And how do we know Maybin isn't going to be better than Suggs? Sure Suggs has made his bones in this business, but from what I am reading and hearing about Maybin, he just didn't do well with the Bills. It never helps when jackwad beat writers & fans pile on the "bust label" so that anywhere you go a bad rap follows you, but if Rex thinks he can teach this new dog old tricks, I believe he can do it.
[I]Maybin said the Jets indicated when they cut him that they would be interested in bringing him back this season. “At the end of the day, I understand that football is a business,” Maybin said. “I understand the fact that the team is in a position where they needed guys at certain positions. Even though I had made certain contributions in the preseason, they still needed guys to come in and fill roles that they just didn’t have at that point in time.”[/I]
[I]The Jets liked his athletic abilities and Ryan repeatedly said he was excited about Maybin’s speed and potential as a pass-rushing outside linebacker before they cut him. Maybin had 2 1-2 sacks in the preseason, including 1 1-2 in the Jets’ preseason finale against Philadelphia.[/I]
[I]“We kind of liked what we saw,” Ryan said, adding that it’s “a possibility” Maybin could play Sunday at Baltimore.[/I]
[I]“I was ready to play yesterday,” Maybin said with a grin.[/I]
I've been saying this since the day they hired Rex Ryan, he's not just building a team, he's building an army. :yes:
