Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Yannick Ngakoue took to Twitter on Sunday night, hours after his team’s AFC wild-card win over the Buffalo Bills, to both shout out the team’s city and its fans and also to quite casually accuse Bills’ guard Richie Incognito of using racial slurs toward him on the field:
Great win to day! And 64, you goin have to come harder than some weak racist slurs. I’m proud of my African heritage, as are 70% of the other Black players in this league. #Iaintjonathanmartin!

“Great win today!,” Ngakoue wrote. “And 64, you goin to have to come harder than some weak racist slurs. I’m proud of my African heritage, as are 70% of the other Black players in this league. #Iaintjonathanmartin”
No. 64 for Buffalo is Incognito, and Ngakoue’s hashtag refers to Jonathan Martin, the player Incognito was accused of bullying while both were members of the Miami Dolphins. His bullying also included racial slurs, such as allegedly calling the mixed-race Martin a “half-n****r,” among other things.
Incognito was suspended by Miami for the final eight games of the 2013 season, and did not play anywhere in 2014. The Bills signed him in 2015.
As of this writing, there has not been a response from Incognito to Ngakoue’s accusation.
