Report: Raiders, Incognito have 'mutual interest,' but waiting
The Oakland Raiders and free agent guard Richie Incognito have "strong mutual interest" but are waiting to see if the NFL disciplines Incognito for his arrest last summer, ESPN reported Tuesday.
Per ESPN, Incognito's visit to the team is complete, and he's returning to Arizona to work out while awaiting word on possible punishment under the league's personal conduct policy.
Incognito was arrested in August during an incident at an Arizona funeral home following his father's death. He pleaded guilty last month to disorderly conduct and was sentenced to 11 months of probation and a 90-day suspended jail sentence.
The 35-year-old last played for the Buffalo Bills in 2017. He announced his retirement in April 2018 due to health reasons.
"My liver and kidneys are shutting down," Incognito told the Buffalo News at that time. "The stress is killing me. It's just about doing what's right. I just want to be in the Hall of Fame."
A four-time Pro Bowl selection, Incognito has started 150 career games with the St. Louis Rams, Miami Dolphins and Bills. He was suspended by the Dolphins in 2013 after being accused of bullying teammate Jonathan Martin, and he sat out the 2014 season.
Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said earlier this week the starting job at left guard is "wide open." Previous starter Kelechi Osemele was traded to the New York Jets this spring.
