Report: Andre Smith to Sign With Priority Sports

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.

    Funny how Flori kept talking about getting ready for the draft and BOOM! The hampsters were found for miles after that one….and the traffic hasn’t even gotten up there yet! I digress….

    So, let me get this right. I am hearing just now that Andre’s old agent has been “widely blamed” for his fiasco’s at the combine and pro “belly flab” day?
    First I have heard of it.

    I still think this is where the bengals will find themselves when ready for #6…unless they actually move the unmovable hanging chad.

    I don’t object to Andre. Plug him in at RT and they’re set for a decade — as long as they realize that at least early on they are going go have to pay extra attention to him.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s higher than Monroe on their board. At the very least, my guess is that Andre is no lower than 5th, behind Curry, Crabtree, Monroe, and Raji. But we’ll see Saturday.
