Bengals Minicamp: Andre Smith Missing on Day 1


 

After he missed all of OTAs, Marvin Lewis said he expected RT Andre Smith to attend the mandatory mini-camps starting today.

As you may have guessed by the title, he’s not there.

The Cincinnati Bengals shared the fact on twitter this morning, saying:

“Andre Smith is not at today’s mandatory mini-camp after missing all of OTAs. Coach Lewis to address more at press conf.”

Smith was recently signed to a 3-year, $18 million deal, following an impressive showing in his contract year.

That’s a lot of money. Whether Smith’s reasoning for not being there today is sufficient or not, I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
