“I’m anti-bully,” Ryan said. “I’m about the biggest anti-bully guy there is, especially in the locker room and in the community. When I mentioned building a bully, it’s funny, because [of] the old [Philadelphia] Flyers, the Broad Street Bullies.
“We want to have a mean, physical football team on the field, but we want to be gentlemen off it. And I believe Richie will be that.”
Incognito met with Ryan, general manager Doug Whaley and owners Terry and Kim Pegula before signing with the Bills. Terry Pegula released a statement Monday saying he felt convinced Incognito had moved on from a troubled tenure in Miami that ended in an eight-game suspension in 2013, and Ryan echoed those thoughts Thursday.
I like this signing, because you want mean players, especially protecting your quarterback.
