NFL Free Agent Rumors: Oakland Raiders won’t rule out signing Richie Incognito


Begrudged NFL offensive lineman Richie Incognito is free to return to the NFL, assuming a team wants him – though he reportedly must pass an exam from NFL evaluators before he can actually play.

Still, he’s free to sign with any team who has interest – and one such team might be the Oakland Raiders.

Incognito himself said he’d be more than happy to play for the Raiders earlier this month, but it wasn’t known if Oakland truly had interest in the lineman. It appears there’s at least some because owner Mark Davis refuses to rule out signing the veteran.

Raiders owner Mark Davis won’t rule out signing Richie Incognito.

Incognito was a member of the St. Louis Rams during his first two NFL seasons and played under Greg Olson, St. Louis’ former offensive coordinator. Olson is now Oakland’s offensive coordinator, so it’s possible their history could give Oakland a leg up on signing Incognito, who, assuming his head on straight would be a valuable addition.

Possible interest aside, there have been no reported contractual talks between the two sides.

    As a long time Raider fan I would love to see the team sign Incognito . I would be first inline to buy his jersey and wear it proudly. I am sure he would be a great bargain
