In 2008, the Jets used a first-round pick on linebacker Vernon Gholston, who became a colossal bust. He’s now a member of the Bears.
The following year, the Bills used a first-round pick on linebacker Aaron Maybin. They cut the cord after only two seasons.
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that the Jets have offered Maybin, who cleared waivers earlier today, a one-year deal. Per Mehta, five or six other teams have made a similar offer.
Maybin, like Gholston, has no career sacks.
