Jets' Marcus Maye: Cleared for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maye passed his physical and was cleared to return to practice Tuesday, Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus reports.

Maye was placed on the non-football injury last to start camp but was cleared after missing very little time. He will play the 2021 season on the franchise tag after he and the Jets failed to reach a long-term extension prior to the July 15 deadline. Maye has emerged as a cornerstone of the team's secondary and logged 88 tackles, 11 passes defensed and two interceptions across 16 games in 2020.

Jets' Marcus Maye: Placed on NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets are placing Maye on the non-football injury list for the start of training camp, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

This may be a product of tension between player and team, with Maye scheduled to play out 2021 under a franchise tag after negotiations on a long-term contract fell apart ahead of the July 15 deadline. The 28-year-old safety was a 16-game starter the past two seasons, and no injury has been reported so far this spring/summer. Still, it's possible this is unrelated to the contract, and merely a result of Maye suffering an injury while he was away from the team.

Jets' Marcus Maye: Doesn't reach extension agreement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maye and the Jets failed to reach a long-term contract agreement prior to Thursday's deadline for franchise-tagged players, Joey Chandler of reports.

Reports recently had surfaced that contract talks between Maye and the team had broken down, making it unlikely that a deal would be reached. He'll now play the 2022 season under the franchise tag and earn $10.6 million. It's possible that Maye holds out of training camp in an effort to be traded, though that may not be likely given that he attended the team's mandatory minicamp earlier in the offseason.

Jets' Marcus Maye: Unlikely to sign extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maye and the Jets aren't expected to agree on a long-term contract before Thursday's deadline for franchise-tagged players, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The team reportedly didn't respond to Maye's latest proposal, and the safety then retracted it. He's now expected to play out 2021 under a franchise tag for $10.6 million, though the Jets might explore trade possibilities if they're now feeling pessimistic about the prospect of re-signing Maye next offseason.

Jets' Marcus Maye: Accepts franchise tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maye has accepted his $10.6 million franchise tag with the Jets, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Maye will stick with the Jets on a $10.6 million salary for the 2021 season, though both sides still have until July 15 to come to terms on a multi-year extension. The 28-year-old safety has started all 16 games in three of four seasons with the Jets, and he set career-high marks in terms of tackles (88 total), pass breakups (11) and sacks (two) last season.

Jets' Marcus Maye: Receives franchise tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets placed the franchise tag on Maye on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Maye has averaged 4.9 tackles per game through four seasons, culminating in a career-high 88 stops in 2020. Through 54 career contests, the free safety also has accumulated six interceptions, four forced fumbles, 2.5 sacks and one fumble recovery. Assuming the Jets are unable to reach a long-term deal with Maye by July 15 and he puts pen to paper on the tag, he'll earn $10.5 million in the coming campaign, per Schefter.

Jets' Marcus Maye: Career-high 88 tackles in Year 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Marcus Maye: Ten tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Marcus Maye: Spectacular interception in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Marcus Maye: Another solid effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Marcus Maye: Ties for team lead in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Marcus Maye: Terrific debut in new role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Marcus Maye: Officially active
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Marcus Maye: Slated to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Marcus Maye: Questionable for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Marcus Maye: Limited in practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maye (calf) was a limited participant in Friday's practice, Rich Cimini of 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.

Jets' Marcus Maye: Downgraded Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maye (ankle/calf) didn't suit up for Thursday's practice, Rich Cimini of 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.

Jets' Marcus Maye: Bothered by calf
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Marcus Maye: Stayed healthy in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Marcus Maye: Sheds non-contact jersey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
