NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Linebacker Aaron Maybin has been waived by the Jets, a season after he led the team with six sacks.
Maybin was unproductive this year, registering just one tackle without any sacks on a team desperate for a pass rushing presence. He was inactive for the Jets’ game at Seattle on Sunday.
The disappointing 2009 first-round pick of the Buffalo Bills was signed by New York last season and revived his career. He was expected to have a larger role this season as an edge pass rusher, but failed to make an impact.
The Jets placed versatile defensive back Isaiah Trufant on injured reserve Monday after he injured a knee against the Seahawks. He was New York’s nickel back and also a top performer on special teams.
The team also signed running back Kahlil Bell after a workout session Tuesday, according to the New York Post.
Steve Slaton was also given a look, multiple reports stated.
Wow, Maybin a two-time bust? Be heard in the comments below…
