Richie Incognito said he's done with football.

However, Sports Illustrated's Peter King reports Incognito is speaking with the Bills about his contract.

Incognito's recent pay cut reduced his base salary from $6.3 million to $3.7 million, but he received a $1 million bonus as part of the restructure.

The announcement came after Incognito revealed his intention to retire through a series of tweets and comments made to several publications throughout the morning. That's it. It's been a long career.

After reworking his contract in recent weeks, Incognito fired his agent a few days ago. My liver and kidneys are shutting down.

In 2013, Incognito was suspended by the Dolphins for misconduct related to the treatment of teammate Jonathan Martin. For one, Incognito has already said he "Absolutely" won't be changing his mind.

"It pisses me the "f" off", Incognito told Carucci of the drop in pay.

Incognito, 34, has played 11 National Football League seasons, reaching the Pro Bowl in 2012 as a Dolphin and 2015, 2016 and 2017 as a Bill.

"I'm done, I'm done, that's it", Incognito told the News. Plus, it appears that Incognito's body is kind of falling apart after 12 seasons in the NFL. For now, Richie Incognito's career is over.

That launched an inquiry that lasted months by NFL-appointed investigator Ted Wells, who determined that Pouncey, Incognito and Jerry engaged in a pattern of abuse. Martin wrote suicide and revenge were the only options for a victim of bullying.

Drafted by the Rams in the third round in 2005, the team cut ties with him after he head-butted two opposing players in 2009; he'd accumulated 38 penalties in four seasons. Center Eric Wood in January announced the end of his career because of a neck injury, and left tackle Cordy Glenn was traded to the Cincinnati Bengals in March.
