He committed 11 personal fouls in his four seasons with the Rams. His tenure ended when he was flagged for two personal fouls and had a sideline confrontation with Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo in one game.
"There's a fine line, especially when you play offensive line," Incognito told Darlington. "You're coached to play through the whistle, and I've always been toeing that line. Always over and back.
