Richie Incognito is again accused of misconduct by another NFL player. 

After the Bills lost to Jacksonville in the Wild Card round Sunday, Jags defensive tackle Yannick Ngakoue tweeted that Incognito used a racial slur towards him during the game. 

“64, you goin have to come harder than some weak racist slurs,” Ngakoue posted Sunday night. “I’m proud of my African heritage, as are 70% of the other Black players in this league.”

Ngakoue finished the tweet with the hashtag “I aint Jonathan Martin.”

The hashtag is a reference to the bullying scandal that got Incognito released from the Dolphins in 2013 and left him shunned from football for the 2014 season. 

Incognito signed with the Bills under Rex Ryan in 2015 and has been a model citizen in Buffalo, even developing into a team leader. 

Incognito and the Bills had no comment as of late Sunday. Players will be available to the media Monday morning for locker clean out day as the Bills head into the offseason.
