Lewis Feels LB Rey Maualuga Is Ready To Start In The Middle

Asked at the NFL owners’ meetings in New Orleans if SLB Rey Maualuga could step in at middle linebacker in 2011, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said the former USC star would be capable of such a move. “I think Rey is ready to take over however we decide to put things together,” Lewis said, according to the team.

“I think if he’s given that opportunity, I think he’ll excel at it. Rey Maualuga can handle it (mentally).” Lewis also indicated Michael Johnson would be a candidate to replace Maualuga on the strong side if Maualuga moves to the middle. Dhani Jones, the team’s starting middle linebacker in ’10, is slated to be an unrestricted free agent.
