Bengals offensive tackle Andre Smith says he is sick of being mediocre

Cincinnati Bengals right tackle Andre Smith was drafted in the first round, but the former Alabama offensive tackle says he feels better than he did in Alabama. He has lost 23 pounds after suffering a season ending torn tricep. 

“I feel like; better than I did when I was a rookie coming out of ‘Bama,” Smith said with a smile. “That’s what I feel like. In ’08. So I feel really good. I went back some time I know, right?”

“I do feel fresh,” he said. “I got a year off to prepare my body, get better mentally, physically, get in great shape, stay in shape and be out there with my teammates now and do what I’m supposed to do.”

And what he wants to do is be the best right tackle in the NFL.

“That’s my motivation,” he said. “I’m tired of being mediocre.”
