Man in the Middle

3 of 3

While some fans seem to not want him in a Bengals uniform, trust me, you do not want him in a different one either. He still has a ton of potential and upside. He has not even came close to reaching his ceiling. There are other serviceable players out there. A potential replacement could already be on the roster, but Rey is a special player. He has game changing ability. Not every player is blessed with that potential. He has had a couple of hiccups in his career, but now is his time to shine. A healthy Maualuga will mean big things for the Bengals defense this season.

The Bengals would be wise to extend his contract before the season. It would be foolish to let him go now or to not re-sign him. Rey Maualuga is on the rise and should be rewarded as such. As he has already proven, he will only get better and more productive this season as he has done every other season. Add in the additions to the defensive line and the secondary and this is shaping up to be a breakout year for him. If he should get away, for any reason, it will be a big disappointment.
