If you thought that Oakland Raiders finished constructing their roster, think again. Raiders decided to dip their toes into the free agency pool once again and added offensive guard Richie Incognito. The news comes after reports that Incognito worked out with Raiders in early May.

Incognito initially retired in April 2018 after a Pro Bowl season with Buffalo Bills, but changed his mind a month later and unretired. He ended up failing to get the right offer from NFL teams last year and decided to sit out the season before attempting a comeback in 2019.

Richie Incognito started his career as a third-round pick by the Rams in 2005. He spent five years with the Rams, before embarking on stints with the Bills and Miami Dolphins, with whom he earned a Pro Bowl selection in 2012. 

Incognito decided to sit out the 2014 NFL season, before making a comeback in 2015 and signing with the Bills once again. In the following three seasons he made the Pro Bowl each year while establishing himself as a key part of Buffalo’s O-line.

During his time in NFL, Incognito started a total of 150 games and has four fumble recoveries to his name.
