The Sideline View's Adam Caplan confirms that the Bengals are unlikely to re-sign free agent MLB Rey Maualuga.
Undisciplined and ineffective, Maualuga was one of the NFL's poorest middle linebacker starters last season. The Bengals plan to move forward with Vontaze Burfict manning the middle. Maualuga, 26, was suggested Monday as a potential replacement for Ray Lewis in Baltimore, by SI's Peter King. If Maualuga is cheap and vows to play within the scheme, it might be a sensible marriage.
