Incognito retired from the NFL as a Buffalo Bill after the 2018 season. Less than a month later, he announced he wanted to play.
The Bills released Incognito, and he became an unrestricted free agent. Incognito did not land on any team for the 2018 season, however. Instead, the former offensive lineman found himself dealing with a string of legal issues, starting just two days after his release from the Bills.In that incident, police were called to a fitness center in Boca Raton, Florida, for a disturbance allegedly involving Incognito.
In August of 2018,Incognito was arrested at an Arizona funeral home for disorderly conduct.
Incognito, now 35, started his career with the Los Angeles Rams (then known as the St. Louis Rams) in 2005. He also played for the Miami Dolphins.
