The Bengals have promoted Vincent Rey into the starting lineup at strong-side linebacker, replacing Emmanuel Lamur.
Rey has been running with the first-team base defense in place of Lamur for a few weeks now and will get the nod over Lamur in Monday night's preseason game against the Bucs. Lamur was one of the worst 4-3 linebackers in the league last season, grading out 39th out of 40 qualifiers at Pro Football Focus. Rey received positive marks for his run defense across 1,029 snaps in 2014. Aug 24 - 6:53 PM

Bengals MLB Vincent Rey is getting reps with the first-team defense during OTAs.

Rey made three starts in place of an injured Rey Maualuga last season, finishing with 32 tackles and three sacks. He was an upgrade against the run and in coverage, and will be given an opportunity to earn the starting job. At worst, Rey should back up at all three linebacker spots and see snaps in sub packages.

Bengals re-signed LB Vincent Rey to a two-year extension.

Rey was a revelation filling in for an injured Rey Maualuga last season, recording 32 tackles, three sacks and an interception in only three starts. The former undrafted free agent has been primarily a special teams player in his four-year career, but is earning more and more defensive snaps with his play. He should be given a shot to compete in training camp and will at the very least be the first linebacker off the bench in Cincinnati.

Vinny Rey posted 15 tackles, three sacks, three pass breakups and one interception in Sunday's Week 10 overtime loss at Baltimore.

Rey is filling in for Rey Maualuga (knee) and at this rate, Maualuga may never get his job back. Vinny's three sacks Sunday were equal to the number Maualuga has posted in his entire 68-game career. He'll be an IDP plug-n-play in Week 11 and then the Bengals will reevaluate the situation. Maualuga is expected to be healthy following the Week 12 bye.

Bengals re-signed exclusive rights free agent LB Vincent Rey to a one-year, $630,000 contract.

Rey recorded 22 tackles in 16 games mainly as a special teamer in 2012, and he'll revert back to that role this upcoming season while backing up the three linebacker spots.

Rey, a 2010 undrafted free agent out of Duke, is getting a chance to stick in Cincinnati thanks to his special teams play. He had nine tackles in that role last season.
