The Buffalo Bills have now lost three of their top offensive linemen this offseason. Starting center Eric Wood suffered a career-ending injury, left tackle Cordy Glenn was sent to Cincinnati in a trade and now Richie Incognito has shockingly retired.
The news of Incognito’s retirement hit one person particularly hard. Bills starting running back LeSean McCoy, who loves to run behind the mauling guard, expressed his feelings on Instagram Tuesday after the news broke, writing, “Wait wait NOO!! Wood and you … listen 1500 yards I’ll give u 300k CASH .. my favorite WHITE BOY EVER CANT retire lol… love u dog.”
Clearly, losing Incognito and the other linemen is going to impact McCoy, who’s been one of the NFL’s best running backs the past few years in Buffalo running behind them. Since arriving in Buffalo following a trade from Philly, McCoy has rushed for 3,300 yards and 22 touchdowns. Needless to say, he’ll be hard pressed to continue dominating without the big guys paving lanes in front of him.
So, it’s hardly surprising that McCoy would offer some of his cash to keep the big guy around.
