Bengals Hope To Re-Sign OT Andre Smith Before NFL Draft
The Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to a two-year contract with free-agent linebacker James Harrison, but he isn't the only veteran on Cincinnati's radar.
Joe Reedy of The Cincinnati Enquirer reported Friday that Bengals coach Marvin Lewis hopes to have free-agent offensive tackle Andre Smith re-signed before Thursday's 2013 NFL Draft.
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport told Around the League that there hasn't been additional movement between the sides. But the fact that Lewis anticipates a contract indicates how necessary it is to have the situation wrapped up prior to the draft. Lewis will need to know whether or not the Bengals should draft a right tackle.
"We're getting down to the time of that because we feel it's important," Lewis told Reedy. "He wants to get it done but he has to get his representation and our people to come to an agreement. He's anxious for it to occur, and hopefully it happens quickly. Everyone realizes when we get into the draft it becomes a different situation."
