According to Adam Caplan of TheSidelineView.com, the Cincinnati Bengals will likely pass on re-signing linebacker Rey Maualuga. Maualuga played in a career-high 1025 snaps during the 2012 season, but struggled with game-to-game consistency. The former second-round pick out of the 2009 NFL Draft started all 16 regular season games for the first time in his career. With Maualuga likely gone, the team is expected to move second-year LB Vontaze Burfict to the middle. Burfict not only made the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, he won the starting WLB job as a rookie. Burifct, who was not drafted, wound up starting 14 games and participated in 886 snaps last season. The 26 year-old Maualuga should draw plenty of interest in free agency.  There will be at least a few teams that believe they can get the most out of him.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script'...

Draft Strategy: Running Backs

Another position headed for an overhaul is the running backs. Only BJGE and Dan Herron are signed with them team past March 11. With the rest as free agents, now is a perfect time to reshape a position that has been a significant culprit in the under-performing offense. We know that BJGE will be back in 2013. But the guy who was supposed to switch off with him, Bernard Scott, will...

Draft Strategy: Secondary

When is the last time you can remember the Bengals having a formidable secondary? Not just good corners (Joseph/Hall), but an entire secondary? It’s been a while. You might cite the ’05 team that generated turnovers at a prolific rate, but I could also argue that their steep decline in ’06 indicated that they were more opportunistic that year than daunting. After faltering...
