The Jets have questioned Maye to enjoy shut to the line of scrimmage this year, getting above the part Adams occupied very last year. Maye skipped a several other sacks of Charges quarterback Josh Allen, but overall he seemed at ease in his new part.

“I skipped a couple of performs that I must have designed, but I’m just out there playing soccer,” Maye mentioned. “No make a difference what place you are on the area, you’ve got to master and adapt. Which is just what I’ve been seeking to do. I’ve got to continue to make performs and direct the guys.”
