Bills guard Richie Incognito says he's 'done' amid retirement reports

Reportedly, Incognito told Bills reporter Vic Carucci, "I'm, done".

BUFFALO, N.Y. Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Richie Incognito said he's "done" in a text to the Associated Press amid reports he is considering retirement after 11 National Football League seasons.

While there hasn't been an official story or an announcement from the Bills, it makes you wonder what's going on.

Of his anger over his pay cut, Incognito told the News on Tuesday, "There's more to that story, there's many layers, but I don't want to get into that right now".

We look forward to hearing what comes next.

Since the offseason began, Incognito fired his agent via Twitter and agreed to a pay cut with a base salary of $3.65 million.

Incognito explained to the Buffalo News that his health issues are connected to his diet, which was aimed at maintaining his size and strength. "Wood and you ... listen 1500 yards I'll give u 300k favorite WHITE BOY EVER CANT retire lol... love u dog".

Bills' running back LeSean McCoy is trying to entice Incognito to change his mind about retirement.

Incognito also sent a tweet to the NFLPA saying he's done. That's it. It's been a long career. "That's it." Incognito added he is experiencing liver and kidney problems and is being affected by stress. The stress is killing me.

Incognito was suspended for the final eight games of the 2013 season, when the Dolphins were thrust into the national spotlight after offensive lineman Jonathan Martin abruptly quit the team amid accusations he was being bullied. Before the investigation was over, the Dolphins made a decision to released Incognito during the 2013 season. According to the NFL's report, assembled by lawyer Ted Wells, Incognito and fellow lineman John Jerry and Mike Pouncey used racial slurs to bully Martin, another teammate, and several staff members.

The 34-year-old has started all 16 games in each of the last three seasons for the Bills.
