Richie Incognito Fires His Agent Via Twitter After Taking Pay Cut With Bills
If there was one NFL player to fire his agent via social media, it would have to be Richie Incognito, right?
The 34-year-old offensive lineman cut ties with agent David Dunn and the firm that has represented him throughout a career–and through all his bullshit (see the bullying scandal in Miami and allegedly hurling a racial slur at an opponent.)
If that tweet sounds a bit Presidential, that may be by design. Incognito is a Trump guy.
Incognito’s breakup with Athletes First–a firm that represents NFL names like Josh Norman, Carson Palmer, and Clay Matthews–comes in the wake of the four-time Pro Bowler restricting his contract in Buffalo. According to Pro Football Talk’s Darin Gantt, the restructuring cut his base salary from $6.325 million to $3.65 million, while tacking on a $1 million roster bonus and clearing up $1.675 million in cap space for the organization.
Incognito will return to Buffalo, who last season ended the NFL’s longest playoff drought.
