Well, it appears retirement didn't last for Richie Incognito very long. The former Pro Bowler is back in the NFL after a brief hiatus from football.

Incognito began his career as a third-round pick with the St. Louis Rams. Following his time with the franchise, the talented offensive lineman spent a few games with the Buffalo Bills.

He remained in the AFC East for the next few seasons, signing multiple deals with the Miami Dolphins. Although Incognito did provide a boost in the trenches, his relationship off the field with Jonathan Martin did spark a few concerns.

Once Incognito's tenure in Miami ran its courts, he returned to Buffalo and made three-straight appearances in the Pro Bowl. Following the 2017 season, Incognito told the Bills that he was done playing football. Despite flirting with the idea of returning to the gridiron immediately, he decided to sit out for the year.

Now, Incognito will try to re-establish himself as a force in the NFL.

According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Oakland Raiders have signed Incognito to a one-year deal.

This offseason was filled with splash moves for the Raiders.

Oakland added Antonio Brown, Tyrell Williams and Trent Brown to help its offense. Perhaps the addition of Incognito will help keep Derek Carr clean in the pocket.
