Disturbing new details have emerged about Richie Incognito‘s arrest. According to the arrest report, funeral home employees say the former Bills Pro Bowler wanted his father’s head cut off for research purposes and walked through the funeral home punching caskets and throwing objects (via Stevie Johnson of the Democrat and Chronicle).
Incognito also made a gun gesture towards an employee and told him that he had guns in his truck. When police searched Incognito’s car, they found a tan Glock 17 9mm handgun, a black Glock 35 .40-caliber handgun, three rifles and four magazines.
Here’s more from the AFC East:
- Some Patriots fans have been clamoring for Dez Bryant after the release of Kenny Britt, but Doug Kyed of NESN.com doesn’t think it’s an automatic fit. Bryant famously turned down a $7MM/year from the Ravens while accomplished wide receiver Eric Decker came on board for less than $2MM. If Bryant still wants top dollar, the Pats might not be the right place for him. Bryant may be a better option than Decker, but he’s not necessarily worth more than triple the money, Kyed argues. It’s also worth noting that Decker came in with knowledge of offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels’ offense while Bryant would have to learn the offense in less than three weeks.
- There has been a lot of talk about a potential Teddy Bridgewater trade, but Brian Costello of the New York Post doesn’t think the Jets should be in any rush to trade the quarterback. Nothing says the have to move Bridgewater before the season starts and he argues that it doesn’t make sense to do so unless a starting QB gets hurt in the preseason and that team gets desperate. Personally, I think it’s hard to argue with that line of thinking. Bridgewater has shown that he is a starting-caliber QB, and the Jets should not settle for anything short of full price for the former Vikings standout.
