Richie Incognito confirms he is retiring: ‘The stress is killing me’

Richie Incognito

Richie Incognito fueled speculation on Tuesday morning that he is considering retirement, and it would appear he has officially made up his mind.

Not long after he told The MMQB’s Peter King he may hang up the cleats and sent a cryptic tweet to the NFL Players Association, Incognito spoke about his health issues while confirming to Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News that he is, indeed, retiring.

About an hour before that, Incognito left open the possibility that he could return in 2018 for the right price. He took a pay cut with the Bills last month in which he cut his base salary nearly in half and received a new $1 million signing bonus. Incognito told Carucci that having to take a pay cut angered him, but it has nothing to do with his decision to retire.

Incognito has had a somewhat strange offseason, as he also appeared to fire his agents over Twitter last week.
