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.
