The New York Jets are feeling good on a Monday morning, something not normally said.
Aaron Maybin has agreed to sign his restricted free agent tender of $1.26 million to stay with Gang Green, according to Manish Mehta.
Maybin, who was a total bust in Buffalo after being drafted 11th overall by the Buffalo Bills in 2009, was somewhat of a revelation in New York. Under Rex Ryan, Maybin flourished in a pass-rushing role. He ended the year with six sacks which was good enough to lead the team.
The Penn State product just turned 24-years-old a few weeks ago, so it's very possible that the Jets might have a legitimate player just starting to bloom.
Maybin was expected to be a major-impact player for the Bills right away, but looked overwhelmed more often than not.
Now, New York is hoping to reap the benefits of a young player finally finding his way in the NFL.
