffalo gave Incognito a second chance in the NFL after the Miami Dolphins suspended him for the final eight games of the 2013 season for his role in a bullying scandal in which ex-offensive lineman Jonathan Martin was a target.

    NFL investigator Ted Wells released a report in 2014 detailing "a pattern of harassment" against Martin by Incognito and other Dolphins players that included racial slurs. Incognito's attorney later called the report "replete with errors."

    The NFL cleared Incognito later in 2014 to return to football, but he spent that season out of the league before joining Buffalo the next year.

    Rams' Richie Incognito: "I'm a marked man"

    As popular as Richie Incognito is in the Rams' locker room, where he's venerated as a staunch defender of his teammates, he's equally ostracized around the NFL, where he's regarded by some of his adversaries as an unscrupulous hothead.

    After Incognito was whistled for four penalties, including two personal fouls, in a 2007 game against Arizona, Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett said the NFL "is going to have to do something about (Incognito), because one day he's going to really injure somebody's career. The guy was trying to hurt some of our guys."

    Last year, Seattle linebacker Leroy Hill noted that there are "just a few in the league who take cheap shots, go low at you when they're not supposed to go low, like when you're not looking. He's one of them."

    As a result:

    Opponents do what they can to get under Incognito's skin, trying to elicit a reaction.

    "One of the fundamentals of the game is trying to exploit someone else's weaknesses," said CBS analyst Dan Dierdorf, a Hall of Fame offensive lineman with the old St. Louis Cardinals. "You realize where another guy is flawed and how to take advantage of that."

    Officials constantly keep a close eye on Incognito for any indiscretion.

    "I know when I'm going out there Sundays I'm being watched," said the 6-foot-3, 324-pound Incognito, the Rams' right guard. "I'm a marked man."

    Incognito, 26, said in the spring that he dedicated the offseason to trying to scrape away that reputation. "Just growing, being a more mature football player and eliminating the penalties," he said. "That's really the emphasis for me."

    Yet Incognito already has re-ignited the furor by drawing two personal-foul calls in the Rams' 28-0 season-opening loss at Seattle.

    Angry fans on sports-talk shows and Internet forums have called for his release, arguing that enough is enough. But first-year head coach Steve Spagnuolo is standing up for his man.

    "I trust Richie I like his passion," Spagnuolo said. "When the passion leads to penalties, that's not a good thing. But I'd rather have that problem than trying to motivate the guys to love the game of football."


    'I PLAY WITH PASSION'

    No one questions Incognito's love for football. "I care a lot about the game," he said. "I play with passion. I play with fire. And I play to win."

    He's been doing so since he was a youngster in Glendale, Ariz. At Mountain Ridge High he developed into one of the nation's most sought-after linemen.

    He chose Nebraska and quickly earned a first-team...

    Rams Notebook: Incognito plagued with penalties

    SEATTLE In terms of the Rams' woeful recent past, coach Steve Spagnuolo has wiped the slate clean. For Richie Incognito, it's a good thing that's the case.

    That's because Incognito was flagged for 35 yards worth of penalties Sunday in Seattle, two of which were personal fouls for unnecessary roughness that killed Rams drives. After the second personal foul, Incognito was replaced by Adam Goldberg with 10 minutes to play in the third quarter.

    But Goldberg was in for only the rest of that possession two plays and a three-and-out series on the next, before Incognito returned and finished out the game.

    "I told (Incognito), I still have confidence in him," Spagnuolo said. "I don't lose confidence in a guy in one game. I think Richie's one of our passionate guys, I really do. He plays his butt off. It's just sometimes, you've got to temper that a little bit, that's all."

    Incognito said he appreciated the support from the head coach.

    "It does mean a lot to me," Incognito said. "I don't want to disappoint him. I've got the team riding on my shoulders on this one they need me to stop committing fouls. It's something I've worked very hard at. And you come out here and it's first-game jitters. And you let one pop off."

    (Actually two, in terms of personal foul penalties.)

    "I'm going to keep working hard at trying to step my mental game up," Incognito said. "My physical game is there. I had a hell of a game. I played very well. But it's very disappointing to have it overshadowed by stupid mistakes."

    Incognito has a history of personal fouls, and more than one opposing player over the years has referred to him as a dirty player. Make no mistake, NFL officiating crews are aware of his reputation as well.

    "I know going out there on Sundays I'm being watched," Incognito said. "I know I'm a marked man. My reputation precedes me."

    Tyree to visit The Rams had only four wide receivers available for Sunday's season opener, but that could change in a hurry. League sources told the Post-Dispatch that former New York Giants wide receiver David Tyree is scheduled to visit the Rams today and take a physical.

    Baltimore and Jacksonville also are showing interest in Tyree, who was one of the Super Bowl heroes for New York two seasons ago with his "Helmet Catch" on the game-winning touchdown drive. Tyree also has a reputation as an excellent special teams player.

    Hall starts James Hall started at right defensive end instead of Chris Long, but Hall, Long and Leonard Little basically rotated at the two end positions.

    Dockett calls out Incognito
    by RamWraith
    This came from another forum:



    Arizona defensive tackle Darnell Dockett leveled some salvos at Rams center Richie Incognito in the visitors' locker room. "We played against a center that didn't play by any rules whatsoever," Dockett said. "He's out there trying to hurt some of our guys. Karma will deal with him. Trust me, I know all about it. We played well even though we had to play against an (expletive) who tried to hurt some players on our team." Incognito was flagged for unnecessary roughness, a 15-yard penalty, in the third quarter.
