Incognito thinks Raiders fit his personality best


If Richie Incognito had the choice, he'd return to the Miami Dolphins. He also has to know that's not going to happen.

So the veteran guard, who is trying to rehabilitate his image after being the center of the Dolphins' alleged "bullying" scandal, is setting his sights elsewhere -- ironically (or, maybe not), at an organization know for its history of roughhousing.

Incognito told NFL Media's Michael Silver this week that he'd be '100 percent into' signing with the Oakland Raiders.

"I think that would fit my personality the best," Incognito said. "It makes so much sense. . . . the Raiders have that aura."

Personality? Yeah. Personnel? Sure.

"I know (offensive coordinator Greg) Olson and (offensive line coach Tony) Sparano, and I'm a loyal guy, and I'd love to play for them again," he said.

Incognito player under Sparano during Sparano's tenure as the Dolphins' head coach a few years ago. He worked with Olson during the player-coach duo's time with the St. Louis Rams in the mid/late-2000s.
