Adam Caplan reports that the Bengals are on the trail of former Cleveland Browns tight end Alex Smith. Veteran FB/TE Alex Smith’s visit with the Bengals is scheduled for today. — Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) April 10, 2013 The summation for Alex Smith’s time in Cleveland for me is probably that he was better than I ever thought he would be. Nobody will ever forget the time the Browns handed the ball off to him, but I think most put that on Shurmur. In the end, Smith was a high energy player for the Browns with a zeal for blocking and better hands than many of us expected. In the end, Smith played 28 games for the Browns receiving 28 passes for 184 yards and 1 TD. The Browns currently have five tight ends on the official roster in Jordan Cameron, Gary Barnidge, Kellen Davis, Dan Gronkowski, and Brad Smelley. It wouldn’t surprise most if the Browns took another tight end in the draft. [Related: Raiders sign former Browns safety Usama Young]

As the highest-paid player on the Browns, is Joe Thomas’ value diminishing?
