Whaley: Incognito reclaimed his name

Prior to signing with the Buffalo Bills, Richie Incognito was a former Pro Bowl guard who saw his contract terminated by his team (Miami) in the wake of a bullying scandal. Two years later, Incognito successfully reclaimed his status as a Pro Bowl caliber player and proved to be a model teammate and leader in Buffalo’s locker room.

Bills GM Doug Whaley told Buffalobills.com that seeing Incognito headed back to the Pro Bowl speaks volumes about how far the veteran lineman has come.

“That’s a testament to him. He put a lot of work into reclaiming his name, not only on the field but off the field,” said Whaley. “I tip my cap to him and a lot of due goes to him. When we talked to him, not only was he remorseful for what he did, but he had a plan in place to never go down that road again in his life. I’m really impressed with this guy.”

Whaley also said that the front office will get the ball rolling on preliminary discussions about a new contract for Incognito, who becomes an unrestricted free agent in March.
