Default Worst player in the NFL?

Quote:
The Buffalo Bills defense is ranked last in the NFL in points allowed. The unit has allowed the most rushing yards in the league. Its point differential is an NFL-worst -77. And, of course, the Bills are the only team in the NFL without a win. So if the Bills defense is the worst unit of the worst team in the league, does that mean the defense's worst player is also the worst player in the entire NFL?

[Related: The biggest draft busts of the decade]

Evidently, according to Jerry Sullivan of the Buffalo News. In a Thursday column, Sullivan says second-year linebacker Aaron Maybin(notes) is the worst player in the NFL because he can't get on the field for the Bills defense:

It's quite possible that Maybin is the worst player in the NFL (though a case could be made for John McCargo(notes), another former Bills' first-rounder who has been inactive all six games).

There's a good chance Maybin will be inactive again this week [he wasn't activated last week in Baltimore, the first time that has happened in his pro career] against Kansas City, the NFL's top rushing team. After a year and a half, he hasn't gotten better. If anything, he's regressed. Maybin has 21 tackles in 21 games. He has no sacks. This season, he's been on the field for 66 plays, with few tangible results.

The Bills gave Maybin a $15 million signing bonus after his holdout in 2009. That's not the sort of return on investment that made capitalism great. If Maybin were some seventh-round pick -- like, say, Ryan Fitzpatrick(notes) or Stevie Johnson -- he'd be long gone by now.

Maybin was the 11th pick of the 2009 draft. He's already been moved from defensive end to linebacker, but hasn't found his role in the Bills' new 4-3 scheme. Coaches won't put him on special teams and undrafted rookies are getting more playing time than him.

I remember being so happy that John McCargo was traded to the Colts a couple years ago.

*SIGH*

I sure wish he passed his physical then.

Not a bad second choice if you ask me.

I think it really depends on what we have when Cushing comes back. Until we see him on the field again and playing like he did last year I'll be hesitant to say we made the right choice.

When does Brian come back? I forget.

He'll be back next year. I guess he can't seem to shake this ill-famed sophomore slump. I say room him with Neil Rackers. Neil can flat out get to the ball from the opposite ends of the field! Maybe he can shed some of that hustle magic back over to Cushing.

Cushing done lost his mojo.

I like this writer, he's not afraid to be critical of the team. I wish we had writers in Houston that would be critical of the team instead of guys that stand in line to drink the red kool-aid. If we had guys like this, ones that told the truth, then more people might be upset with McNair and demand some changes. Maybin came from Penn St., who was the last good player to come from Penn St.?

LaVarr Arrington, wanted mo' money so he went to the Skins' where he ended his career due to injury. On the topic of Aaron Maybin, I think he was overrated coming out of college. Grossly undersized as a DE IMO (6'4" 248-lbs), I compared him as the next Manny Lawson...good college career, doesn't translate into the NFL.
