Bengals Agree To Terms With OT Andre Smith
The Bengals have re-signed unrestricted free agent offensive tackle Andre Smith, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, minutes prior to the Cincinnati Bengals first second-round selection during the 2013 NFL draft.
After the Bengals used their franchise tag on defensive end Michael Johnson, re-signing Smith became a priority for the team, keeping the offensive line together, preventing the need for using a high draft picks on an offensive tackle, and successfully re-signing one of their own.
Smith, a first-round pick from the 2009 draft, taken at No. 6 overall by the Bengals, was the team's best overall offensive lineman in 2012, excelling not only as a run blocker but improving as a pass blocker. His growth over the last few years, when fans considered him a bust in 2009 and 2010 due to injury and work ethic questions, has vastly shifted into wide-spread support.
