Bills captain irate over Incognito move

By Tim Graham

Hey, Richie Incognito!

Welcome to the Buffalo Bills!

Or not.

Incognito
Mitchell
The Bills on Wednesday claimed Incognito, a guard with a filthy reputation, off waivers from the St. Louis Rams.

One of the Bills' captains was livid with the move.

Bills linebacker Kawika Mitchell, on injured reserve since mid-October with a shredded knee, tweeted a resounding blast about Incognito. Mitchell's passage was confirmed as authentic by a source close to Mitchell.

"BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT THIS YR. THE GUYS A BUM. DIRTY AND ALWAYS WILL BE. REALLY WISH I WAS PLAYIN RITE NOW. SERIOUSLY... I KNO WE'RE N NEED OF OLINE BUT THIS GUY ..."

Mitchell finished his thought with an accusation not suitable for a family blog -- or a nightclub restroom wall.

Mitchell later apologized on his Twitter page, writing (not in all caps, so he must have been calmer):

"I said what I said bout iggy and it's over. Everything else will b handled n house. We've had our moments b4 when KC played SL. I was wrong 4 startin sumthin. Shouldve saved it."

Incognito has committed 11 personal fouls since 2006. The Rams had enough of his act when he was called for two personal fouls in Sunday's game and engaged in a verbal confrontation with head coach Steve Spagnuolo.

Incognito's contract is up after the season, so there's a good chance he and Mitchell never will square off on the practice field.
