Lewis Hopeful Bengals Ink Andre Smith Before The Draft

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis sounded suddenly upbeat about signing right tackle Andre Smith before the draft when he held his pre-draft news conference Tuesday, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

“I’m hopeful we can get a solution prior to (Thursday’s) draft. I know Andre would like to get it done,” Lewis said. “I think he’d feel better about things so he doesn’t get lost without a chair.”

Asked to put it in weather report terms, Lewis smiled and said, “The sun is emerging maybe.”

Smith has yet to gather any interest on the free-agent market.
