Per Muckraker Mike, currently back crashing on the couch at NBC after the PFT server blew up yet again, OT Andre Smith will sign with Rick Smith of Priority Sports.
Andre cashiered his previous agent, who has been widely blamed for his nightmare combine and pro day performances, last week.
Priority would be an ironic choice should the Bengals draft Smith this weekend, as the agency negotiated Levi Jones’ $40 million extension in 2006. But at least that gives them some experience dealing with Cincinnati’s quirky front office.
Update 4/22: Sports Business Daily confirms that Smith is now a Priority client. The National Football Post’s Michael Lombardi believes the move has salvaged Smith’s stock and that he could now go as high as second overall to the Rams.
