The OCNN is right again.
Though receiver Chad Ochocinco’s Twitter message suggests that defensive tackle Shaun Smith already has re-signed with the Bengals, he hasn’t.
But he will.
Per a league source, Smith will sign with the Bengals on Wednesday.
He spent two seasons and part of another with the Bengals, from 2004 and 2006.
We’re also told that Smith laid the foundation for his returning by calling coach Marvin Lewis and apologizing for past issues between the two men. We’re also told that Smith recently called former Browns G.M. George Kokinis and apologized for the incident that occurred between the two men at a Lions-Brown preseason game, after Smith signed with Detroit after being cut by the Browns.
