At his introductory press conference n January, newly-hired Bill head coach Rex Ryan told reporters that his plan in Buffalo was to “build a bully.” Apparently, Rex is getting the NFL’s resident expert on the subject, according to NFL Network insider Jeff Darlington:
Done deal. Richie Incognito has officially signed with the Bills, source says.

A 2012 Pro Bowler with the Miami Dolphins, Incognito became the central figure in a scandal back in 2013 involving the bullying of Dolphins OT Jonathan Martin. Incognito’s actions included, but were not limited to, threatening phone messages, insults directed at Martin and Martin’s family, and harassment. For his actions, Incognito was suspended for the final eight games of the 2013 regular season before being released by the Dolphins. The NFL allowed Incognito to return to the NFL in 2014, but no NFL teams signed him.
Incognito fills a glaring need that the Bills have, as they severely struggled on the offensive line last season. Nonetheless, the team still managed to pull off 9 wins – their first winning season since 2004. But head coach Doug Marrone opted out of his contract and former New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan was hired to replace him.
