The **** do they need him for? I thought they were All-World on D already
They let go of a bum to pick up the same player with a different name....
Why is it a bad thing to sign him and see if he can rush the passer? He is absolutely no risk with how low his contract is.
You have to udnerstand the mentality of the average fan. If you pick up a player he is great, if a rival picks him up he sucks. if you want some entertainment check the archives about what the board was saying about Calvin pace when it was rumored he signed w/ Miami then check the comments by the same people after he signed w/ us.
I wanted Miami to sign Maybin and give him a look over just like the Jets appear to be doing. Doesn't mean he is going to make the 53, but why not take a look?
Exactly, what the hell does it hurt to sign him to a non guaranteed contract? If he fails we cut him and that's that.
No risk at all for the Jets. I wouldn't expect him to make the roster though. He couldn't stick with our D. The fact that he showed up to camp at 228 is a joke.
Also don't get over excited if he gets any preseason sacks. He had 2 in the preseason each of the last two years.
Still you never know, kid is 23 and just needs to grow up and take the game seriously.
Hopefully a change of scenery will do him some good.
No risk, no reward either. Guy is hot garbage.
I'm surprised the Pats didn't sign him. He fits them a lot better.
Had a strip sack in his first game, in one game he showed more tha Gholston in 3 years so that is a positive.
He did a strip sack in a preseason game against Detroit with the Bills too. Preseason means nothing. Put him up against 1st line talent and he is marginalized. Expect the Jets to cut him in the final cuts, or burn a roster spot for a year to see if anything is there to work with.
Maybin did this with only 4 days in Rex's system.He doesn't even understand the defense yet.I believe he is about to blossom under Rex's tutelage.
He also held out his rookie year. He had ONE preseason game experience before he had a strip sack against Detroit in 2009 PS. I can guarantee he didn't understand the D in 2009. I expect him to fail, and bad, but best of luck to him.
I never heard anything bad about his work ethic. As much as it sucks, he just wasn't good enough. He was a boy playing against men. I wanted more than anything for him to show something and he never did. The guy's been through a lot and if it was any other team besides a division rival, I'd be rooting for him. But now I'm not and I think Rex just likes his feet.
