Most pundits don’t seem all that excited about the idea of the Bengals bringing Mays back.
They can’t quit him. We’ve all been there w/ bad girlfriend before RT @WilliamsonNFL: Bengals really had to have Taylor Mays back that bad?

Mays, a highly touted high school that starred in college for the Southern Cal Trojans, was selected in the second round of the of the 2010 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers.
Things went poorly for Mays in San Francisco and he found himself with the Bengals just a year later.
Mays has primarily been a safety in his NFL career, but has played some linebacker for the Bengals.
Mays made 19 tackles in eight games for the Bengals in 2013 before the Bengals placed him on Injured Reserve with a dislocated shoulder.
