  • Richie Incognito allegedy shouted racial slurs at a Jaguars defensive end

Richie Incognito, 34, allegedly shouted racial slurs at Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue during Jacksonville's 10-3 win over Buffalo Sunday, Ngakoue claims.

If that wasn't enough to start a firestorm, Ngakoue added the hashtag #iaintjonathanmartin. Ngakoue tweeted. "I'm proud of my African heritage, as are 70% of the other Black players in this league".

One of the most disturbing pieces of evidence from National Football League investigator Ted Wells' 2014 report was a voice message Incognito left Martin, referring to the offensive tackle as the N-word and saying he'll kill him. When Ngakoue was asked what the racial slurs were he responded that he didn't remember specifically but that the Bills' player definitely made them.

As of Sunday night, Incognito did not make a public response to Ngakoue's accusation.

"I couldn't", Ngakoue said.




Buffalo Bills guard Richie Incognito (64), a former Dolphin, warms up with center Eric Wood before a game against the Dolphins in Miami Gardens last month. Campbell also said it seemed like Bills players were deliberately trying to antagonize Jaguars players.

Ngakoue said he didn't make a scene during the game.

How different was this than the usual trash talk? "For him to go to social media and to put it out there, I don't think he's lying".

Ngakoue saw it differently, saying Incognito's words came after a pass play. "That's why we have this platform to use to try and help bring change".

"Stuff isn't going to bother you but when somebody says something about your ethnicity, that's really kind of taking it too far".
