Jets' Maybin looks to become regular contributor in 2012 (http://www.examiner.com/article/jets-maybin-looks-to-become-regular-contributor-2012)

New York Jets outside linebacker Aaron Maybin, once considered a draft bust of the Buffalo Bills, has set his sights this offseason on becoming a major contributor to Rex Ryanís defense for the 2012 season. He wants to be a three-down player, and he has the teamís support, with Ryan saying of him last week that he has ďjust scratched the surfaceĒ of his potential. Part of the plan to reach that goal is to bulk up to around 250 pounds. Speaking to the New York Post, Maybin commented about being an every down guy:

Feasibly, [for] somebody thatís 228, 229, itís hard to do that. Itís not impossible, but when youíre going against guys that are 330, 340, 350, you get to play 40, 50 [percent] of the game, itís tough. I definitely felt it last year. After the season, I had to take a few weeks to really just get my body together.
