According to ESPN via a report from Buffalo News, Bills head coach Rex Ryan is interested in building a tough team and wants talented offensive linemen – hence his desire to bring in the controversial Incognito.
NFL.com insider Jeff Darlington reported that Incognito met with members of the Bills brass during Super Bowl XLIX.
Bills have wanted Richie Incognito for quite a while. Good for them. Spent time with him at Super Bowl. He’s in a very good place right now.

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.
At Rex Ryan’s introductory press conference with the Bills back in January, Ryan specifically stated he was going to “build a bully.” Apparently the bombastic head coach needs some professional advice on how to do so.
