Richie Incognito is moving with the Raiders to Las Vegas in 2020.

Oakland announced Monday it had signed the offensive lineman to a two-year contract extension after Fox Sports' Jay Glazer first reported the talks. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the agreement is worth $14 million with $6.35 million guaranteed.

The 36-year-old offensive guard arrived in Oakland on a one-year deal in May. He started 12 games for the 7-9 Raiders in 2019.

Incognito spent 2018 away from the NFL, after telling the Buffalo News' Vic Carucci in April that he was retiring from the league:

Vic Carucci @viccarucci

@68INCOGNITO just told me the following: "I'm, done. That's it. It's been a long career. Went to the doctor. My liver and kidneys are shutting down. The stress is killing me. It's just about doing what's right. I just want to be in the Hall of Fame." Full story to come.

Just two days after being released by the #Bills, Richie Incognito reportedly had the cops called on him in Florida today. He allegedly threw a dumbbell at another person: https://t.co/3BL4fouFud

Most notably, the four-time Pro Bowler was arrested in Aug. 2018 on charges of disorderly conduct and criminal threats after allegedly threatening to shoot staffers working at a mortuary in Arizona (h/t USA Today's A.J. Perez).

Incognito subsequently released a statement denying he made the threats and apologizing. He wrote, "I lost my cool with my father passing." In March 2019, Incognito pled guilty to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge.

The incident resulted in the NFL handing Incognito a two-game suspension to start the 2019 season for "violating the personal conduct policy."

Prior to joining the Raiders, Incognito played from 2015-17 with the Buffalo Bills. His tenure in Buffalo, which saw him earn three Pro Bowl nods, came after he was involved in a bullying scandal with the Miami Dolphins that necessitated an internal investigation by the NFL. Incognito spent 2014 without a team.

Now, he has a home with the Raiders for at least two more years.
