Bills add Richie Incognito

The Buffalo Bills have acquired guard Richie Incognito, a day after he was placed on waivers by the St. Louis Rams.

Incognito was let go after getting two personal fouls in the Rams’ loss to the Tennessee Titans and getting into a verbal confrontation with coach Steve Spagnuolo on the sidelines.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Dolphins also put in a waiver claim for Incognito, but the Bills get him because they have a worse record. Dolphins front office boss Bill Parcells said when he was hired that he didn’t want “thugs and hoodlums” on his team. Apparently he doesn’t think Incognito is either.

Until he was waived on Tuesday, Incognito had spent his entire five-year career with the Rams. He started nine games for St. Louis this season.

    “thugs and hoodlums” policy doesn’t count when you’re thin at a position I guess.
    There is also a difference between saying you *won’t* have “thugs and hoodlums” and not *wanting* thugs and hoodlums. I think you can still sign a “thug or hoodlum” without wanting that element, out of necessity.
    The reality is when you’re thin at a position in the middle of a season, you’ll probably take whatever you can get. 😀

    If the Cowboys could have picked him up, they could have lined him up next to Flozell. What a cute, clean, gentle pair that would be!

    Pfff, no brainer. Bills line just got better over night. 3rd sting o-line is easy to improve.

    I thought you had to at least perform in order to be allowed to be a bad-ass. This guy sucks. The last time he got to the 2nd level was on an original NES version of Super Mario bros. Ba-da-bing.

    @skip7 would have made an excellent pair and would have combined for a significant amount of penalties also.
