Report: Andre Smith weighs 370

There couldn’t possibly have been more weight-related red flags surrounding former Alabama offensive tackle Andre Smith entering last year’s draft, but the Bengals used the sixth overall pick on him anyway.  To the Bengals’ credit, they inserted language into Smith’s contract that would protect them against his lack of passion for conditioning.  The team is off the hook for half of Smith’s weekly game check any time he reports heavier than 350 pounds.

According to Pete Prisco of CBS Sports, “word is” Smith currently weighs 370.
Mike Florio passed along “concerns regarding [Smith’s] conditioning” in a Thursday post, based on a report from SI’s Peter King.  Smith underwent foot surgery in February, and wasn’t medically cleared to practice four months later at minicamp.  The status of his rehab remains uncertain.
It’s also unclear how Smith plans to shed the weight when he — presumably — can’t run.  We suppose he could just stop eating altogether.  
But that, um, seems unlikely.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    1 Bowel movement should put him
    at or around 350lbs

  2. forget starcaps this dude needs mooncaps. how can someone eat so dam much. they should wire his jaw shut

  3. “The only worry I have with Smith is that he’s such a natural talent that he hasn’t had to work for it up to this point. I mean, look at that picture, his tits and belly button look like Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” “

  4. We all knew this guy would be a bust. He and Dez Bryant both have BUST written all over them and we all knew it!!!

  5. So the Bengals have Ochocino,T.O.,Pacman,Tank Johnson,Cedric Benson,Andre Smith,and Matt Jones….damn talk about me first group…not to lump Andre Smith with the character issue folk but I can see him being a malcontent at some time…370 lbs.!!!!!…this guy will be an expensive oxygen sucking machine.
    How can all these egos coexist?…this will be fun watching this debacle.

  6. Never was excited about this draft pick last year. It was definetely a Mike Brown pick and not the coaching staff. Unfortunatly this happens alot…….Jerome Simpson is just another example of it.

  7. Heck, even the Geno Atkins diet would be good for him right now!
    Hey Florio, when does it start to make economic sense for my Bengals to cut this joker loose?

  8. “Andre Smith weighs 370”
    That is still 25 pounds less than the average Steeler nation female, and 40 pounds less than the average Pittsburgh female resident.

  9. I’m gonna eat $35 worth of McDonald’s today because I will start working out tomorrow…..
    I can hear him saying it, and I can hear him eating it.

  10. Dear Jags,
    You are an awful team with one good player (MJD)
    Signed,
    The AFCN Champion Bengals

  11. The “reporting” here cracks me up. Some guy on the sideline simply said he looks like he weighs 370, and now that is breaking news.
    haha. Andre is a fatty, we all know this.

  12. Wonder who would win in an Oklahoma drill between Andre and Terrence Cody?
    What’s the Alabama Drill – a hot dog eating contest?!?

  13. Can you say Jamarcus Smith?
    370lbs?
    Is he going to eat his way out of the league too ?

    “Dear Bengals,
    Thanks for passing on E. Monroe.
    signed The Jags.”
    Dear Jags,
    Thanks for taking Matt Jones, Marcus Stroud, Reggie Williams, Marcedes Lewis, Derrick Harvey and Tyson Alualu before any of the rest of us could possibly make the same horrible mistake.
    Regards,
    The Other 31 Teams

  15. saw whatcha want Bungle lovers….Steelers would not even blow a 4th round pick on a clown with these kinds of red flags

  16. Dear Jags,
    Thanks for taking Matt Jones, Marcus Stroud, Reggie Williams, Marcedes Lewis, Derrick Harvey and Tyson Alualu before any of the rest of us could possibly make the same horrible mistake.

    Dear Jags
    Thank you for giving us hope that we’ll have a football team sooner rather then later.
    Love,
    Los Angeles

  18. Game checks….he planned to use training camp to get himself payed whether he played or not…………..now your right he has a problem but I bet the scale says 349 by sept 12th…………

  19. His foot is no excuse. He can get in a pool, walk or if he can’t walk, swim in place treading water (expecting joke on that one) and burn up a lot of calories that way.

