With Incognito retiring, the Bills have now lost their three best offensive linemen this offseason.

The Bills guard told Buffalo News writer Vic Carucci that he is retiring from the sport because the stress is "killing him".

"It's been a long career", Incognito told Carucci. "Nothing I can't restore with some balance, but the stress is killing me". It's just about doing what's right.

"It pisses me the f-- off", Incognito told The Buffalo News about his pay cut.

The development comes a week after Incognito fired his agent, David Dunn, in a post on Twitter.

Incognito has started at left guard for the Bills for the past three seasons.

Incognito has also chimed in on his personal Twitter page, telling the NFL Players Association that he's done.

Incognito's recent pay cut reduced his base salary from $6.3 million to $3.7 million, but he received a $1 million bonus as part of the restructure.

Incognito explained to the Buffalo News that his health issues are connected to his diet, which was aimed at maintaining his size and strength.

Among the four names tagged were former Dolphins teammates Richie Incognito and Mike Pouncey.

King followed up with another saying that Incognito is talking to the Bills about revisiting his deal and has until Sunday to change his mind about calling it a career.

"So that's why I'm done", Incognito said. For now, Richie Incognito's career is over. Louis Rams in 2005, he was waived by the team in 2009, claimed by the Miami Dolphins, and suspended indefinitely in 2013 for his role in a bullying scandal involving teammate Jonathan Martin. He played 12 National Football League seasons, four of those with the Bills.

The Bills' offensive line is already undergoing a shuffle after center Eric Wood was diagnosed with a career-ending neck injury in January.
