Linebacker Aaron Maybin has been waived by the New York Jets, a season after he led the team with six sacks.
Maybin was unproductive this year, registering just one tackle without any sacks on a team desperate for a pass rushing presence. He was inactive for the Jets' game at Seattle on Sunday.
The disappointing 2009 first-round pick of the Buffalo Bills was signed by New York last season and revived his career. He was expected to have a larger role this season as an edge pass rusher, but failed to make an impact.
The Jets also placed versatile defensive back Isaiah Trufant on injured reserve Monday after he injured a knee against the Seahawks. He was New York's nickel back and also a top performer on special teams.
BEST OF MAXIM
LaDainian Tomlinson said Wednesday that he thinks he knows the identities of at least two of the Jets players who anonymously savaged Tim Tebow.
I GET SO EMOTIONAL
Known for his bluster and bravado, the Jets coach showed a different side of himself to his players following their loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.
The horrid play of Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez along with the team's 3-6 record has some fans and pundits calling for the Jets to finally make the move and insert Tim Tebow as starting quarterback.
That might be a popular decision among the masses outside of Rex Ryan's tear-filled locker room, but inside, Tebow has anything but the support of his Gang Green teammates....
After yet another putrid performance in Sunday’s 28-7 loss to the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Washington, it is more evident than ever that Mark Sanchez is a quarterback incapable of making the New York Jets a winning organization. … Continue reading →
When you’re are the quarterback of a team and expected to be a leader, it’s a bad sign when your teammates have no confidence in you.According to the Daily News, New York Jets players believe Tebow shouldn’t be starting at quarterback, and going as far as saying, “he’s terrible.”There has been a lot of hoopla over the quarterback situation in New York since the offseason...
Per a report from CNN’s Sports Illustrated, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan thinks the player(s) who called Tim Tebow “terrible” are “a cowardly thing.” Ryans comments are in response to an earlier report of over a dozen Jets players and members of the organization anonymously criticizing Tebow. Ryan is absolutely right; if you want to call Tebow terrible, be like the...
I really don’t like the Jets, mostly because they are blinded by their own arrogance. Last year Rex Ryan continued to tout his team as a Super Bowl contender instead of paying attention in the clubhouse. They rewarded a mediocre quarterback coming off a disappointing season with a contract extension. They declare that they are a ground-and-pound team despite not having personnel...
The New York Jets' offense was listless in Seattle and that didn't sit well with head coach Rex Ryan.
There's a strong possibility many NFL teams will be starting backup quarterbacks in Week 11 for one reason or another, though the New York Jets won't be one of them.
That seems to be just fine with a few unidentified teammates of Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow.
Coach Rex Ryan's task of helping the slumping Jets remain positive is becoming increasingly difficult as they...
