Jets Sign RB Bell, Cut OLB Maybin, & Place Trufant On IR

Recommended Posts

The Jets have made a couple of moves today in signing ex-Bear Kahlil Bell, cutting dead weight OLB Aaron Maybin, and placing DB Isaiah Trufant on IR.

Bell comes over from the Bears where in 2012 he played 2 games where he got 32 yards on 12 carries along with 1 catch for 11 yards. Bell was not that impressive for the Bears in his 4 years with the team getting 589 yards on 131 carries for no touchdowns. He has 1 career touchdown receiving by scoring on a 25 yard pass play in 2011. Bell beat out ex-Dolphin & Texan Steve Slaton for the position.

Maybin who lead the team in 2011 with 6 sacks has regressed in 2012 and ended up being cut for it. In 2012, Maybin has 1 tackle which he got in the loss against the 49ers. It looked like Maybin had some potential after the 2011 season, but it seems he couldn’t back-up the trash talking he did earlier in the season. Such a disappointment.

Trufant goes on IR after suffering a knee injury against the Seahawks which is a shame as he had an increased role on the team in 2012 getting 16 tackles and 2 pass defends in 9 games compared to his 8 tackles in 13 games in 2011. Trufant will be replaced by a combo of Ellis Lankster and Aaron Bell.
