'Weak racial slurs': Richie Incognito in another National Football League controversy

'Weak racial slurs': Richie Incognito in another National Football League controversy

Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue accused Incognito after Sunday's Wildcard Round match in Florida, which Jacksonville won 10-3 to progress.

Incognito was not available during the Bills' open locker room period on Monday but two teammates spoke in his defense and told reporters they did not hear him use any racial slurs.

"(Incognito) said what he said yesterday, and like I said before, we had a great team win yesterday and I said what I needed to say yesterday", Ngakoue said.

Ngakoue said on Twitter that a Buffalo player wearing No. 64 was "goin [g] to come harder than some weak racist slurs". Ngakoue tweeted that he is proud of his African heritage, as is 70 percent of the NFL.

"Just for the world to know, everyone always tryna put some bad thing on [Incognito] i was next to my guy the entire game and the entire season and believe me, if he was saying some racist stuff I would have been the first to let him know that was out of line", left tackle Dion Dawkins tweeted Sunday night.

Raiders make it official: Jon Gruden is their new coach
The Raiders fired Jack Del Rio following a 6-10 season as rumors team owner Mark Davis had targeted Gruden to replace Del Rio. The NFL club took to Twitter on Saturday afternoon to offer its former coach a 'welcome back'.

Incognito has not responded to Ngakoue's tweet. "I'm pretty sure I'm not the only person that heard stuff".

Fellow Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell said several Buffalo players were talking trash during the game, especially in the second half.

Ngakoue declined Monday to disclose what Incognito said. I understand trying to give yourself an advantage, and you see somebody trying to egg them on to try to get a penalty, I understand that.

The Dolphins suspended Incognito, who sat out the entire 2014 season before joining the Bills in 2015. "That's why I said what I said". "I couldn't confront him".

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.
