Rivers was most likely a Mike Brown pick. I remember Marvin not looking too happy in the post pick press conference. Rumors were flying that he wanted to trade up and get Dorsey or Ellis because of our need at DT. Mike was content on just sitting there. Rivers was just BPA at that point, but that 08 draft was just awful overall.

It shouldn't be too difficult to find one in free agency or the draft. Personally I hope they cut him as soon as they are able to so that will be forced to find an upgrade. Otherwise if not, they won't feel the need to while he is on the roster.

What does this mean for Burfict? Does he stay at WLB? If so, do we resign Howard? Howard was our best LB last season and should be playing WLB IMO. Does moving Burfict to SAM make any sense at all? That is the only solution that I see in which Howard makes it back on the field with Burfict.

I just canít imagine Maualuga not returning and being our starting MLB for the next 4 years after he was given the Captain title. Please tell me I am wrong!!!
Thats an interesting dilemma for the Bengals.I have Burfict in the middle and Howard coming back strong in his regular spot.

While you are releasing Rey, how about letting Geathers go. Here are some very interesting salary numbers.
Geathers 6 yr/33,750,000 salary.
Dunlap 4 yr/3,659,000
Atkins 4yr/2,262,450 (Back to Back Pro Bowls)

Im still trying to figure out why Geathers was starting over Dunlap. I believe it was salary not ability.
Dont let Dunlap or Atkins get away like J Joe did.

Forty,, they can't trade him, he's a free agent. He no longer has a contract with the Bengals. When free agency starts he can sign with who ever offers him the most money.

Nothing we didn't already know, not sure if this has been posted. Pretty pathetic when you see it in black and white.

Rey Maualuga isn’t sure the Cincinnati Bengals see him in their future plans and while some of that is thanks to the emergence of Vontze Burfict, it’s more about his mental stability.
If Maualuga plans on staying he needs to focus less on what fans and media say about him.

According to Pro Football Focus, of the 35 inside linebackers who played 50 percent or more of their team’s snaps, Maualuga graded the worst. He was the worst in pass coverage, 26th against the run and second worst in effect that his penalties had on the defense. His 16 missed tackles tied for fifth worst.

In their grading, 12 of the 17 games had a grade worse than negative one. None graded as a positive one or better. In the PFF grading, anything above a one is above average and anything below a one is below average.

According to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Maualuga isn’t sure the Bengals see him in their future plans.
Despite playing all 16 games for the Bengals and having his most productive tackling season of his career (122 tackles on the season), Maualuga experienced difficult in pass coverage and had his share of missed tackles as well.

“I felt as if the playoff game (against Houston) was sort of like, if I perform well they would want me. I don’t know if they want me, but I do know I didn’t perform well,” Maualuga said. “…I really don’t know if they want me back.”

Maualuga will be an unrestricted free agent and odds are he won’t be re-signing with the Bengals.

One would hope that having your opponent in the playoffs specifically game plan to attack Maualuga because they know he is a total liability in coverage would finally get Marvin and Mike to understand that we need better options.

Did you watch Rey play at all this season? Are you oblivious to how awful he is? They gave him the C to try and motivate him to play better, but that didnt work.

Didnt see the point creating a new thread about Rey, but here is some more info on him.

https://www.profootballfocus.com/blo...d-linebackers/

He was second worst Linebacker in the entire NFL at allowing first downs and TD's.

35 First downs and 2 TD's. He was beaten 6.89% of the time.

London Fletcher was #1 with 33 First downs and 5 TD's.

PS. Would also like to point out that Nick Roach for the Bears gave up a combined total of 9 First downs and TD's on 331 snaps as a SLB. He is a free agent.

Wow, I wouldn't have guessed that. He is 37 years old though.

Rey was bad. Lawson was worse. burfict howard. we need another linebacker. Rey is bad hes not as bad as statistics suggest. he had an awful end of the season and a bad beginning. He was ok games 5 - 12. Lawson didnt have a decent game all season. Skuta played worse than any linebacker the limited snaps he played.

PFF claims to know more than they possibly could. Ijs. But yes, Rey stinks.

Stats actually say he did well until you look closely at them. 62 solo tackles in a season. Hell ray Lewis (deer boy) had 57 solo before his injury and missed a bunch of games.
