Bills Cut Ties With LB Aaron Maybin

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Buffalo Bills have decided to release former first-round pick LB Aaron Maybin. This move isn’t all that surprising considering that we’ve been posting plenty of reports suggesting that the move could be coming in the near future but it goes down as another failed investment for the Buffalo Bills.

Buffalo’s decision to bring in Chan Gailey as the teams head coach ultimately had a negative impact on Maybin since he would now have to move linebacker in stead of playing defensive end. Reports indicated that the Bills were trying to trade him for anything but weren’t able to find any takes which is why the move was made today.

Maybin was taken ahead of players such as: Brian OrakpoBrian CushingJosh FreemanPercy Harvin and Clay Matthews in the 2009 draft.
