Poll: Who would you rather Bengals re-sign: Jermaine Gresham or Rey Maualuga?

The Bengals could be losing both Jermaine Gresham and Rey Maualuga in free agency, but if you had to pick one, who would you want back more? recently released their Top 101 Free Agents for 2015, and coming in near the bottom of the list were two longtime Bengals starters.

Linebacker Rey Maualuga and tight end Jermaine Gresham have been two of the most controversial figures in Cincinnati during the past five years, mostly for the wrong reasons, and both are slated to hit free agency,

That's why it was no surprise both players were listed in their 'Needs the right role' tier of free agents, which is the bottom quarter of's rankings:

73. Jermaine Gresham, TE, Cincinnati Bengals: He's a below average starter and an above average backup.

74. Rey Maualuga, LB, Cincinnati Bengals: Marvin Lewis' defense struggled without Maualuga and his instincts last year. He's a decent bet to return.

I found it interesting both were ranked back to back, and it made me question which one Bengals fans would rather see back in Cincinnati if they had the choice.
