Bills GM thinks Richie Incognito racial slur allegation is ‘misunderstanding’

Richie Incognito

The NFL is looking into a claim from a Jacksonville Jaguars player that Richie Incognito directed a racial slur at him during Sunday’s game, but Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane seems to believe Incognito is innocent.

On Tuesday, Beane acknowledged that there was some sort of exchange between Incognito and Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue. However, the GM thinks Ngakoue may not have understood what Incognito said to him.

Ngakoue did not reveal what it was specifically that Incognito said, but he claimed the word was “racist.” The Jags DE made reference in a tweet to Incognito’s infamous bullying scandal with former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin.

The NFL is likely trying to figure out if any microphones may have picked up what Incognito said to Ngakoue. Because of some of the allegations against him in the past, Incognito may not get the same benefit of the doubt that other players would be afforded.
