Here’s a spoiler from the next edition of Hard Knocks: Linebacker Aaron Maybin gets whacked.
The first-round pick of the Bills in 2009, who busted in Buffalo but then had a bit of a resurrection with the Jets, signed in Cincy during the offseason.
After two seasons with no sacks, Maybin notched six during his first season with the Jets. But the Jets cut him after eight sack-free games in 2012.
Maybin becomes a free agent, giving him two weeks to find a new team and make a positive impression before the cuts commence from 90 to 75 and then to 53.
The Bengals also waived receiver Tyrone Goard and cornerback Troy Stoudemire, both of whom had signed with the team as undrafted free agents after the 2013 draft.
