Now, Peter King with Sports Illustrated writes that he spoke with several teams who are scared of signing Smith:

I think Cincinnati tackle Andre Smith should come with a warning label. Something like, “Huge money is hazardous to this player’s greatness.” Talked to several teams scared of Smith. They remember his weight problems early in his Cincinnati tenure, and they fear what a big signing bonus would do to his desire.


If these sentiments are held by every potential suitor for Smith, than the Bengals could end up re-signing to a very manageable deal. Smith is thought to be seeking a deal that pays him around $9 million per year, according to Don’t expect the Bengals to pony up that kind of money with impending extensions coming for Geno Atkins, Andy Dalton, and A.J. Green in the coming years, who are of a higher priority to the Bengals than Smith is.
