Zimmer Likes What He Sees from Maualuga

Bengals.com reports that defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer loves what he sees so far from 2nd round pick LB Rey Maualuga. Here’s the report:

Maualuga fell to the Bengals in the second round and ostensibly one of the reasons was because he lacked good movement in space. But Zimmer made it clear that Maualuga is going to get on the field for him at any point. “I think he’s a lot better in coverage than people said he was,” Zimmer said. “This guy can play three downs. They say all that crap, plus he can blitz. Why take the guy off the field if he can rush the quarterback? … I think Maualuga will show up even more when we get to training camp because he’s a football player and he’s physical.”
