Toronto Argonauts sign Aaron Maybin to practice roster


Former Bills, Jets and Bengals edge rusher Aaron Maybin is giving the Canadian Football League a shot.

The Toronto Argonauts added Maybin, the Bills’ 2009 first-round pick, to their practice roster on Sunday.

A practice roster is akin to an NFL practice squad.

The Bengals released Maybin in August. Previously, he played for the Jets, whom he joined after only two seasons with Buffalo.

Maybin’s best NFL season came in 2011, when he notched six sacks for the Jets. However, the club waived him last November. He recorded just one tackle in eight regular-season games for the Jets in 2012.

The Giants worked out Maybin in September, but he went unsigned. Now, he’s joining the Argonauts, who have clinched the CFL’s East Division.

    Maybin is an individual with introspective solitary hobbies, relaxed demeanor, and too much money in his bank account.

    TRANSLATION: Maybin doesn’t have any fire to play football

    Henry, for sure.

    I GOOGLED his net worth and salaries because I was wondering why he isn’t traveling the world renting for a year here and there (Paris/Barcelona/Prague/Rome/Berlin/etc).

    You have to give him credit for being smart enough to keep on earning (or attempting to earn) while pursuing his true interests.

    Ottawa gets an expansion draft later this year, so he might get a shot at making an active roster again. I’m not sure if the expansion draft rules cover practice players, but if he does well for Toronto, Ottawa might be interested; I doubt he’s going to be so great that the Argos will feel the need to protect him.
