Tim Benz: Antonio Brown could get another clown in the Raiders circus
If there is truly a God above, this will happen.
Just for the sake of our entertainment.
The NFL Network reported the Raiders are working out free agent offensive lineman Richie Incognito.
Here’s an interesting one. The #Raiders are working out free agent G Richie Incognito today, sources say. Incognito didn’t play last season after he retired, un-retired and then was cut by the #Bills. But word is he’s in shape and feeling well in all aspects. Wants to play again.

Yes, those Raiders. And, yes, that Richie Incognito.
They of Jon Gruden, Antonio Brown and Vontaze Burfict.
Not to mention accusations of racial slurs, spitting on opponents and causing fights with teammates and opponents.
Oh, and then there was the small matter of the Jonathan Martin bullying incident.
Aside from that stuff, he’s been a model citizen.
Incognito left Oakland’s facility without a contract yesterday, but the Mercury News reports a deal remains a possibility.
If Incognito is on the opposite side of the line from Burfict, can you imagine what these training camp practices will look like?
The Raiders shouldn’t bother to bring in their own officiating crew like most teams. They should hire the security guards from “The Jerry Springer Show.”
It feels like the Raiders are actively campaigning to be on the next season of “Hard Knocks.” Guys! You can stop now. You win. You had us at A.B. plus Vontaze.
And bless you for it.
HBO is going to love you guys. I’m sure they were worried about people canceling subscriptions after “Game of Thrones” ends.
But this show is going to be way better! Although, I fear it may be more violent than “The Red Wedding” episode.
What are Gruden and Mike Mayock thinking? Why sign Antonio Brown away from a circus in Pittsburgh then assemble a new cast of clowns around him?
Brown deserves this. The Raiders deserve whatever they get. And the fan bases of every other team deserve the good laugh they are about to enjoy.
Brown at least brings football value. At this point in their careers, Incognito and Burfict bring only baggage.
It’s almost as if the Raiders are more concerned with rebuilding their renegade image than they are resurrecting a Super Bowl championship franchise.
If Brown is the gasoline and Burfict is the match, consider Incognito a large field of dry brush.
I just hope it doesn’t burn before the HBO camera crew gets there.
