Jets' HC Adam Gase reportedly wanted to trade S Marcus Maye before the start of last season, per Manish Mehta of NY Daily News.
"Gase wanted to trade Maye after he was hired last year before being convinced to keep the player," Mehta added. The Jets drafted Cal safety Ashytn Davis in NFL 2020 Draft, which prompted Maye's future. It was reported that Maye would unlikely sign a second contract with the Jets. He racked up 65 tackles and one interception across 16 games in 2019. The 27-year-old will compete with Davis to start along side star safety Jamal Adams. Maye is currently 110th among all defensive backs in the latest expert consensus rankings.
S Marcus Maye unlikely to sign second contract with the Jets, per Rich Cimini of ESPN.
Maye is entering the final season of his rookie contract, but the Jets are unlikely to re-sign him. After being limited to just six contests in 2018 due to a shoulder injury, Maye suited up for all 16 games in 2019, racking 65 tackles and one interception. The Jets are looking extend star strong safety Jamal Adams and selected Ashtyn Davis in the third round, making Maye the odd man out in the Jets defensive backfield. Maye is currently outside the top-60 among all DBs in the latest expert consensus rankings.
