Bengals, Andre Smith talk reunion

Andre Smith may return to the team that drafted him.

Smith, an offensive tackle selected by the Bengals with the sixth overall pick in the 2009 NFL draft, is visiting Cincinnati, according to multiple reports.

The 30-year-old Smith played in Cincinnati through 2015 before signing a one-year contract with the Vikings last year. He started the first four games of the season for the Vikings last year before suffering a season-ending triceps injury. Smith won’t be back with the Vikings, who have added offensive tackles Mike Remmers and Riley Reiff in free agency.

The Bengals lost left tackle Andrew Whitworth in free agency, so Smith could help fill in there. Smith has also drawn interest from the Bills.

Smith is the No. 97 player in our Free Agent Hot 100.

    Smith was terrible in Minny last year; but even that will be an upgrade over Ogbuehi @ RT……

    Kevin Huber is sure gonna be busy next year.

    Hope Dalton has good injury insurance; he’s sure gonna need it…….

    Now that all the best players are off the free agency board, the Bengals rise from their usual cheapskate slumber to pick over the schlubs in the bargain bin.

    The Bengals are going to play Ogbuehi at LT, because he was so awesome at RT that he got benched for Eric Winston, so obviously you let him protect the franchise QB’s blindside.

    Ogbuhei is and has always been a LT, he was playing out of position at RT. that said, I’m terrified about how that will go. I would be in support of bringing Andre back and letting him compete for RT. Maybe put Fisher at RG to fill in for Zeitler.
