The Cincinnati Bengals continue to show their since of loyalty in free agency, bringing back many guys that have worn a Bengals uniform their entire careers. Early Friday morning the team announced they will be keeping backup linebacker Vincent Rey. The 26 year-old and management agreed to a deal that will have Rey in orange and black for at least the next two seasons.
Along with Brandon Tate, Mike Pollak, and Taylor Mays; Vincent Rey becomes another key rotational player the Bengals have decided to bring back. Though the Duke graduate is not a big name player for Cincinnati, he is a major contributor defensively off the bench.
Talent wise we have yet to see all that Vincent Rey is capable of, given the right opportunity. Entering his fifth year with the franchise, the linebacker is coming off his best year; statistically speaking. Rey registered a total of 57 tackles and four sacks in 2013. He also added two interceptions and a forced fumble, while playing in all 16 regular season games for Cincinnati. Expect to really see Vincent come out of his shell and be a big-time player for the Bengals in 2014
