Richie Incognito interested in Oakland Raiders

Just a day after saying that he would like to return to the Dolphins, Richie Incognito told NFL Network’s Michael Silver today that he’s “100 percent” into playing for the Raiders. Incognito cited that the Raiders are the team that would fit his personality best, per Jerry McDonald of Inside Bay Area. 

Oakland would provide some familiarly for Incognito. He played under offensive coordinator Greg Olsen in his time with the Rams, and his former head coach in Miami, Tony Sporano, is now the O-line coach for the Raiders.

Incognito saying that the Raiders fit his personality is not necessarily a good thing here. In Miami, he was the ringleader of what was clearly bad football culture, and the Raiders haven’t exactly been known as a particularly classy or well-run franchise in recent years.

After getting off to a disastrous start in free agency with Rodger Saffold, the Raiders have made recent moves to improve their O-line with the signings of Kevin Boothe and Donald Penn. Due to Incognito’s tarnished NFL reputation, the Raiders would likely take criticism should they sign him, but at a bargain, it’s not a terrible deal for G.M. Reggie McKenzie, as he’s a proven and capable NFL lineman.

However, this is more than likely just Incognito talking to make news at this point. With zero credibility right now, it’s hard to envision him in a uniform for any NFL team in 2014.

      Yes sir….. If Jonathan Martin wasn’t such a whiny little crybaby this wouldn’t even be an issue. Football is a sport for gladiators, not boys who get a little butt hurt from crap talking. 49ers can have Jonathan Martin we want Richie incognito. Hell to the yes we want him.

    Incog wants to play for the Raiders so he can be across the bay from bullying Jonathan Martin.
