In one aspect, Buffalo Bills guard Richie Incognito appreciates the NFL's pre-draft industry, what with all its mocks and prospect scouting reports and rumors. "It's another source of revenue for us," Incognito said Thursday at One Bills Drive. "It's a big deal. "The more eyes, the more attention on football is good for all the players, good for the league, good for …

Three games into last season, BuffaloBills.com posted a story lauding General Manager Doug Whaley's roster-building acumen. The story declared Whaley was "awfully close" to "building a roster that can perennially compete for the postseason and championships." An examination of all 32 NFL rosters reveals Whaley has constructed the Bills in contradictory fashion, relyi…

The epicenter of a national phenomenon is located on 900 square feet in the Walden Galleria. On the second floor, between Abercrombie & Fitch and Perfumania, where a frozen yogurt shop used to be, is a molten nexus of sports, pop culture, sneakers and art. Fabes Sole High was founded for the serious sneaker customer, folks who desire the hottest brands, who colle…

Bills left guard Richie Incognito said Wednesday that he has declined to speak with Jonathan Martin since the 2013 bullying scandal despite Martin's attempts to get in touch. "He’s reached out and tried to speak a few times, but I have nothing to say," Incognito told Miami reporters on a conference call. "I think the story’s kind of played itself out. Jonathan…

Eric Dickerson's record would be skunked. O.J. Simpson's magical 2,003? Vaporized. Adrian Peterson, Barry Sanders and Terrell Davis would have nothing on Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy. The greatest rushing seasons in NFL history would be dots in McCoy's rearview mirror if his first-half production held up over the course of an entire game 16 times. Mc…

Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito will forever be linked. As the central figures of the 2013 bullying scandal that rocked the Miami Dolphins – Martin the abused and Incognito one of the main abusers – their careers have gone in vastly different directions. Martin has washed out of professional football, retiring from the Carolina Panthers before the start of the 20…

You may have thought Richie Incognito chose to re-sign with the Buffalo Bills because they took a chance on him when the embattled offensive lineman's career was at its lowest point. For all the other reasons that The Buffalo News' Tyler Dunne wrote in his feature and the ensuing article confirming his re-signing, like Incognito's praise for Rex Ryan, his frequenting of B…

What a wild weekend in Buffalo sports. The hosts of "Sports Talk Sunday" discussed the unexpected return of the University at Buffalo men's team to the NCAA Tournament, while recognizing the monumental accomplishment of Felisha Legette-Jack in taking the Bulls women to their first-ever Big Dance.

[UPDATE, March 8: Bills re-sign guard Richie Incognito at three years, $15.75 million] PHOENIX – His torso is unlike any torso on any NFL offensive line, as if God built a house on two legs. Massive, tattooed, busting out of his white henley, Richie Incognito weaves through patrons half his size at The Henry, an upscale restaurant off Camelback Road. With each turn, ey…

Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor picked a good time to have a bad game. Taylor threw three interceptions Sunday in his first Pro Bowl appearance. That's half as many as he threw all season with the Buffalo Bills. The good news? Nobody cares – including the players. The game of two-hand touch that is the NFL's all-star showcase ended with a 49-27 victory for the t…

The Buffalo Bills' trio at the Pro Bowl will be playing for the same side. The league held its fantasy-style draft Wednesday – broadcasting the event on ESPN2 (of course) – and Buffalo Bills teammates Richie Incognito, Eric Wood and Tyrod Taylor were all drafted to the team led by NFL Hall of Famer Jerry Rice. They will take on a team led by Hall of Famer Michael Irv…

1. Maybe, when nobody’s looking, Richie Incognito is still the same. Maybe he didn’t learn a thing from his time in Miami. Maybe those terrible text messages he sent to former teammate Jonathan Martin are a window into the soul of a hateful person. Or, maybe, Incognito’s story is one of redemption. Truthfully, I don’t know. As a reporter, I do get more access to p…

It looks like Tyrod Taylor and Eric Wood will have another one of their teammates joining them in Hawaii for the Pro Bowl.

Doug Whaley has made it clear the Buffalo Bills' top priority in the 2016 offseason is to keep the left side of his team's offensive line together. The price to make sure tackle Cordy Glenn and guard Richie Incognito don't go anywhere, though, will be high. In separate rankings of the top 20 available pending unrestricted free agents by nfl.com and analytics website Pro …
