Richie Incognito, the four-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman and former Miami Dolphin known for his role in the 2013 bullying scandal, announced his National Football League retirement Tuesday.

SI's Peter King reported early Tuesday that Incognito may be ready to retire. That decision came after Incognito accepted a pay cut by restructuring the final year of his contract.

The 34-year-old has played with the Bills since the 2015 season, and was previously with the team during the 2009 season. It's been a long career.

After agreeing to the terms of the restructured deal, Incognito last week posted a message on his official Twitter account, indicating he was terminating his relationship with Athletes First, the agency that represented him.

Incognito told Carucci that his liver and kidneys are "shutting down", so his best option might be to walk away from football.

This is the 50th year on tour for The Heritage, which was first played in 1969, with Arnold Palmer claiming the inaugural event. All week, he was deadly with the putter, ice cold. "Worst-case scenario we'll make par". "I was growing up watching him".

Incognito reportedly has until Sunday about changing his mind about retiring from the NFL. "The stress is killing me", Incognito told the Buffalo News.

"It pisses me the f off", Incognito said. It's just about doing what's right. Incognito has started at left guard for the Bills for the past three seasons.

This comes just days after Incognito made national sports news by firing his agent on twitter and just a few weeks before the 2018 NFL Draft. For now, Richie Incognito's career is over. It was heavily hinted at by Martin that he was bullied by the former Cornhusker because he was black. Martin accused Incognito and Pouncey of bullying him following racially-charged incidents in 2013.

The Bills offensive line is already undergoing a shuffle after center Eric Wood was diagnosed with a career-ending neck injury in January. The Bills also traded offensive tackle Cordy Glenn to the Bengals.
