Hobson mentions the Bengals would Mays to return as their nickel linebacker to replace the Emmanuel Lamur, who signed with the Vikings last week.

After four years with the Bengals, Mays signed a one-year contract with the Raiders last year and is now testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent.
