Buffalo Bills Waive DE/OLB Aaron Maybin

The Buffalo Bills have announced that the team has waived 2009 first-round pick (No. 11 overall) Aaron Maybin.

This is something that anyone with two eyes could've seen coming. The Bills like their current group of pass-rushing outside linebackers, and particularly young backups Antonio Coleman and Danny Batten, and those players had buried Maybin on the depth chart. In the team's pre-season opener against Chicago, Maybin got a very long look as a coverage player on special teams, and did not acquit himself very well in that capacity.

This brings an end to Maybin's brief and abysmal Bills career before its third season even began. Signed to a five-year deal that guaranteed him $15 million in August 2009, Maybin finishes his Bills career with 24 tackles and zero sacks.

The 23-year-old Penn State product will now be on the waiver wire, where another team can pick him up. Should he clear waivers, he'll become an unrestricted free agent.
