Jags Player Accuses Bills' Richie Incognito of Using Racial Slurs

  • Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Richie Incognito

Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue took to social media Sunday night to accuse Buffalo Bills guard Richie Incognito of using a racial slur during the teams' AFC wild card game.

Incognito was suspended for eight games that season for what report described as "a pattern of harassment" against Martin, which included racial slurs.

"Great win to day! I'm proud of my African heritage, as are 70% of the other Black players in this league", Ngakoue tweeted.

Offensive lineman Dion Dawkins sent out a tweet saying that he was, "next to my guy the entire game and the entire season" and never heard any racist comments come from Incognito.




Following Ngakoue's polarizing post, an Incognito teammate vouched for the 12-year National Football League vet. "But if he did overstep, I would have said something".

Said center Eric Wood, via 13WHAM ABC and Fox Rochester sports anchor Toby Motyka on Twitter: "It was chippy out there but I didn't hear anything". "I don't know anything about it". "I'm pretty sure I'm not the only person that heard stuff". "But honestly I didn't hear it so I can't speak either way on it".

Richie Incognito, the Bills guard involved in a bullying scandal five years ago, used racial slurs during Sunday's game against the Jaguars, an opponent alleged. Jaguars defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, formerly of the Bills, said he was unaware there was an incident.

"I think they were really trying to get us to lose our cool and try to get penalties", Campbell said. I saw you on Twitter, you been training 10 weeks. "For him to go to social media and to put it out there, I don't think he's lying". But if he did overstep, I would have said something. The accusation turned into a lengthy investigation, which uncovered a racially charged voicemail Incognito left for Martin.
