Offensive lineman and noted racist bully Richie Incognito—who has since the end of the last NFL season retired, un-retired, been released by the Bills, and had a public meltdown at a gym—got very upset on Twitter today because Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer denied that Minnesota was interested in signing him.
