Richie Incognito: I'm done, the stress is killing me

Richie Incognito: I'm done, the stress is killing me

The contract and all that pissed me the f off and all that, but [retiring] has nothing to do with that, ' Incognito said, via the Buffalo News. That's it. It's been a long career. The stress is killing me.

He said that during a recent visit to a doctor, he was told, "Listen, the stress is killing you, what are you doing?" and he replied, "Listen, I'm just doing what I love, and that's playing football".

Incognito posted the brief message shortly after Sports Illustrated reported the 34-year-old is 'strongly considering retirement'.

The Bills did not immediately respond to a request seeking comment.

Incognito said he's talking to the Bills about his decision and that he has until Sunday to change his mind about leaving the NFL. Incognito would miss the entire 2014 season before resurrecting his career in Buffalo. The veteran recently restructured the final year of his contract, as he took a slight pay cut to free up some cap space for the Bills.

Last week, Incognito fired his agent in a tweet.

On March 15, Incognito tweeted: "BUFFALO!"

Incognito had been a stabilizing force on the Bills' offensive line, being named to the Pro Bowl in each of the last three seasons and having started all 49 games, including one playoff appearance, in that time. Plus, it appears that Incognito's body is kind of falling apart after 12 seasons in the NFL.

Incognito completed his third season with the Bills, who provided him a second chance at continuing his career. In 2009, he began his first, short stay with Buffalo before going to the Miami Dolphins. An NFL investigation determined Incognito and two other Dolphins offensive linemen persistently harassed Martin. Martin accused Incognito and Pouncey of bullying him following racially-charged incidents in 2013.

Incognito, who turns 35 in July, made the Pro Bowl four times, including three times with the Bills.
