Bills re-signed LG Richie Incognito to a three-year, $15.75 million contract.
The two sides appeared to be drifting apart at this time last week when it was reported the Bills were "frustrated" Incognito wouldn't take a "cut-rate deal" and give the team a discount. But it got done a day before the market opened, and Incognito will be back between franchise player LT Cordy Glenn and C Eric Wood after making the Pro Bowl this past season following his year away.

WKBW’s Joe Buscaglia believes the Bills are at risk of losing free agent LG Richie Incognito.

The Bills are reportedly frustrated with Incognito talks after taking a chance on him last year. He’s not expected to accept a team-friendly deal, making his return difficult for the cap-strapped Bills. If Incognito doesn’t re-sign, Buffalo could have to replace him through the draft.

Pro Football Talk reports the Bills are 'frustrated' impending free agent LG Richie Incognito will not accept a cut-rate deal.

The Bills gave Incognito a chance last season, and he repaid them with an outstanding season. Now headed to free agency, the Bills apparently believe Incognito should give them a hometown discount. Likely signing his last big contract at age 32, Incognito understandably disagrees. It seemed like a foregone conclusion Incognito would return to Buffalo, but it now appears there is a real chance he hits the open market.

WGR 550's Sal Capaccio expects the Bills and impending free agent LG Richie Incognito to agree to a two-year contract.

Both the Bills and Incognito have expressed a desire to continue their relationship after Incognito made the Pro Bowl and was Pro Football Focus' No. 2 guard. Incognito turns 33 in July. Capaccio guesses he'll command around $6 million per year on a new contract, which falls in line with what fellow veteran Chiefs LG Ben Grubbs received in a revised contract last year.

Impending free agent LG Richie Incognito said he wants to return to Buffalo.

"My goal is to come back and play in Buffalo," Incognito said. "I love it there. I love my teammates and I love playing for coach Rex [Ryan] and [OC] Greg Roman." Bills GM Doug Whaley has said re-signing Incognito is "imperative." Buffalo has some cap concerns, but it would be a surprise if Incognito is not back with the team next season.

Bills GM Doug Whaley said re-signing impending free agent LG Richie Incognito is "imperative."

Incognito received deserved Comeback Player of the Year buzz for his performance this season and was a driving force behind the Bills' top-ranked rushing attack. Buffalo has cap concerns and also needs to re-sign LT Cordy Glenn, but the 32-year-old guard should not break the bank. It would be a surprise if Incognito does not return to Buffalo.

Bills.com’s Chris Brown expects impending free agent LG Richie Incognito to settle for a two-year extension.

Incognito finished behind only Ravens RG Marshal Yanda in PFF’s ratings. He’s fully expected to remain in Buffalo after the Bills took a chance on him this past season. 32-year-old Incognito is worth $3M-plus annually, but might accept a team-friendly deal.
Jan 8 - 7:39 PM

Bills GM Doug Whaley believes LG Richie Incognito is playing the best football of his career.

"He’s had better guard play this year than I’ve seen scouting him for the last five or six years," Whaley said. "He’s impressed all of us, and I would say . . . he should be a candidate for Comeback Player of the Year. He has to be mentioned as a top five guard in the league." Incognito is unlikely to win CPOY over Carson Palmer, but he should be in the discussion after spending a year and a half out of the league following the bullying scandal in Miami. Pro Football Focus currently has Incognito ranked as the best left guard in the league and the second best overall. He has played a big role in the Bills' top-five rushing attack.

Bills LG Richie Incognito (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 11.

Incognito was added to the injury report Friday and limited the last two days. He's been the Bills best offensive lineman this season, grading as a top-three guard at PFF. Kraig Urbik is Incognito's backup.

Rex Ryan said LG Richie Incognito has been better than anticipated.

"I think Richie has kind of exceeded my expectations," Ryan said. "You’d expect him to be physical and all that stuff. I was surprised with his overall fitness." Incognito hasn’t had any conditioning issues coming off his 18-month layoff. The Bills are counting on him to help anchor the left side of their offensive line. Incognito’s addition along with rookie John Miller should improve an interior that was among the worst in the league last year.

Bills coach Rex Ryan has named Richie Incognito the starter at left guard.

Ryan told ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak that he's been "blown away" by Incognito's conditioning this offseason. A year away from football seems to have done Incognito some good. The 32-year-old was a Pro Bowler in 2012 before a bullying scandal sent his career in a downward spiral.

Bills coach Rex Ryan said LG Richie Incognito has been "outstanding" at OTAs.

Making the most of his second chance following the BullyGate scandal, Incognito looks to have the inside track for the starting left guard position. Incognito received PFF's 23rd-highest grade for guards in 2012, his last full season in the NFL. That was out of 81 qualifiers.

Richie Incognito met with Bills owner Terry Pegula and his wife before the team signed him.

He also met with Rex Ryan and GM Doug Whaley. It makes sense for the Bills to be cautious with Incognito given his history. A former Pro Bowler, Incognito's physical style of play could give Buffalo's O-line a huge lift, assuming his temper doesn't get the best of him. The Bills finished middle of the pack in pass protection last season, allowing 39 sacks in 16 games.

Bills signed OG Richie Incognito, formerly of the Dolphins.

It's a one-year deal for $2.25 million, likely with little or no guaranteed money. Out of the league this past season, Incognito hasn't played in over a year after getting suspended in the second half of 2013 for his role in the Dolphins' BullyGate scandal. He was reportedly a "high priority target" for new Bills coach Rex Ryan. With Erik Pears a free agent, Incognito has potential to start in Buffalo. The Bills had one of the worst guard groupings in the league this past season.

The Buffalo News reports free agent G Richie Incognito will sign with the Buffalo Bills.

ESPN reported Incognito would have a physical with the Bills on Saturday, but beat writer Tim Graham reports the physical is just a formality. Incognito had several workouts with guard-needy teams last season, but ended up sitting out all of 2014. He was suspended the second half of 2013 for his role in the Dolphins' Bullygate scandal. With Erik Pears an unrestricted free agent, Incognito has a decent shot to start in Buffalo.
