Cincinnati Bengals waive veteran offensive lineman, sign tight end

The Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday waived veteran offensive tackle Andre Smith.

Smith played in six games this season, with five starts at left tackle. An 11th-year player, he was a first-round pick by the Bengals in 2009 and re-joined the team this summer as a free agent. Smith played in 109 career games for the Bengals, with 90 starts.

The Bengals signed tight end Mason Schreck off the practice squad to take Smith’s spot on the roster. A seventh-round pick by the Bengals in 2017, Schreck was limited to just six games in his first two seasons. He spent the first 11 games of this season on the practice squad.
