Buffalo Bills left guard Richie Incognito is retiring from the NFL. But, speaking with Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News, Incognito said, "I'm done".

"It's been a long career", Incognito said. "That's it." Incognito added he is experiencing liver and kidney problems and is being affected by stress. The stress is killing me. "I just want to be in the Hall of Fame", Incognito said.

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. The announcement made on the NFLPA's Twitter account, came after Incognito revealed his intention to retire through a series of tweets and comments made to several publications throughout the morning. The veteran recently restructured the final year of his contract, as he took a slight pay cut to free up some cap space for the Bills. "And that's it", Incognito said.

Earlier, The MMQB reported he was still in talks with Buffalo about his contract and has until Sunday to change his mind - read differently, the Bills have until Sunday to offer him enough money to stay.

Given the complexity of the crisis , only time will tell just how long "long-term" will be. Several nations, including the United States attended an emergency session of the U.N.

Incognito is leaving football a little over three years since signing a one-year deal with Buffalo to resume his career after spending 18 months away from the game. He played 12 National Football League seasons, four of those with the Bills. An NFL investigation determined Incognito and two other Dolphins offensive linemen persistently harassed Martin. It was heavily hinted at by Martin that he was bullied by the former Cornhusker because he was black.

In 2015, after serving a suspension for the bullying, Incognito did move to the Bills where he apparently finished out his career in the last three years.

The Bills traded left tackle Cordy Glenn to the Cincinnati Bengals, and center Eric Wood retired.
