Dolphins Working Out Veteran LB Rey Maualuga

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Dolphins are working out several linebackers including veteran Rey Maualuga on Wednesday.

Maualuga previously visited with the Chiefs back in April but left Kansas City without an agreement. This is the first reported interest in Maualuga since then.

Miami could really use some linebacker depth after they, unfortunately, lost second-round pick Raekwon McMillan for the season with a torn ACL last week.

Maualuga, 30, is a former second-round pick of the Bengals back in 2009. He was entering the final year of his three-year, $15 million contract and was set to make a base salary of $3.7 million in 2017.

The Bengals released several months ago in a move that created $3,668,750 in available cap space.

In 2016, Maualuga appeared in 14 games for the Bengals and recorded 27 total tackles, one interception and two pass defenses. Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 85 overall linebacker out of 87 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Top 50 Available Free Agents list.
