Former Buffalo Bills guard Richie Incognito was named as the "first national ambassador" for Boo2Bullying, an anti-bullying non-profit group based on Los Angeles, on Friday, according to ESPN's Mike Rodak.

Incognito spent 2014 out of football after being involved in a bullying scandal with the Miami Dolphins the year prior. He and two other Dolphins players were found to have "pattern of harassment" against then-Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin.

The 35-year-old - who will be introduced at an event later this month - said he can "personally relate to it from both sides - being bullied and being accused of being a bully" and called the issue a "national crisis."

Incognito spent three days in a mental hospital in June following an altercation with another man at a Florida gym in May. He's currently a free agent after a bizarre back-and-forth with the Bills in which he asked to be placed on retired/reserved list before almost immediately changing his mind. The Bills then granted the guard's request to be released after he refused to attend voluntary camp.
