ALAMEDA http://www.panthersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-greg-little-jersey , Calif. (AP) — Mike Mayock and coach Jon Gruden stressed the importance of character when looking for players who could help turn the franchise around.When it comes to veterans, the Raiders have been much more willing to take chances.The latest potentially risky acquisition came on Tuesday when the Raiders signed troubled former Pro Bowl guard Richie Incognito to a one-year contract despite a history that includes a suspension for bullying, run-ins with law enforcement and the potential for another suspension from the NFL.“At the end of the day, you can’t have all Boy Scouts,” Mayock said. “You have to do your homework on each individual case. We’ve done our homework. We’ve talked to an awful lot of people. … We’ve talked to Richie. We’ve told Richie what we expect both on and off the field and we expect him to adhere to that.”Incognito, who turns 36 in July, has played 11 years in the NFL, making the Pro Bowl four times, and immediately becomes the leading contender to start at left guard in Oakland.But he comes with significant baggage, including multiple suspensions in college, the ban for bullying in Miami in 2013, allegations that he made racist slurs to an opponent during a playoff game in January 2018 and two run-ins with police since he retired following the 2017 season.Incognito pleaded guilty last month to disorderly conduct in Scottsdale, Arizona, after being accused of threatening employees at a funeral home where his father’s body was being held. He could face a suspension from the NFL over his conduct.“We’ve talked to the NFL, we’ve stayed in touch with them,” Mayock said. “There’s a chance there could be league discipline. Don’t know what it will be. It’s a one-year Will Grier Jersey , minimum prove-it deal and we feel that he’s incented properly to stay straight and we don’t know what the NFL will do.”Incognito fills a big hole on Oakland’s offensive line after Kelechi Osemele was traded to the New York Jets in the offseason. Denzelle Good had been working at left guard, but the Raiders wanted a more proven option and began talking with Incognito earlier this offseason.He visited the team facility and took a physical early in May but didn’t sign until Tuesday.“He’s just a really tough football player,” said offensive coordinator Greg Olson, who worked with Incognito in St. Louis. “He brings a tough demeanor to the room and the offensive side of the ball. Very talented as well.”In his final game before retirement, Incognito was accused by Jacksonville defensive end Yannick Ngakoue of making racist slurs during the Jaguars‘ 10-3 win over Buffalo in an AFC wild-card playoff game. The NFL looked into the charges but never announced a decision on any punishment. Ngakoue said he and Incognito cleared the air after they were AFC teammates at the Pro Bowl later that month.In May 2018, police in South Florida placed Incognito in a mental hospital after he allegedly threw weights and tennis balls at gym employees and another patron, and told officers the government was spying on him.Incognito was arrested in August 2018 in Arizona on charges he threatened to shoot employees of a funeral home. A police report showed officers later executed a search warrant on Incognito’s pickup truck and seized two Glocks, three rifles and a silencer for a handgun.He pleaded to disorderly conduct in that case in April.A person with direct knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that security was stepped up at the Bills headquarters around the time Incognito announced his retirement on social media. Though he wasn’t entirely barred from the facility, security personnel were placed on alert if Incognito arrived, the person said, speaking to the AP on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to speak publicly.Incognito also was suspended for the final eight games of the 2013 season, when the Dolphins were thrust into the national spotlight after Jonathan Martin abruptly quit the team amid accusations he was being bullied. An NFL investigation determined Incognito and two other Dolphins offensive linemen persistently harassed Martin.Incognito also played three-plus seasons in St. Louis, which drafted him in 2005. He played in college at Nebraska but left after being suspended twice, then transferred to Oregon, though he never played for the Ducks.Incognito earned three of his four Pro Bowl selections in Buffalo and was considered among the Bills’ team leaders. He started all 36 games at left guard for the Bills and was part of a line that led to Buffalo leading the NFL in yards rushing in both 2015 and ’16.Now he will try to help the Raiders.“Incognito is a great guy, super funny, really good personality http://www.panthersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-christian-miller-jersey ,” receiver Antonio Brown said. “Aggressive guy who loves the game of football. I think he’s coming in hungry and excited to be back out here.”The Raiders released guard Chaz Green to make room on the roster. FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — The Atlanta Falcons expect to have running back Devonta Freeman return for Sunday’s game at the Pittsburgh Steelers after missing three games with a sore right knee.Coach Dan Quinn said Freeman, the team’s leading rusher each of the last three years, would have full clearance “without any setbacks.”There was no report of a setback, but Freeman was listed as limited on the team’s practice report, just as he was late last week.Freeman was upbeat before the practice.“I feel really good,” Freeman said. “Coming back and doing something I really love to do is always a good time. I’m just excited to be back.”Freeman said he’s confident he is “comfortable enough to be back out there.”“I feel explosive and ready to run,” he said.Atlanta’s defense, meanwhile, has lost a fourth starter for at least one week. Quinn confirmed defensive tackle Grady Jarrett will be held out with an ankle sprain and knee injury he suffered late in last week’s 37-36 loss to Cincinnati .Quinn said Jack Crawford will start for Jarrett. Terrell McClain and rookie Deadrin Senat will have bigger roles.Defensive tackle Michael Bennett, who was signed on Tuesday after being cut by Jacksonville on Sept. 11, said he is “studying like crazy” to be ready for a backup role.“I plan to play, and they plan to play me,” Bennett said.The Falcons’ defense already has lost starting safeties Keanu Neal and Ricardo Allen to season-ending injuries and linebacker Deion Jones for at least eight weeks. Offensive guard Andy Levitre also is on IR.The Falcons (1-3) have lost two straight games, so the return of Freeman was embraced as rare positive news.“Free is chomping at the bit to get back and get going,” Quinn said, adding he hopes a full week of practice will enable Freeman to “feel like he can explode and do the things that he does in both the run game and pass game.“Man Jordan Scarlett Jersey , we’re pumped to have him back out there.”This is the second straight season Freeman has missed time with injuries. He missed two games in 2017 with a concussion, his second of the year, and was slowed by a right knee injury late in the season.After running for more than 1,000 yards in 2015 and 2016, Freeman finished with 865 yards rushing and seven touchdowns, along with 36 receptions, last season.Tevin Coleman and rookie Ito Smith combined to run for 86 yards against the Bengals. Quinn was not satisfied with the production of the ground game.“We definitely left some things out there in the run game, we felt, this past week,” Quinn said. “We challenged the offense. We think there’s a spot we can go to and we can be significantly better and the run game is one of those spots.”Atlanta running game also sputtered in a 43-37 overtime loss to New Orleans on Sept. 23. Coleman averaged only 2.2 yards per carry while being held to 33 yards.Freeman wouldn’t say he alone could jumpstart the running game.“I’m just coming in to do my part,” he said. “I just think we need to win. It’s not about individual stats or any of that.”NOTES: WR Julio Jones (hand, ankle), CB Justin Bethal (knee) and Jarrett were held out. Other players listed as limited: DE Vic Beasley Jr. (ankle), Coleman (shin), WR Mohamed Sanu (hip), DE Derrick Shelby (groin) and LB Foye Oluokun (ankle). Jones has missed practices each of the last two weeks before being removed from the injury report before games.
