New, comments

In the article referenced above -- the one where only Glenn Holt signed that was updated to show three ER-FA signed -- the Bengals have Rashad Jeanty and Corey Mays under contract for 2008 -- both linebackers. This gives the Cincinnati Bengals 12 linebackers signed for 2008 -- including David Pollack and Odell Thurman. They are, in no particular order:

Linebacker Age Seasons Games Started
Rashad Jeanty 24 2 22 16
Ahmad Brooks 23 2 13 7
Dhani Jones 30 8 109 83
Jim Maxwell 26 4 36 --
Corey Mays 24 2 20 1
Anthony Schlegel 26 2 17 5
David Pollack 25 2 14 6
Eric Henderson 25 1 0 0
Odell Thurman 24 1 16 16*
Darryl Blackstock 24 3 46 --
Roy Manning 26 3 21 --
Brandon Johnson 24 2 9 --

Only Brooks, Jones, Schlegel, Pollack and Thurman are signed beyond 2008. The team's linebackers are mostly filled with young inexperienced linebackers -- Rashad Jeanty and Dhani Jones account for 74% of total starts by linebackers signed for 2008.
