    You realize Maybin has been playing and training on teams from HS to the NFL level all of his life.

    I just don't get how people can just throw out all of his life like that ans say that he has no desire to play in the NFL.

    Obviously you are if you don't want to bring in the best players. He isn't necessarily a starter, but pack the roster with talent and let the best players play.

He will be familiar with the system coming in and the players already here. It could actually be a real help to have a guy like him in the locker room to help guys like Mario understand what is expected of them.
    What?? Maybin, a guy with no desire and no talent, is going to be an example to Mario? That's ludicrous.

    You simply CAN'T be drafted in the NFL in the first round with 0 talent.

    I'll give you that he does nto always give it his all, but physically he is actually a very talented guy. Like drafted in the 1st round of the NFL level talent.

    Not be an example of "hey be as good as I am" but teach him the offense, help him understand where to be on the field. I think Mario's skill and understanding of how to use leverage and his hands will rub off on maybin then too... It's a mutually beneficial deal

    Simple. He couldn't even figure out how to play special teams when on the roster with the Bills. Playing special teams is simply about desire and wanting to whatever you can to be on the field. Since you brought up Tebow, look at him. Even though he got shafted about the QB position with the Jets, he played punt team. That shows a desire to contribute, and a certain maturity level. Maybin couldn't even make that committment.

    Maybin probably grew up being bigger and more talented than the other kids. He then got to Penn St, where as a speed rusher he had one good season, and then came into pro football where all the guys are bigger, stronger, faster. And he couldn't hack it. So hopefully he invested the millions he got from his failure as an NFL player and will have a happy life. But there should be absolutely no question in anyone's mind that he does not belong on an NFL roster.

    No, we shouldn't. Even the Jets let him go.

    There are tons of guys with physical talent, but don't have the talent to play professional football. Maybin is a classic example. So was Mike Williams. Both guys with some physical skills, but didn't translate to actual football skill. And that had a lot to do with a lack of motivation and desire.

    Why anyone would want to bring a guy back here who showed that he didn't have the ability and desire to make it in the league is a complete mystery to me. Do you honestly believe that's how you build a winning franchise?

    Doesn't Maybin have a rap album called 'Mayhem Maybin' or something like that?

    What do you think Bills Mafia??
    .....very odd post from the boards' intellectual?.....Maybin is done and will be bagging groceries from here on out....the bigger question is what are we going to do with Mark Anderson?

    Aaron Maybin - LB - Free Agent

    NEWS: The Seahawks worked out free agent OLB/DE Aaron Maybin before signing DE Patrick Chukwurah on Tuesday.

    ANALYSIS: It's Maybin's first known workout since being cut by the Jets in November. He registered six sacks with New York in 2011 but managed just one tackle in eight games in 2012. Being passed over for a guy that hadn't played in a game since 2008, Maybin's NFL future is cloudy. ...from rotoworld

    So did Vince Young, or better yet JaMarcus Russell. What say you?

    Yes? We already gave Maybin his chance.

    My point was so you want to bring back VY or Russell because they had "first round" talent?

    That isn't a very good excuse for bringing someone like Maybin back, for a second chance no less.

    Maybin was cut more by the Jets then he was by the Bills, which is funny.

    Sometimes I wish you would just throw away your life.
