07:54 AM ET 08.17 | Free agent Aaron Maybin, who cleared waivers Tuesday after the Bills cut ties with him, may find work quickly. Maybin will make his decision on Wednesday morning, according to a source. [As of 10:10 p.m. EDT] The Jets have extended a one-year offer to [Maybin], according to a source. However, about several other teams have made a similar offer. ... The Bills waived the former first-round pick from Penn State on Monday after he failed to live up to expectations. Maybin, the 11th overall selection in 2009, didn't record a sack in 27 career games. He didn't even start one game in his career. Maybin, who has trimmed down to 228 pounds (from 250), was inactive for five games last season as he struggled to fit into the Bills' new 3-4 defensive scheme.

It's too early for these clowns

Wow, Discards are now us. Ryan must really think he can do anything. lol.

Rex tries to blind opposing coaches by reflecting sunlight off his teeth. A few years back he got Tony Sporano, who now has to wear dark glasses, even indoors at night.

The guy tries, he just does not have it.
He plays at 228 lbs and gets crushed by blockers. Look, he only started one year at psu. This was a Jauron pick and he was wrong.

I guess a little Colgate on a nylon stocking whitens teeth pretty well.

He supplements with the nylons when his wife's feet are in them.

Got it.
Most waitresses get bigger tips with a low-cut blouse. When Rex shows up, they all put on sandals.

He's still young. Why not? Bring him in on a minimum contract and see if Rex can't light a fire under him.

The 2nd coming of Vernon Gholston

August 17, 2011  09:24 AM ET

228 is what your starting safeties should weigh. It doesn't matter if he has all the technique, desire and smarts in the world, there's no way he can play up front with the big boys at that weight.

August 17, 2011  09:51 AM ET

He wasn't dubbed Aaron Maybe in Buffalo for nothing. And (to tweak the song), if you can't make it there, you can't make it anywhere.

August 17, 2011  10:15 AM ET

I still don't understand how Maybin became a Will-backer. The guys only weighs 220 and that's the reason why the Bills cut him. He is a safety at best.
