The Bengals on Friday signed free agent LB Aaron Maybin, a fifth-year NFL player, to a reserve/future contract. He will count on the team’s Active List beginning Feb. 4, the Monday after the Super Bowl.
Maybin (6-4, 240; Penn State) has 47 career NFL games, split between the Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets.
He played in eight games for the Jets in 2012, ranking fifth on the team in QB hits (nine) and logging four tackles. He was released by the Jets on Nov. 13 of last season.
Maybin was a first-round draft choice by Buffalo (11th overall) in 2009. He played two seasons for the Bills and was signed by the Jets as a free agent during 2011 training camp. In 2011, he led the Jets in sacks (6.0) and forced fumbles (four).
