Bills to sign Incognito, key figure in bullying scandal

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills have agreed in principle to sign Richie Incognito, the offensive guard who has been out of football since 2013 after being one of the central figures in the Miami Dolphins’ bullying scandal.

The Bills announced the move in a two-paragraph release Saturday night.

Incognito has nine seasons of NFL experience, and briefly played for the Bills in 2009. He has not played since being suspended and missing the final eight games of the 2013 season.

The discipline came after an NFL investigation determined Incognito and two other Dolphins offensive linemen engaged in persistent harassment of teammate Jonathan Martin, who left the team. Martin spent last season with San Francisco.
