In a quiet move, the Bengals brought back the maligned Taylor Mays. It may split the fan base down the middle, but the fact of the matter is Mays was much better on the field when he assumed a hybrid role last season and dabble at the linebacker position in certain packages.

CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora broke the news:

Mays in no way prohibits the team from drafting a safety this year, and he will in no way push for the starting job next to Reggie Nelson. But he is a quality player on special teams who has his uses in a tweener role, so this is one of the best moves the tem could have made this offseason.
