Richie Incognito fires agent over Twitter
Richie Incognito apparently feels that he is not getting proper representation, so the veteran offensive lineman has decided to fire his agent.
Incognito sent a tweet to Athletes First on Thursday morning informing the sports agency that they have been relieved of their duties. While Incognito thanked the agency for helping him, his “you are fired!” was reminiscent of Donald Trump.
@AthletesFirst You are Fired! I wish you guys nothing but the best moving forward. Thank you for all of your help and guidance along the way. It’s time for me to go in a new direction ✌????

Incognito did not say exactly what happened that prompted the seemingly harsh dismissal.
As we know from his involvement in the Jonathan Martin scandal, Incognito can be a little rough around the edges. While firing an agent over Twitter isn’t all that common, we’re not surprised Incognito was the one to do it.
