Newly-minted New York Jets outside linebacker Aaron Maybin can't wait to prove himself after a rough…
Bills don't regret cutting Maybin
"I saw where somebody said he didn't fit the scheme. I don't know what scheme he fits at that size, unless you're a strong safety. He says his metabolism and maybe that's what it is. He couldn't hold weight. He was 250 at the combine when we saw him and then he was 228 this fall. He goes up and down some but not very high."
The press release announcing Maybin being cut was approximately a dozen words.
And Maybin, who's likely to draw interest from other NFL teams, is also a non-factor in pass coverage.
Before training camp, Maybin told Scout at a football camp in Woodlawn, Md., that things would be different this year.
"I'm going to prove all the doubters wrong," Maybin said. "I know what people have been saying about me, calling me a bust, and that just motivates me. That gives me fuel. I don't care what the critic say. I just want my teammates and coaches to believe in me. That's all that matters."
"You make way more out of those picks than we do and than I do," Nix said. "I know the money is a big deal. I don't think that will be as big now and as much pressure will be on the player. I think what happens when you miss on a pick that high, a first or second or even third round, it sets you back because you keep trying to fill that void. "That's the reason we took a little longer. We needed him and wanted him to come through and wanted to make sure we gave him every opportunity. He did everything he could do. He practiced hard, he hustled and he did everything we asked of him. It just didn't work out."
Added Bills coach Chan Gailey: We don't go by just games because you can create a hero and you can create a goat in a hurry in a game. It's everything that is involved the whole time a guy is here. It's his body of work."
