Rey is in a situation very similar to that of Anthony Hitchens in Dallas. Both serve as their team's top backup in the event of an injury to any starting linebacker. Both are versatile enough to hold a three down role if called upon. Both put up good box score production when given the opportunity. And both are having a difficult time cracking the starting lineup. Rey should start at middle linebacker while Vontaze Burfict serves his three game suspension. When Burfict returns, Karlos Dansby may move inside sending Rey to the bench or relegating him to a sub package role like the one he held for much of last season. If he can find a way to stay on the field Rey can be a strong third starter for owners in twelve team leagues starting three linebackers. (May 27)

Bengals | Vincent Rey trimming down (Sun Jul 24, 08:39 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals LB Vincent Rey has dropped almost 20 pounds this offseason using a food journal and sticking to 'The Caveman Diet,' consisting of meat, vegetables and fruit.

Our View: Rey has been the leading tackler for the Bengals in each of the last two years. Trimming down should help him cover the field better, but we don't think he'll shy away from doing most of the dirty work for this defense in 2016.
