Bengals released MLB Rey Maualuga.

The writing was on the wall after the Bengals signed Kevin Minter. Maualuga was a seven-year starter in Cincy, but injuries and ineffectiveness reduced him to a part-time role (326 snaps) in 2016. His release saves $3.75 million against the cap. Entering his age-30 season, Maualuga should resurface closer to the veteran minimum.
Mar 25 - 3:14 PM

Bengals MLB Rey Maualuga (leg) was back on the practice field Thursday.

It is a good sign after Maualuga got in a limited session Wednesday. Barring any setbacks, Maualuga should be able to return this week.

Bengals MLB Rey Maualuga (fibula) has been ruled out for Week 10 against the Giants.

This has been the expectation all week. Coach Marvin Lewis said the injury is "something he has been dealing with" and the team "wanted him to get it looked at further." It sounds like Maualuga could miss a couple games.

Bengals MLB Rey Maualuga (leg) is not expected to play Monday night against the Giants.

Maualuga suffered the injury before the bye against the Redskins, and he is still not able to go after the week off. Vincent Rey should see more snaps with Maualuga sidelined.

Bengals MLB Rey Maualuga (calf) has resumed practicing in full.

It appears Maualuga is ready to return after missing Week 9.
Thu, Nov 12, 2015 04:26:00 PM

Bengals declared MLB Rey Maualuga, WR Mario Alford, CB Chris Lewis-Harris, OT Andre Smith, TE C.J. Uzomah, DL Marcus Hardison and DL Pat Sims inactive for Week 9 against the Browns.

DE Carlos Dunlap (shoulder) is active. Smith is week to week with a concussion. DE Margus Hunt is active for the first time all season.

Bengals MLB Rey Maualuga was forced from Sunday's game with a right calf injury.

Maualuga went down early in the first quarter, and was deemed "doubtful" late in the half.
Sun, Nov 1, 2015 02:33:00 PM

Bengals re-signed MLB Rey Maualuga to a three-year, $15 million contract.

The word comes from in-house reporter Geoff Hobson. Maualuga is a thoroughly-mediocre player, but has been with the Bengals since 2009, and provides insurance for Vontaze Burfict (knee surgeries). A two-down run stopper, Maualuga piled up 59 tackles across 452 snaps last season.
Thu, Mar 5, 2015 03:44:00 PM

Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official website believes the team "covets" and would like to re-sign impending free agent MLB Rey Maualuga.

Maualuga is about as average a linebacker there is, but he's the captain of the defense and a physical two-down thumper. He won't break the bank, and the Bengals have plenty of cap room and like to keep their own players instead of wildly throwing money around in free agency. Look for Maualuga to return.

Bengals MLB Rey Maualuga was forced from Cincinnati's Wild Card game against the Colts with a hamstring injury, and will not return.

The sixth-year veteran was plagued by hamstring issues earlier this season, missing four games. He's highly unlikely to be ready should the Bengals advance to the Divisional Round. A two-down thumper, Maualuga was barely replacement level in 2014. He's headed to the open market.

Bengals MLB Rey Maualuga (hamstring) is not expected back for a few more weeks.

Maualuga suffered a severe pull in Week 6 against the Panthers, adding to the Bengals' decimation at linebacker. Backup Vinny Rey had 16 tackles against the Colts in Week 7.

Bengals MLB Rey Maualuga (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's Week 7 game against the Colts.

Maualuga pulled his hamstring in the Week 6 tie with the Panthers. He'll be replaced by Vinny Rey.
Sun, Oct 19, 2014 11:38:00 AM

Bengals MLB Rey Maualuga left Sunday's Week 6 tie with a hamstring injury and did not return.

Maualuga went down in the fourth quarter and then watched Emmanuel Lamur (shoulder) leave a little later. The severity of both injuries is unknown.
Mon, Oct 13, 2014 09:35:00 AM

According to Pro Football Focus, Bengals MLB Rey Maualuga missed 14.8 percent of his tackle opportunities in the 2013 regular season.

Maualuga missed on 13-of-88 tackle opportunities in 13 games. Only Mychal Kendricks (16.5) and Derrick Johnson (16.4) missed tackles at a greater clip among inside linebackers. One season removed from being PFF's lowest graded inside linebacker out of 53 qualifiers, Maualuga again proved to be a liability.
