Maualuga apologizes for being upset about being drafted in the second round

You have to give Rey Maualuga create. Once he learned how excited the Cincinnati Bengals fans were to have the Southern Cal linebacker, he showed remorse when it became known that he had dropped to the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft.

"I was upset, but that was the immature part of myself," he said. "I didn't think about the team and the fans and everybody out there that was ecstatic that I was here. I apologize for not being too happy then. I thank the fans for having me in open arms."

This came after a teleconference with over 5,000 season ticket holders in which Maualuga received the most questions. Maualuga figures to win a job at the strong outside linebacker slot while the incumbent middle linebacker, Dhani Jones, will stick in the middle. Jones. Keith Rivers. Maualuga. Fantastic.
