Aaron Maybin is not done with the New York Jets quite yet. The former first round pick was given a second chance at an NFL career when the Jets signed him during training camp, only to release him shortly after 53-man rosters were made official, but it seems as though the Jets have once again found a roster spot for the outside linebacker.
The former 11th overall pick of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills will take the roster spot that was formerly occupied by offensive lineman Rob Turner, now placed on injured reserve, according to the New York Daily News. This completes a promise New York made as the Jets apparently told Maybin they would bring him back whenever there was an open roster spot available.
Maybin's NFL career to this point has been a bust, essentially, as the 23-year-old has amassed just 23 total tackles in his 26 games as a professional. It certainly doesn't hurt the Jets to allow him to occupy an otherwise empty roster spot, however, if he's able to eventually live up to even just part of the potential he showed during his time at Penn State.
