The St. Louis Rams have released guard Richie Incognito, two days after he received a pair of personal fouls and got into a verbal confrontation with coach Steve Spagnuolo on the sideline during the Rams’ loss to the Tennessee Titans.
“As with all other personnel moves, this is what we felt was in the best interest of the team at this time,” Spagnuolo said in a statement released by the team. “We appreciate Richie’s efforts and we wish him the very best.”
Incognito twice head butted Titans players during Sunday’s game, the latest in a long line of incidents in which Incognito failed to control his temper.
Incognito has spent his entire five-year career with the Rams. St. Louis drafted him in the third round of the 2005 NFL draft.
