"I'm done. That's it. It's been a long career," Incognito told the Buffalo News. "Went to the doctor. My liver and kidneys are shutting down. The stress is killing me. It's just about doing what's right. I just want to be in the Hall of Fame."


No mas - ( New Window )

No matter. Either way another example of how a career in the NFL shortens lives.

He's got CTE,.
Not saying he's not juiced to the gills

And don't think HGH over use helped but guys walking around at 300-350 pounds is just really really bad long term

For all The attention the head Trauma situation gets the high risks
They linemen face due to large body mass, diabetes, and hypertension are swept under The rug at best. Demetia and all the risks associated with CTE are horrible. But are leg amputations, serious issues related hypertension and diabetes are ok though. I mean dialysis is fun. Ulcers and sound issues are nothing.

The myopia people have of all the dangers these guys face due to their weight and position should be Cause for outrage as the CTE issue I guess it's not sexy enough to make Movie about

article won't load for me. He may be an ass, but he was a damn good guard for a long time. The Bills are gonna be awful.
Guilt-causing stress...

They say it is the worst kind.

BUF is going to very bad in 2018....getting a first rounder from them in 2019 is a major GET if they trade

Wait, what?
Good player

The Giants definitely could’ve used a 4x pro bowler with a nasty streak on the OL this decade.

I agree with your comment above.

If the Giants do trade with Buffalo, I would not do it unless Buffalo had acquired the 5th or 6th (more likely) pick.

We would need the 6th, 22nd, and next years # 1.

It would cost us pick #2, and our 3rd rounder in 2019.

Its a steep price, but history has shown that is about the value to get pick # 2.

And my answer is YES, I would make that trade if it was on the table.

Good player but a scumbag of a human being going all the way back to his college years. There is no way the Giants ever would have touched this guy.
I remember bumping into  
prdave73 : 4/10/2018 5:54 pm : link
him at a Verizon Wireless store in Rancho Mirage ca. I spoke with him for a bit and asked him what he was doing in the Palm Springs area. He told me he was there for some rehab that was required by the team and that once he was finished he was going to Arizona to take a break with his family. This was around that time after that bullying incident with Jonathan Martin so it made sense. He seemed like a nice guy, but you can tell he wasn't all there..
He'll get in  
Montreal Man : 4/11/2018 6:25 am : link
but under a different name.
Not sure what to believe  
giantsFC : 4/11/2018 9:31 am : link
About the bully gate after seeing how much of a whack job Martin actually is. But he def seemed like that immature obnoxious teammate everyone has.

Serviceable starter.
