Should we sign LG Ritchie Incognito?

Recommended Posts

Richie Incognito is a free agent. This would be a pretty good signing for us. Even a 1 year deal to get us to 2019. Hes better than any option we have at left guard In my opinion

It would be a great get at this point in FA.  I just really doubt it happens.  After the whole Craven's saga last year, I'm not sure how willing they'd be to risk a player quitting on the team again before the season even starts.

He's still a very good player. He's a perfect fit for our biggest need. I despise and detest him with every fiber of my being.

It's a tough call.

No, it's really not.

I have ZERO interest in seeing him in burgundy & gold.

I understand the distaste for him as a human being, but as a football player, he should be signed immediately. Could you imagine him next to Trent?

released from Bills and not retiring.. might be the stop gap at LG we need in our Super Bowl run in 18 with our new MVP QB?

Sorry Bro I posted this as a new topic then saw you were ahead of me! 

From what I’m hearing, we are primed for a Super Bowl run in 18 with our QB, Wr’s with best team speed, RB and dramatically improved defense. Signing a left guard is needed because we don’t want that as the reason (excuse) we don’t make the playoffs!

He wanted to retire but found out if he did the Bills would take back some of his bonus.  Now that’s he’s been cut I expect he’ll just retire.

Hes going to play I bet. His agent convinced him to restructure deal last year and he took a pay cut. One of the top guards in the league. Buffalo screwed him in my opinion. Hes worth more than he was going to make.

I know he has some baggage but at this point in the NFL, who doesn't? I think the wrap he has is actually worse than what it really is.

We DEFINITELY should!

He's mean & we need a LG.

2 yr deal

pay him what he's worth

be careful on guaranteed money & cap hits with his contract though.

He could up & decide to retire. Don't want that messing with our dead cap space.

We should have enough cap, to offer him a deal.

We'd have one of the meanest and best OL's in the league with this signing.  I think there is a 0% chance it happens though.

Signing a guy with a racially checkered past for a team mired in conversations regarding racism? Seems like something we’d do.

If he doesn’t retire yes we should. Do I expect us to? No, no I don’t.

Allt of us would have rather seen the Redskins sign Alex Boone or Jhari Evans as a stop gap instead of resigning Shawn Lauvao but they chose to resign Lauvao, so I think we should just accept that there’s a 99% certainly that Lauvao will be our starting LG when the season starts.

I don’t think that the Redskins FO will sign  a Lg. I don’t agree with it, but when Lauvao was re-signed after the draft it was a signal that he will once again be our starting guard to start the season.

I hope have Nsekhe and Clemmings compete with Lauvao for the starting LG spot along with Bergstrom, Kalis, Catalina, Jefferson and Dunn - and one of them beats him out - but I’ll be shocked if Lauvao isn’t our starting LG week 1 again.
