“Football has taught me a strong work ethic, a willing to get better every day and a desire to continue growing. It has taught me that while what you get is important, who you become is more important. All of these lessons I'll take with me into the next chapter. Because today, I'm officially retiring from the NFL.” – Former Raiders left guard Richie Incognito.
