Jets Maybin upset over Penn State scandal

By Marc A. Greenberg

New York Jets linebacker Aaron Maybin’s reaction to the Penn State scandal involving Jerry Sandusky is pretty much what you’d expect.

The former Nittany Lion is saddened to see what has happened.

“It’s very unfortunate,” he said. “Obviously, I wasn’t a player under Coach Sandusky. But, with me being there for the amount of time I was, I was able to know him and a bunch of the other guys that are involved in the investigation. “Obviously, no one really knows how it’s going to play out and what’s true and what’s not. It’s unfortunate. I’m praying for the families of those affected and hopefully it all sorts itself out.”

Maybin, who played for Penn State from 2006-08, said he has reached out to a few players on the team to lend his support.

When asked if he thought head coach Joe Paterno should resign, Maybin wasn’t sure.

“In order for me to have feelings on that I would have to know a lot more about what the situation is,” he said. “Obviously, when you have a subject that is so sensitive you really have got to watch what you say. At this point, there are eight families that have been affected. You definitely don’t want to step on anybody’s toes.”
