Maybin did fall victim to number’s game Dan Leberfeld

The Jets cut Aaron Maybin earlier this week.

Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine said, “I think he fell victim to a number’s game.”

Yes he did.

He had one tackle and no sacks in eight games. The no sacks in eight games is a bad number for a situational pass rusher.

Maybin is a great guy, he really is, so it was a hard cut for the coaches.

Pettine and Rex Ryan want to paint this picture of a roster number’s issues leading to the release of Maybin.

Honestly, that isn’t what happened here.

He didn’t produce this year. That is the bottom line.
