Aaron Maybin, New York Jets agree to one-year deal

Aaron Maybin and the New York Jets have reached agreement on a one-year deal, Coach Rex Ryan confirmed in a press conference.

Maybin, a draft bust who was cut by the Buffalo Bills on Monday, would bolster the pass rush, Ryan said, if he can make the team. And that may be one big “if.” Maybin, nicknamed “Maybe” by Bills fans, was the 11th pick overall in the 2009 draft — and has no sacks. A standout at Penn State, Maybin most likely would be a backup in Ryan’s 3-4 defense. He’ll play for the league minimum.

“We wanted to get him out there and give him an opportunity to perform,” said Chafie Fields, Maybin’s agent, told the Buffalo News.

“He’s ecstatic. He gets to play Buffalo twice, which sparked a little something in him. He’s a fan of Rex Ryan. He said, ‘I’m going to get to see Buffalo twice and I can’t wait.’ ”