  20. @WhoDeyRey – Thank you for not being the typical message board apologist. It is nice to see a real fan who understands the game & the fact that unfortunately, every team in the NFL has its flaws & games need to be played before a winner is declared. Unfortunately, I hope you have a miserable time watching your team this season for the obvious reason of me being a Browns fan… lol
    @WhoDeyTN – Is it worth bragging about the AFCN title when A) You get nothing for it & B) You lose to a 9-7 team that barely made it in? Also, if your only comment is “We know Smith is a fatty”. That fatty is supposed to protect your already petrified QB from taking another hit like he did a while back. If he can’t get rid of the ball because of a bad line then your solid WR corps look more like Jerome Simpson, Darrin Chivarini, & Rosanne Barr! Simply put, it is a problem, just like the ones going on in Baltimore & the ones in Pissburg!

  21. The threat of losing HALF his income isn’t motivation enough for this guy to take some kind of precautionary measures with his weight? Maybe he’d hire a nutritionist, maybe develop a diet? The guy sounds like a lost cause to me…

  22. Folks who actually went to watch training camp say that Andre was working out on the side and they were working him hard. A 20 pound loss is not that big of a deal, and I really thought it was much worse from what PFT was reporting. He is expected to be ready for the start of the season, but has to compete for a starting job, which is fair. This is not nearly as bad as PFT (which we all know SHOULD stand for Pittsburgh Football Talk) is pretending.

  23. Umm … Marcus Stroud in his prime would WRECK YOUR S****
    Marcedes would crash your mommas honda.
    Tyson has yet to play a down in the NFL.
    But yeah, MJ and RW were awful.
    signed,
    This “Signing” Thing is Queer

  24. For the record, Alabama is out of fattys now. Not that I wouldn’t take another 370lb nose tackle in a heartbeat.

  25. How in the hell does Marvin Lewis still have a job……this team in basically the Jersey Shore. MTV show…NFL version…..just a bunch of fat ass overpaid whores…..Ocho,TO.Tank.Pac, and this fat ass who cant walk without busting a knee or ankle, hell…i’m no steelers or ravens fan , but if you think they can beat either of those teams. bet the mortgage on it, and i will rent you a trailer……

  26. Ok, we with intellect know he has a problem in this area, not unlike issues we have. I hope he makes it, otherwise this Country haas another unemployed possibly seeking food stamps and being a drag on us.

    Put a healthy Troy Polamalu and Aaron Smith back on the field and that makes you an 8-8 team. And out of the playoffs. You’re “success” was largely due to our losses. (and the Ravens).

  28. # of Jags Super Bowls ?
    # of Bungles Super Bowls ?
    Go have a division girl slapping party somewhere else.

  29. The bengals should hire jamarcus as his life training partner. any time smith goes near a burger, jamarcus would snarf it before he had the chance.

  30. Blitzburgh says “Your success was due to our losses (and the Ravens).”
    Umm, Blitzburgh, 2 of your losses were to the Bengals! 2 of the Ravens losses were to the Bengals! We swept the division. So yeah, our success was due to the losses we handed you.

    HA HA HA so your excuse next year is “If Ben wasn’t a rapist, and Jerome Bettis was still playing…”
    Idiot yes.

    So then, by your logic, the only reason your pansy ass team even made it out of the first round of the ’05 playoffs was because Kimo von Oelhoffen targeted Palmer’s knee. And you still almost got your collective ass handed to you by, wait for it, Jon Kitna, of all people.

  34. So when they were saying that Andre would lead the league in pancakes, this is not exactly what I had in mind. That a guy who wasn’t even drafted in ’06 can be beating him out (apparenlty handily) for the starting RT job is all the statement you need about this kid. Thank God Roland has stepped up the way he has. Big heart trumps big stomach.
