Bengals re-sign Taylor Mays

The Cincinnati Bengals re-signed safety Taylor Mays to a one-year contract.

His deal had expired last week and he was an unrestricted free agent.

Mays is a 6-foot-3, 220-pounder who played in eight games with one start before ending his season with a dislocated shoulder suffered against the Detroit Lions.

The former San Francisco 49ers second-round draft pick from USC was acquired by the Bengals during a 2011 trade.

For his career, Mays has 50 games played and 10 starts with 79 tackles, a blocked punt recovered for a touchdwon, a forced fumble and four pass deflections.
