The contract will pay Incognito $15.75M over three years.
The offensive guard signed a one-year contract last season after sitting out of football for over one season and arguably put together the best season of his NFL career. Incognito played a pivotal role as a run blocker in the NFL's No. 1 rushing attack in the league. The three year deal almost ensures that Incognito will finish his career with the Bills.
Bills GM Doug Whaley spoke to BuffaloBills.com about the deal:
“It was a major point of emphasis this offseason because you love to have those big uglies up there for continuity sake and the longer you can keep them together the better they are going to be,” said Whaley. “And again Jim Overdorf has done wonders with always having cap space and money available for us to get the most important people done.”
By re-signing Incognito and placing the franchise tag on Cordy Glenn, the left side of Buffalo's offensive line will take intact for at least one more season.
