Richie Incognito says he knows Bills are his 'last chance'

Buffalo Bills veteran offensive guard Richie Incognito says he realizes this is his last chance after signing a one-year contract.

Incognito was at the center of the Miami Dolphins' bullying scandal.

Incognito's contract is worth $1.1 million and included a $100,000 signing bonus. The deal is worth up to $2.25 million with playing time incentives.

"I told them what I had learned from the whole situation," Incognito wrote in a text to the NFL's official website. "that I needed to respect those around me more and that I needed to realize I may find things funny that other find offensive. This whole learning process was about becoming self-aware. About becoming a better person/teammate/leader.

"We mutually expressed that this would be my last chance and we should look at it as a positive. Take the opportunity to bring attention to a sensitive subject while proving to people that I'm not a racist jerk. We talked about possible ways to turn this situation around and ways we can impact the community. We had a good talk for about an hour. They met separately. They then came back and said they would like me to be part of the organization."
