Mays is facing an addition to his four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy, Nick Shook of NFL.com reports. Mays was released by the Bengals on Saturday, and it now appears that the additional suspension was the reason for his release. He played in 14 games for the Raiders last season, recording 26 tackles and five passes defensed. Despite cutting the seventh year safety, Cincinnati hasn't ruled out bringing him back after his suspension is complete, so long as he's ready to play, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Safety Taylor Mays was released Saturday by the Raiders, per Field Yates of ESPN. Mays was a non-factor in the Oakland secondary with Nate Allen and Charles Woodson playing well in their respective positions. He might be able to catch on with another team looking for depth at that position.
Safety Taylor Mays agreed to a contract with the Raiders on Tuesday. Mays will provide some depth at a position group that saw both starters -- Nate Allen and Charles Woodson -- suffer an injury in Week 1. He will likely fill a reserve role initially, but will have a chance to see some playing time with just two other safeties on the Raiders' roster.
