Maye recorded a team-high 10 tackles (seven solo) and a tackle for loss in Sunday's season finale against the Patriots, bringing his season total to a career-best 88 tackles.
Only linebacker Neville Hewitt (134) finished with more tackles, and Maye also contributed two interceptions, two sacks and 11 passes defensed. The safety was one of the few consistent positive performers on a team that finished 2-14, so Maye will likely be extended by the Jets, as the 2017 second-round pick's rookie contract has expired.
Maye finished with 10 tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 18-10 loss to the Bills.
Maye was a tackling machine in both games against the Bills this season, racking up 10 tackles in each matchup. The safety has added 24 tackles over the five games in between, giving him a total of 44 heading into a Week 8 date with the Chiefs.
Maye had two tackles, an interception and a pass defensed in Sunday's 24-0 loss to Miami.
Maye's highlight-reel interception gave Jets fans something to cheer about in what was otherwise another dismal performance from the league's last winless team. He got inside position on the receiver to defend the pass, then pinned the ball against his backside on the way down before finally securing it behind his back after it started roll out of his hand. Maye has been one of the few bright spots for New York, with 34 tackles, two sacks, an interception and four passes defensed heading into a Week 7 rematch against the Bills.
Maye recorded eight tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 36-7 loss to the Colts.
Maye has been one of the few bright spots for the 0-3 Jets. The 27-year-old safety has 25 tackles and two sacks through three games.
Maye recorded seven tackles (three solo) and a pass defensed in Sunday's 31-13 loss to San Francisco.
Maye cooled down after a career game in the season opener, but he still tied with Quinnen Williams for the team lead in tackles. The fourth-year safety out of Florida is playing the best football of his career for a Jets team that doesn't have much talent around him.
Maye notched 10 tackles (seven solo), two sacks, two defended passes and one forced fumble during Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Bills.
Maye dealt with an ankle injury earlier this week, but he didn't show any signs of being hampered during his debut in the role Jamal Adams had handled in Gregg Williams' defense for the last three years. The 27-year-old looked reminiscent of his former All Pro teammate while flying all over the field during Sunday's season opener, as he logged career-high marks in terms of both tackles and sacks. Maye, who appears to have emerged as the new star of New York's secondary, will look to keep up his momentum against the 49ers in Week 2.
Maye (calf) is officially active for the team's Week 1 contest against the Bills, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.
Maye practiced on a limited basis twice during the week, enough to get him ready for the opening contest of the season. He'll pair with Bradley McDougald to start on the back end of the Jets' secondary.
Maye (calf) is expected to play in Sunday's game versus the Bills, Kimberly Jones of NFL Network reports.
Maye logged two limited practice sessions this week, but he's made enough progress to play in the season opener. The 27-year-old will start at strong safety this season. Last season as a starter with Jamal Adams by his side, Maye produced 65 tackles, seven pass breakups and an interception, but it'll be a bit different this year with Adams replaced by Bradley McDougald.
Maye (calf) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Bills.
Maye put forth a LP/DNP/LP practice slate this week while managing a calf injury. The fourth-year pro will handle his usual starting safety role for the Jets if cleared to suit up Sunday, but a final decision on his availability won't come until the weekend.
Maye (calf) was a limited participant in Friday's practice, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Maye wasn't able to take the practice field Thursday, so it's encouraging to see that he's returned in at least limited fashion. A final decision on his status for Week 1 won't be made until the weekend, but Matthias Farley and Ashtyn Davis would be in line for increased workloads if he were to miss any time.
Maye (ankle/calf) didn't suit up for Thursday's practice, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Maye was a limited participant for Wednesday's session, but he was downgraded while adding the ankle injury to his issues. The Florida product's status is worth monitoring, as he's expected to serve as the starting strong safety in 2020. If he's forced to miss Week 1's game against Buffalo, Matthias Farley and Ashtyn Davis could be in line to see an increased snap count.
Maye exited practice early Sunday with calf tightness, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Maye wanted to finish practice, but head coach Adam Gase decided to proceed with caution. Bennett Jackson and Ashtyn Davis will cover first-team duties while Maye sits out. Heading into his fourth season, Maye is expected to start once he's healthy, although he won't have All-Pro Jamal Adams on his side for the first time of his career.
Maye finished the 2019 season with 65 tackles and one interception.
Maye was able to dress for all 16 games, staying healthy after a shoulder injury limited him to just six appearances in 2018. The 26-year-old safety had a few near-interceptions that he would surely want to have back, but he still turned in a solid campaign overall. Maye and fellow 2017 draftee Jamal Adams should continue to start alongside each other at safety in 2020 barring an injury or trade.
Maye (shoulder) is practicing in a normal jersey Sunday and taking contact, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.
Maye's sophomore season was derailed by a shoulder injury, but he's back to full health and has now shed the red non-contact jersey. The safety's health is one of the biggest keys to the Jets defense's success this season.
Maye (shoulder) is wearing a red non-contact jersey during Tuesday's practice, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Maye is participating in team drills for the first time since suffering his shoulder injury, albeit with the second team and without full contact. The Jets are taking a cautious approach to the third-year safety's recovery, since Maye is expected to step into a starting role when healthy.
Maye (shoulder) was activated from the PUP list Sunday and participated in individual and 7-on-7 drills, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.
May opened camp on the PUP list while recovering from shoulder surgery he underwent back in December. It will be the first time in a while that Maye is consistently on the football field, so look for the Jets to ease the safety back into the swing of things.
Coach Adam Gase said "I really hope so" Wednesday when asked whether Maye (shoulder) would be ready for Week 1, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.
Maye played only six games in 2018. The third-year safety underwent surgery in December to address an unspecified shoulder issue, and continues to work through his rehab process. As a result, Maye was placed on the PUP list to start training camp after he was limited throughout previous offseason activities. He won't be eligible to practice unless he's removed from the list.
Maye (shoulder) will start training camp on the Physically Unable to perform list.
Maye underwent surgery in December to correct an unspecified shoulder problem and was limited during offseason work to this point. The Jets were optimistic their free safety was going to be ready for the start of camp, but it's not time to panic about Maye missing regular-season action. When healthy, Maye will join Jamal Adams to form one of the more daunting safety tandems in the NFL.
Coach Adam Gase said Wednesday that Maye's (shoulder) limitations in offseason workouts are precautionary, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports. The safety is expected to be a full participant from the outset of training camp this summer.
Maye's offseason has been marred by injury rehab for the second year in a row, this time due to December surgery to correct an unspecified shoulder problem. However, he was only slated for a few months of rehab from the time he went under the knife, and it seems he's now nearing full health. The fact the Jets are playing it safe with him in OTAs is no surprise. When healthy, Maye will join Jamal Adams to form one of the more daunting safety tandems in the NFL.
Maye (shoulder) is not participating in team drills during the opening week of OTAs, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Maye is coming off shoulder surgery and is presumably being eased into his return to 11-on-11 drills. It sounds as if the promising safety has otherwise been heavily involved in the offseason program to date, though, and it's likely only a matter of time until the Jets coaching staff feels comfortable allowing Maye to practice without limitations.
