“Again I’m more concerned for Marcus and what we’ll do defensively to undertake to fill that void. He’s an incredible young man and he’s done everything we’ve asked him to try to to . I’m sick for him.”
Maye is playing on the franchise tag by the Jets, in order that they can’t reach an extension with him until after the season.
