Report: Raiders re-sign 4-time Pro Bowl G Richie Incognito

Over a week after being released from the team as a salary-cap casualty, the Las Vegas Raiders plan to re-sign four-time Pro Bowl guard Richie Incognito, NFL Network reported Wednesday.

Per the report, the Raiders will sign him to a one-year contract worth up to $2.62 million, including $1.1 million in guaranteed money. The move ended up saving the Raiders nearly $3 million in cap room in 2021.

Incognito played in only two games in 2020 before he was placed on injured reserve in September with a season-ending Achilles injury. Per a separate report last week, the 37-year-old Incognito has completely recovered and hopes to play next season.

After sitting out the 2018 season, Incognito signed a two-year deal with the Raiders in 2019 and started 12 games that season. He missed the first two games of the campaign while serving an NFL-mandated suspension for violating the league’s personal-conduct policy.

Incognito, whose past includes a well-documented bullying incident with former Miami Dolphins teammate Jonathan Martin, has 13 seasons of NFL experience. He also did not play during the 2014 season.

A third-round draft pick in 2005 by the then-St. Louis Rams, the 6-foot-4 guard has played in 164 games (all starts) with the Rams (2006-09), Buffalo Bills (2009, 2015-17), Dolphins (2010-13) and Raiders (2019 in Oakland, 2020 in Las Vegas).

Earlier Wednesday it was three-time Pro Bowl center Rodney Hudson who was a cap victim, with the Raiders dealing him to Arizona for a third-round pick. The team also re-signed tackle Denzelle Good on a two-year, $8.36 million deal, per NFL Network.

The Raiders have spent most of free agency attempting to upgrade their defense, which allowed 29.9 points per game in 2020 (third-most in the NFL). They reeled in DT Quinton Jefferson on Wednesday and before that added several other free agents on the defensive line — including Yannick Ngakoue (two years, $26 million), Johnathan Hankins (one year, $3.5 million) and Solomon Thomas (one year, up to $5 million). They also re-signed linebacker Nicholas Morrow on a reported one-year, $5 million deal.

Raiders put G Incognito (Achilles) on injured list

The Las Vegas Raiders placed guard Richie Incognito on injured reserve Wednesday as he continues to be bothered by an Achilles injury.

Incognito, 37, was limited in practice last Friday and Saturday. He left the Raiders’ 34-24 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Monday night in the second quarter because of the ailment.

A four-time Pro Bowl selection, Incognito is in his second season with the Raiders and 14th overall in the NFL. He’s played in 164 games — all starts.

He is expected to return this season and will be eligible to play Oct. 25 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Raiders elevated guard Patrick Omameh, 30, from the practice squad to fill Incognito’s roster spot.

The 6-foot-4 guard has played in 81 games (57 starts) with the Buccaneers (2013-14), Chicago Bears (2015), Jacksonville Jaguars (2016-18), New York Giants (2018) and Saints (2019).
