The Bengals have re-signed safety Taylor Mays, according to CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora.

This news broke late Tuesday night, the Bengals are likely to confirm the news Wednesday.

The move adds depth to the defense where Mays served as a safety/linebacker hybrid last year. Mays played well in his new role as well as shining on special teams before missing the second half of the season with a shoulder injury.
