The free agent guard publicly shared text exchanges with the late Tony Sparano during tweet storm.
Free agent offensive guard Richie Incognito's offseason has been wacky. It became a bit wackier Tuesday.
The Buffalo Bills asked Incognito to take a pay cut, which he refused.
After he had already flip-flopped into and out of retirement, the Bills cut the 35-year-old on May 21. Two days later, he got involved in an altercation at a Florida gym that led to him being taken into custody on involuntary psychiatric hold.
But following the incident, in late June, Incognito told TMZ he had garnered interest for his services from both the Minnesota Vikings and the Seattle Seahawks.
It's unknown whether the Seahawks are still interested in Incognito. However, Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer shut down any speculation of whether his team has any desire signing the four-time Pro Bowler.
"No interest and totally false. Tweet that," Zimmer told reporters Tuesday morning.
Incognito caught wind of Zimmer's statement Tuesday afternoon on Twitter and unleashed his bewilderment in a series of tweets in which he called Zimmer "a F------ LIAR!!'
The free agent also posted screengrabs of texts exchanged with the late Tony Sparano, then the Vikings offensive line coach, whom Incognito said he spoke with "weekly" following his release from Buffalo.
Those tweets about Zimmer have since been deleted prompting Incognito to issue an apology.
I would also like to apologize to Coach Mike Zimmer. My bad dude! Tony was a father figure to me. Still dealing with his loss ✝️— Richie Incognito (@68INCOGNITO) August 8, 2018
