Maybin just a tough fit

Posted by Chris Brown on August 15, 2011 – 12:32 pm

Aaron Maybin in a 3-4 scheme just wasn’t going to be a fit, and so his release by the Bills Monday is something that unfortunately doesn’t come as a surprise.

When asked about Maybin by reporters, Chan Gailey said the LB worked hard, gave good effort, but he made it clear that Maybin struggled to hold his ground at the point of attack, could not produce consistently and had a long way to go. That shouldn’t be the description for a third-year player.

Maybin also wasn’t helped by the fact that his competition excelled, most notably Shawne Merriman and second-year LB Danny Batten as both logged a pair of sacks in the preseason opener.
