Rey signs with Cincinnati Bengals

Former Mercersburg Academy linebacker Vincent Rey, a 2006 graduate, has signed a free-agent contract with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Rey was a three-year starter at Duke and a second-team All-ACC selection in 2009 and made 330 tackles during his college career, including 28 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks. He is one of 13 players in Blue Devils history to register more than 300 career tackles.

Rey, of Far Rockaway, N.Y., holds the Mercersburg Academy record for fumble returns for touchdowns (three). He led the Blue Storm to a 9-1 record and the Mid-Atlantic Prep League championship in 2006.

The Bengals' rookie minicamp begins Friday in Cincinnati. Rey is the first Mercersburg football player to appear in an NFL camp since Matt Kranchick, a 1999 graduate who played tight end for the Pittsburgh Steelers, New York Giants, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New England Patriots from 2004 to 2007. Kranchick was a sixth-round pick by the Steelers in 2004 out of Penn State.
