When the offseason started, the Buffalo Bills made their intentions quite clear: re-signing left guard Richie Incognito was among the top priorities... and for good reason. Incognito was routinely one of the best players on the field for the Bills, and so they signed him to a three-year, $15.75 million deal.
Incognito, who turns 33 before training camp begins in late July, is now well paid for his services. But the question is, just how good was the Bills starting left guard in 2015?
According to ProFootballFocus.com, only 30 players in the entire National Football League had a better season. In their annual Top 101 ranking from the previous year, they ranked Incognito as the 31st best player in the league, and came in behind only Baltimore's Marshall Yanda (16th) for the best guard in 2015.
Incognito was joined by both cornerback Ronald Darby (82nd) and wide receiver Sammy Watkins (95th) as the only three members of the team to crack the rankings. Defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, left tackle Cordy Glenn, cornerback Stephon Gilmore, and quarterback Tyrod Taylor all did not make the annual list.
