Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Richie Incognito is one of the league’s most colorful personalities. While he has had his fair share of off-the-field issues (Miami Dolphins bullying incident), he has been a solid contributor on the offensive line, helping the Bills reach the playoffs for the first time in over a decade last season.
His latest headline-grabbing action comes in the form of a Tweet:
@AthletesFirst You are Fired! I wish you guys nothing but the best moving forward. Thank you for all of your help and guidance along the way. It’s time for me to go in a new direction ??

It is unclear if he actually fired his agency, Athletes First, via a rather-polite Tweet. Believe it or not, this actually is not the first time he has done this. He did almost the exact same thing back in 2014, albeit with a little less colorful of language. Four years ago, however, he retracted his statement and actually gave the agency a shoutout claiming “tu es mi familia” (you are my family).
The 34-year-old restructured the final year of his contract with the Bills to return for a fifth season, likely with the help of Athletes First, so it is not known whether or not he actually fired them.
