Incognito, 34, told the Buffalo News on Tuesday that health concerns are forcing him to walk away from the game. May return for one last season, at the right price.

The Buffalo News quoted Incognito as saying, "I'm done".


"I'm done, I'm done, that's it", Incognito told the News.

"It pisses me the [expletive] off" incognito said.


"My liver and kidneys are shutting down", Incognito told Carucci.

Since the offseason began, Incognito fired his agent via Twitter and agreed to a pay cut with a base salary of $3.65 million. The decision came after Incognito accepted a pay cut by restructuring the final year of his contract. Nothing I can't restore with some balance, but the stress is killing me.

The 2005 third-round pick forever will be known as the Bullygate villain, who allegedly harassed Dolphins teammate Jonathan Martin in 2013 until Martin quit the game. "And I said, 'Listen, I'm just doing what I love and that's playing football.' So that's why I'm done". Center Eric Wood announced his retirement shortly after the conclusion of the 2017 season after team doctors discovered an injury in his neck. To get the money, McCoy would have to run for at least 1,500 yards, which McCoy has only managed to do once in his nine National Football League seasons. He was placed on several award watch-lists ahead of the 2004 season, including the Rimington Award Watch List, but never played due to a suspension. McCoy dropped off to a career-worst 4.0 yards per carry last season, but he made it up to fantasy owners with 287 carries, 59 receptions and eight touchdowns.
