Aaron Maybin led the Jets with 6 sacks last season in a part time role. Now, he is seeking to increase that role.

“I’m just trying to make sure that through this offseason, our coaching staff sees exactly what I see,” Maybin said tonight at the Fashion and Football Runway Show in Manhattan, where he showcased his artwork. “And that they’re confident putting me out there on first and second down, and knowing that the same production that comes on third down can come on first and second down as well.”

Aaron is putting on weight this off season, looking to hit a target weight between 240-250 pounds, so he will feel more comfortable playing on every down. He is likely to have more competition, with the decent chance that the Jets choose a pass rusher in the draft.
