Richie Incognito is one of the bigger supporters of Rex Ryan as a head coach. He loves playing for the guy. Explaining how enjoyable the game is playing under Ryan to Reggie Bush last month may have helped to convince the veteran running back to sign with the Bills.
Incognito ran into Bush in Las Vegas this offseason. The two were former teammates in Miami where Incognito and his Dolphins teammates helped Bush rack up the first 1,000-yard rushing season of his career in 2011. The subject quickly turned to Buffalo where Incognito got a second chance to revive his career.
“I did a little scouting on my own,” Incognito said. “I ran into Reggie in Las Vegas in the summer and he was asking me what Rex was all about and I told him how I really love playing for him and love being around him. So I’m really excited to have him here.”
When asked if he deserves a finder’s fee for landing the veteran running back, Incognito just laughed.
“No. The finder’s fee is Reggie (Bush) scoring touchdowns on Sunday.” said Incognito. “He’s a dynamic player and I really think it’s a great fit for him. With our backfield there are kind of a lot of question marks in there. We have Shady (LeSean McCoy) he’s the established, number one guy. I think Reggie as a dynamic playmaker who can come in and G-Ro (Greg Roman) can really scheme up some situations to get him in some open space. I love it man.”
