New OL Richie Incognito Fined $50,000 for Two Unnecessary Roughness Fouls

Richie Incognito was fined $50,000 by the NFL on Friday for two unnecessary roughness fouls, punctuating a rough week for the guard.

Playing last Sunday in the St. Louis Rams’ 47-7 loss to the Tennessee Titans, Incognito head-butted Sen’Derrick Marks in the first half. He did the same thing to Vincent Fuller later in the half, then was benched by coach Steve Spagnuolo.

The Rams released him on Tuesday and he signed with the Buffalo Bills on Thursday.

Incognito was fined for the head-butt on Marks and for a late hit against Fuller. The infractions were his fifth and sixth for unnecessary roughness this season.

In a letter to Incognito, NFL executive vice president of football operations Ray Anderson wrote: “Future infractions of the types you have committed may lead to increased disciplinary action up to and including suspension.”

    I don’t like dirty players but I’d rather have a guy that is tough and has an attitude than some of the panty wastes Buffalo has had. I remember alot of noise when the Bills picked up Conrad Dobler now that was a dirty player. For the rest of the Bills complaining maybe they should toughen up.
