Stacy Dewayne Andrews (born June 2, 1981) is an American football offensive guard who is currently a free agent in the National Football League. He was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the fourth round of the 2004 NFL Draft. He played college football at Ole Miss.
Andrews attended Camden Fairview High School.
While at Ole Miss, Andrews competed for the Rebels track and field team as a thrower. He never competed in football until his senior year at the University of Mississippi. He was drafted in the 2004 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals.
Andrews played in every game during the 2006 and 2007 seasons. During the 2007 season, Andrews started three games at left guard before starting the final eleven games of the season at right tackle, filling in for injured starter Willie Anderson. Because of his versatility and effectiveness, the Bengals placed the franchise tag on Andrews on February 18, 2008, despite the fact that Andrews did not officially have a starting job on the Bengals line. Andrews signed his one-year, $7.455 million tender on March 19. He tore his right anterior cruciate ligament in week 16 against the Cleveland Browns.
Andrews signed a six-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles on February 27, 2009. The move united him with his brother, Shawn Andrews, who was an offensive lineman for the Eagles at the time. The Andrews brothers did not play together, however, because Shawn Andrews was injured throughout the entire season, and was eventually released on March 17, 2010.
In week 2 of the 2009 season, Stacy Andrews was benched in favor of Max Jean-Gilles due to his knee injury from the previous season and his need for more practice with offensive line coach Juan Castillo on his pass-blocking.
In March 2010, Andrews agreed to restructure his contract, reducing his base salary.
New York Giants
On August 3, 2011, Andrews signed with the New York Giants. In week 13 of the 2011 NFL season, Stacy did not play against the Green Bay Packers after he was hospitalized for pulmonary embolisms in both lungs. He became a free agent after the season.
