Andrews Snubbed the Bengals

Cincinnati Benagals head coach Marvin Lewis said the team was surprised when offensive tackle Stacy Andrews signed a free-agent deal with the Philadelphia Eagles, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

According to Lewis, the Bengals believed they had a deal done with Andrews when be backed out, packed up and headed to Philadelphia to play on the same team with his older brother, Shaun Andrews, a two-time Pro Bowl guard with the Eagles.

"I was surprised because he led us to believe differently," Lewis said. "I was disappointed because Stacy led us to believe that he wanted to stay [in Cincinnati], so it was up to his representative to get a contract done. We felt like we had a deal done and then, all of a sudden, he walked away and that disappointed me."
