Report: Bills Looking To Trade OLB Aaron Maybin

Way back in February, during the 2011 NFL Combine, Buffalo Bills GM Buddy Nix was asked point-blank by assembled media whether or not the team was ready to give up on 2009 first-round pick Aaron Maybin, who'd done little in his first two NFL seasons. Nix gave a very to-the-point, one-word answer: "No."

That stance appears to have changed months later, however, as NFL.com's Michael Lombardi is reporting that he's heard that the Bills are shopping Maybin - to no avail, of course - on the trade market, and that they're hopeful that another team will take the former No. 11 overall pick off of their hands.

In two years at the professional level, Maybin has played two different positions for two coaching staffs in two different defensive schemes. He hasn't had it easy, but he also has had no impact, accumulating just 24 tackles in that time frame. Bills head coach Chan Gailey has been repeatedly openly critical of Maybin, all the while going out of his way to praise some of the other young pass-rushing talent the team employs.

As I said yesterday regarding the Lee Evans trade speculation: don't hold your breath waiting for something to get done on this front.
