Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga gets 3-year deal

CINCINNATI (AP) The Bengals agreed to a three-year deal with Rey Maualuga on Thursday, keeping one of their top linebackers from leaving as a free agent.

Cincinnati's defense slipped from third in the NFL in 2013 to 22nd last season, when Maualuga and linebacker Vontaze Burfict missed significant time because of injuries. After Maualuga returned after missing four games with a pulled hamstring, the run defense improved significantly.

Maualuga, a second-round pick in 2009, could have become an unrestricted free agent next week.
