Richie Incognito agrees to terms on a contract extension


It took until the 11th hour, but the Bills found a way to come to terms with veteran free agent to be Richie Incognito. Buffalo said all offseason that their top priority was to keep the left side of their offensive line intact, and that was accomplished.

The Bills placed the franchise tag on LT Cordy Glenn last Tuesday and completed a new deal with Incognito a week later.

"It was a major point of emphasis this offseason because you love to have those big uglies up there for continuity sake and the longer you can keep them together the better they are going to be," said Bills GM Doug Whaley. "And again Jim Overdorf has done wonders with always having cap space and money available for us to get the most important people done."

Incognito, 32, re-established himself as a Pro Bowl caliber guard in 2015 after an 18-month layoff from the game due to league suspension and lack of interest. Buffalo signed him to a one-year deal last offseason and Incognito flourished in Greg Roman's run-first offensive scheme.

Buffalo led the league in rushing with Incognito an integral part as a pulling guard. Incognito was one of three Bills who attended the Pro Bowl in Hawaii' this winter.
