It would appear that the NFL's face of bullying is finally going to get another shot on an NFL team after a long time of waiting. Former Miami Dolphins Pro Bowl guard Richie Incognito is about to sign with the Buffalo Bills. Incognito, 31, hasn't played in the NFL since 2013, when he was suspended indefinitely by the Miami Dolphins due to the repercussions of the bullying scandal involving himself and former Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Jonathan Martin.
While the signing of Incognito is somewhat of a surprise for anyone who was aware of just how big of a deal this was made in the eyes of the NFL and of course the media, at the same time it isn't because the man who is currently heading up the Buffalo Bills is someone who admires Incognito's physical play-style. That man is Rex Ryan, infamous for his ground-and-pound mentality, which is a perfect philosophy for Incognito.
Perhaps there's a certain amount of poetic justice involved in all of this, as Bills head coach Rex Ryan has stated that he intends to build a team that "bullies" the opposing team. I suppose a good place to start would be to sign the man who - regardless of whose side you were on during the scandal - is considered the biggest bully in the NFL.
