One could argue that Richie Incognito has had to re-make himself twice after an over aggressive style put him on the outs in St. Louis where he started his NFL career. But now a few years removed from the bullying scandal in Miami, there’s no place Incognito would rather be than Buffalo.
In an in depth interview with SI.com’s Don Banks, Incognito talked at length about his new lease on life. Here’s an excerpt.
“Going through all that and coming out on the other end, after learning a lot about myself and owning up to my actions, it made me a better person and a better teammate,” Incognito says. “I know this, this is the most solid, most stable ground I’ve been on in my entire life. That’s in life. It’s been a long process of just being comfortable in my own skin again.”
Wherever his teammates are gathered, you can usually find Incognito in the middle of the group. Even his daily ping-pong battles in the locker room are now moments he cherishes.
“I’m like, this is awesome,” Incognito says, catching himself amid a recent game. “This is it. This is what I missed big time. I missed being around the guys. I’m a guy’s guy. I love hearing all the crazy stories, and telling my stories. That’s the fun part, and I’m going to just relish it all.”
