Is Maybin Next on Gailey’s Cut List?


By now you know, Aaron Maybin is days away from receiving the ever so powerful ‘bust’ label in the NFL.

Drafted 11th overall in last year’s draft, Maybin has gone from not being productive out on the field, to not even making it onto the field, as he was a healthy scratch is last week’s OT lost to the Baltimore Ravens. A healthy scratch says a lot about a player, especially when he is on one of the NFL’s worst defenses.

“He has to continue to improve his all-around play and that includes special teams,” Gailey told ESPN. “And to be honest with you, it gets harder and harder because this is game planning. It’s not going out and practicing to see who wins spots right now.

Maybin was needed more than ever this year with the sudden retirement of Aaron Schobel, but unfortunately, Maybin is still looking for his second sack midway through his second year in the pros.

With Gailey quick to pull the trigger already this year in releasing Trent Edwards and trading Marshawn Lynch, will Maybin be the next to go to make room on the roster for player more to Coach Gailey’s liking?

    Hey Paul,

    I knew the Bills were going to put up a fight, but I didn’t expect OT! Like I mentioned, Fitzpatrick is on fire and I knew he would be dangers coming in Sunday.

    Although they’re 0-6, the Bills sure don’t play like like an 0-6 team. Congratulations on a great game, and best of luck next week.
