In 1965, his tandem with Joe Namath began. He caught 68 passes that year for 1,218 yards and 14 TDs, and the Jets were off and running. In 1967, he caught 71 balls for 1,434 yards and 10 TDs, averaging over 102 yards per game. He nearly duplicated those numbers in the Super Bowl winning season of 1968, with 1,297 yards and 10 TDs, averaging just under 100 yards per game.

Maynard was one of only 20 players to play in the AFL for its entire existence, and one of only seven to play that AFL career with only one team.

Don is a 4x AFL all star, 5x All AFL selection, and a member of the AFL all time team. He was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1987.

He has his #13 retired for the Jets, and a well deserved place in the Ring of Honor. WR Don Maynard.
