Ochocinco says Andre Smith has signed

Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco, calling himself “the new source,” claims on his Twitter page that tackle Andre Smith, the sixth overall pick in the 2009 draft, finally has signed a contract.

Here’s the full text of Chad’s tweet.  “Attention: 1st rd. Pick Andre Smith has signed, the new source = Ocho Cinco, not ESPN, thank you, stay tuned for more info.

Trey Wingo of ESPN responded to Ochocinco’s scoop by saying “way to be a jerk about it.”  (Said Chad in response, “I didn’t complain when you were ripping me on TV, I didn’t call you a jerk, I took and just child pleased the situation.”)

Meanwhile, Smith’s agent, Alvin Keels, has since posted a new tweet unrelated to Smith’s status.

So, like Chad said, stay tuned.

UPDATE:  A league source says that, at a minimum, a deal for Smith is close, and that “it won’t be a good one” for the player.  The sense is that, if/when a deal gets done, the player will be caving to the team, since the player needs the cash.

SECOND UPDATE:  There’s no deal yet.

    Parents keep children away from computers for a reason.
    I guess Chad Johnson doesn’t have any.

    Trey Wingo in “Cry Me A River” Shocker.
    Seriously the only jerk in all of this is Trey Wingo having a big ass cry because he wasnt able to break the news. Oh hang on did you just realise that you get paid big money to simply talk Sh1T and Ocho even stopped you from doing that.
    Seriously Wingo Child Please !
    Adam Scheffter took it the way it should have been and made a joke of it on Twitter.

    Trey Wingo isn’t a name, it is something you order at BW3.
    I used to hate Ocho’s antics but compared to some of the true tools of the profession, he’s just clean fun.
