2-year, $14 million deal for Incognito https://t.co/7lL6tykLBl— Vic Tafur (@VicTafur) December 30, 2019
It’s no surprise that the Raiders are interested in bringing Incognito to Las Vegas. He’s been a stud for them in the middle and has been an ideal partner for Kolton Miller on the left side of the offensive line.
While the 36-year-old Incognito has been respected for a long time in the NFL, this contract will actually pay him a good chunk more than he’s ever made in a season. His previous season-high earnings was about $5.55 million, per Spotrac.
When the Raiders brought Incognito in, many scrutinized the move due to the linemen’s checkered past filled with off field issues. But he’s been a model citizen for the Raiders thus far and fits perfectly in with their super-sized offensive line.
With this deal paying out during Incognito’s age 37 and 38 seasons, there’s no telling if he will be able to continue to play at this high level.
