Defensive end Aaron Maybin this afternoon has agreed to a 5-year $25 million deal with the Buffalo Bills after missing all of training camp. The former Penn State All-American led the Big Ten with 12 sacks last season in his thirteen games played. Buffalo will rely heavily on Maybin to make immediate contributions after finishing their 2008-2009 campaign with just 24 sacks as a team. His agent Chafie Fields told The Associated Press: “Aaron’s happy to be here and ready to go to work.”
The Maybin deal leaves two unsigned first round picks; offensive tackle Andre Smith and wide receiver Michael Crabtree, who has informed the San Francisco 49ers organization that he’ll be willing to sit out the entire season if he doesn’t receive an adequate offer. The Buffalo Bills have two more preseason games against the Green Bay Packers and the defending Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers before the regular season kicks off. Week one has the Bills scheduled to take on the New England Patriots September 14th at Gillette Stadium.
