Former Dolphins guard Richie Incognito accused of using 'racist slur' vs. Jaguars

Former Dolphins guard Richie Incognito accused of using 'racist slur' vs. Jaguars

Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue says Buffalo Bills guard Richie Incognito used "weak racist slurs" during their playoff game Sunday. Stuff is not going to bother you, but when somebody says something about your ethnicity, that's really kind of taking it a little bit too far. I understand trying to give yourself an advantage and you see somebody trying to egg them on to try to get a penalty, I understand that.

How different was this than the usual trash talk?

For now, no other Jaguars players have come forward with similar accusations and Incognito hasn't responded to the claim, but Buffalo offensive lineman, Dion Dawkins, rebutted it on Twitter. "It's part of the game, but you can't say certain things".

Jones said he could tell Ngakoue was upset but wasn't sure why. "He knows what he said. I was rushing the passer and words were said, so I felt like I had to say it".

"I just feel like people needed to know what happened yesterday". "I couldn't confront him. You don't go to racial slurs; that's not OK".

Why share on social media? "He usually swings, so that's an improvement".

Richie Incognito didn't have the best reputation when the Buffalo Bills signed him three years ago.

The #IaintJonathanMartin hashtag is in reference to the former Dolphins offensive lineman who accused Incognito of bullying him during his stint in Miami, which resulted in Incognito's eight-game suspension at the end of the 2013 season. Incognito was suspended for the incident and later released by the Dolphins once the messages and the report became public. Incognito's attorney later called the report "replete with errors". But while expressing his delight at the big win, the second-year pro also revealed how Bills offensive lineman Richie Incognito allegedly threw some racist slurs at him during the game.
