Andre Smith is another big time upcoming free agent this offseason. Smith’s the anchor of what teams like the Cowboys and NY Giants regarded as “the best O-line in football”.  Smith is 6 ‘4’ 335 Lbs. and 25 entering the prime of his NFL career. Smith is a force to be reckoned with in the run game. Smith can also use his size and ability to move his feet to neutralize speed rushers. Overall Smith has become one of the best tackles in the game right now and letting him go would be disastrous to an already mediocre Bengals offense. If the Bengals want any hopes of keeping Smith in town. Mike Brown must blow the cob webs out of his wallet and give smith the payday he has earned.


After last Saturday’s embarrassing Wild Card performance, The Bengals displayed yet again, that they were clearly in a class below the elite teams in the NFL.  If they want to prove they belong in that class next year, they must start with resigning their home grown talent.
