28-year old safety Reggie Nelson is having by far the best year of his NFL career in 2011.  Nelson has played in 9 games for the Bengals so far this year and he has 55 tackles, 1 sack, 2 forced fumbles, 1 interception (he returned it 75 yards for a TD), 6 passes defensed and 1 tackle for a loss.  He has now played in 25 games in his first two years with the Bengals and he has 109 tackles, 13 passes defensed, 3 interceptions (one returned for a TD), 1 sack, 4 forced fumbles and 1 tackle for a loss.  Nelson is playing like the player the Jaguars thought they were getting when they drafted him in the first round a few years ago.  The Bengals need him to keep up the good work, especially since they have lost CB Leon Hall for the year.
