NY Jets: Ranking the 53-man roster — No. 4 Marcus Maye

Former NY Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan’s finest move was drafting safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye back-to-back in the 2017 NFL Draft.

That decision bolstered this defense against the long ball — a personnel deficit that had plagued Gang Green for years.

Maye, a first-team All-American Florida Gator and 2018 Space Coast Sports Hall of Fame Inductee was Gang Green’s second-round selection (39th overall). He excelled in his rookie year, facilitating the departure of massive draft bust Calvin Pryor.

But then in 2018, Marcus struggled mightily with foot, thumb and shoulder injuries, playing in only six games.
