Incognito sorry for calling Zimmer 'a F------ LIAR'

Over the past four months, the former Bills offensive lineman has constantly been in the headlines. "I put enough work and enough time into my craft over the time that I was out, so I'm a thousand-percent confident and I'm ready to play".

The 35-year-old is back on the free-agent market after the Bills released him in May.

Incognito told TMZ he's now training five days a week and has taken calls from the Vikings and Seattle. I'm a free agent and that's it.

Former Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Richie Incognito spoke out publicly last week, expressing his desire to return to the National Football League and said that he received calls from both the Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks expressing interest of bringing him in this season. I've had calls from Minnesota, Seattle. Zimmer on Tuesday denied that being the case with Minnesota. "I really just don't want to go to training camp, so we'll see".

"I'm a thousand-percent confident in what I got going", Cook assured NFL Network's Stacey Dales on Wednesday's edition of NFL Total Access.

"No interest, and totally false".

That's a pretty harsh tweet considering it's coming from someone who was just named the leader of an anti-bullying campaign in July. Incognito wrote in tweets recorded by Yahoo Sports.

His beloved grandfather, Bob Julius, and most of his mother's side of the family was raised in the St. Tiger Woods is ranked 51st in the world, but is playing better than some may have imagined.

After hearing Zimmer's words on Tuesday, Incognito called him a "f***ing liar".

In the texts with "Coach", Incognito says, "You know I would love play for you". Sparano died unexpectedly on July 22 of heart disease. However, that's definitely not what happened.

Incognito proceeded to tweet screenshots of what he said were texts between himself and Sparano.

The screen grabs on Incognito's Twitter account, @68INCOGNITO, do not offer any evidence of Sparano recruiting Incognito, or even interest in him playing for the Vikings, but merely show communication related to workouts and some casual comments.

The final problem for Incognito is that if he can't land a job with the Vikings, he's going to have trouble landing a job with anyone.

The Vikings are without three of their regular starters on the offensive line due to injuries, and it's not clear when they will return. As things now stand, Incognito's best chance of finding a job will probably come if a team suffers a season-ending injury on the line before the end of training camp.
