  NFL | Aaron Maybin retires    Tue May 13, 05:43 PM

Former Buffalo Bills first-round pick LB Aaron Maybin, who was playing in the Canadian Football League most recently, has announced his retirement from professional football.

Footballguys view: Maybin is one of the biggest first-round busts in NFL history. He failed to live up to his potential as a pass-rusher for the Bills. Maybin bounced around after that and now he's done playing football.

  Jets | Antwan Barnes not expected to fizzle    Wed Jul 31, 08:46 PM

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan shot down comparisons between LB Antwan Barnes and former LB Aaron Maybin (Bengals), who fizzled as a situational pass rusher last season after a strong 2011 performance. 'No, he is a completely different guy,' Ryan said Wednesday, July 31. 'I think he can be more involved in some of our base stuff as well. But Antwan's a guy certainly that brings some pass rush ability to us.'

Cincinnati Bengals LB Aaron Maybin has been told by the coaching staff that he will line up at SAM linebacker, and he will be brought down to rush off the edge in passing situations. It's a position he has not played with regularity in past stops with the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets, but one his feels will show his versatility. 'The only way you can ever make yourself better and continue to improve is that you try to improve the total package and not one piece of the game,' Maybin said.

  Jets | Bulkier Aaron Maybin eyes bigger role     Tue Jun 5, 10:26 AM

New York Jets LB Aaron Maybin was used as a pass-rushing specialist last season, but believes he's ready to operate as a three-down linebacker in 2012. A lighter frame kept him off the field in situations in 2011, but he's used this offseason to pack on pounds, and hopes to play at close to 250 this upcoming season. Maybin said he is eating between 5,000 and 6,000 calories a day to bulk up.

New York Jets LB Aaron Maybin is looking for a bigger role in the team's defense this upcoming season.

Footballguys view: The size of Maybin's role may depend on whether the Jets land Melvin Ingram or Courtney Upshaw in the first round.

  Jets | Aaron Maybin could play in Week 4     Thu Sep 29, 10:19 AM

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said LB Aaron Maybin could be activated for the team's Week 4 game. The Jets believe Maybin's speed could be an asset against the Baltimore Ravens, specifically OT Bryant McKinnie. McKinnie outweighs Maybin by 120 pounds, conservatively, but Maybin's quick burst of the ball could help. If the coaches like what they see in practice, they will put Maybin in some of their sub packages with the hope he can inject some life into the pass rush.
