The Bengals reached agreement with right tackle Andre Smith on a new contract Friday night, the final step toward bringing back their offense intact from last season.

Smith had been an unrestricted free agent. He says the team changed its offer, and he decided it was time to make a decision. He accepted a three-year deal.

The agreement gave the Bengals freedom to look at other spots in the draft rather than having to worry about replacing Smith, who was a first-round pick in 2009. He was hurt his first two seasons, but lost a lot of weight and became a steady starter the last two years.
