Chan Gailey: Aaron Maybin "On The Outside Looking In"

To say that Buffalo Bills defensive end Aaron Maybin is on thin ice with the team that made him a first-round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft would be an understatement. Left inactive or on the sidelines for much of his second season, Maybin finished the 2010 campaign with six tackles in extremely limited action.

Chan Gailey didn't pull his punches when talking about Maybin's future with the Bills.

"Right now, he’s on the outside looking in," Gailey told reporters Monday. "That’s where he is. And if he improves, he’ll improve his status. But if he doesn’t improve his status, he won’t find playing time on this football team."

The Bills signed oft-injured outside linebacker Shawne Merriman to a two-year contract extension this past weekend. Maybin said he didn't see that signing as a statement toward his playing future, but did state that his goal is go earn more playing time next season.

"As far as my role on the team this year, in my mind, I didn’t have a prominent one," Maybin said. "So, my whole issue is, until I can say something other than that my focus needs to be getting to the point where I’m a major contributor. At the end of the day all else really doesn’t matter. Getting on the field, getting the snaps and then making sure the production is there once I get the snaps is the main goal now."
