Former Husker offensive lineman Richie Incognito is signing with the Oakland Raiders, according to reports, continuing his NFL career after a brief hiatus.

The veteran guard briefly retired, but was free to resume his career after the Bills released him from their reserve/retired list in May of 2018.

The Raiders will be Incognito's fourth team. He began his career with the Rams, has made two stints with the Bills and also played four seasons in Miami, where his career was put on an 18-month pause following his role in a bullying scandal

Incognito, who will be 36 in July, had run-ins with the law in 2018. In May, he allegedly threw a dumbbell at a man in a gym. He was put on psychiatric hold but charges weren't pressed. Then, in August, Incognito was accused of threatening to shoot funeral home employees

He could face a suspension from the NFL over his conduct.

“We’ve talked to the NFL, we’ve stayed in touch with them,” Raiders General Manager Mike Mayock said. “There’s a chance there could be league discipline. Don’t know what it will be. It’s a one-year, minimum prove-it deal, and we feel that he’s incented properly to stay straight and we don’t know what the NFL will do.”

Incognito, a third-round pick in 2005, has played and started 150 games in his career, and is a four-time Pro Bowler.
