A report Monday night says the NFL has concluded it’s investigation of Bills OL Richie Incognito and whether, he used racial slurs towards Jaguars DL Yannick Ngakoue during the AFC Wildcard Game on January 7th. And apparently, has found no proof and will do nothing.

Longtime Buffalo Bills writer/insider Vic Carucci had the story first:

As we wrote then, Ngakoue claimed, and still stands by, that Incognito was slurring his African heritage during the Jaguars 10-3 win at Everbank Field.

The Bills acknowledged that week that Incognito was being investigated by the league with possible suspension looming for him, again. He had previously been suspended in 2013, while playing for the Dolphins for his treatment of teammate Jonathan Martin, who alleged mental abuse and racial taunting.

Martin also had actual text messages from Incognito backing his claims.

There apparently was no such “smoking gun” in this case.

It is interesting that Incognito plans to speak publicly about the accusation by Ngakoue at the Pro Bowl in Orlando this week. This is because on Monday afternoon, Ngakoue was added to the AFC team, as a replacement, and will now be Incognito’s teammate in the All-Star Game to be played Sunday Night.

We obviously will want to hear more from Ngakoue, as well.
