The Jets have given former Bills first round pick Aaron Maybin a chance to revive his career. Instead, it looks like he’ll go the way of Vernon Gholston.
Jets coach Rex Ryan said Maybin is “going to have to do more” to make the team, before pointing out that Jamaal Westerman and Garrett McIntyre have played well at linebacker.
“I think he can play in this league. We’ll see if he can play for us,” Ryan said.
Translation: He’s not making this roster unless something crazy happens Thursday. (Injuries or an incredible outing by Maybin.)
We called Gholston one of the biggest defensive draft busts in recent history on Monday, but Maybin deserves consideration too if he falls out of the league only two years removed from going No. 11 overall.
