Aaron Maybin just got a fresh start.

The former Jets outside linebacker tweeted Friday that he’s back in the NFL – this time with the Cincinnati Bengals.

“Blessed and highly favored! Just became the newest member of the Bengals. Humbled and hungry,” Maybin tweeted.

In 2011, he led the Jets with six sacks. But he was a nonfactor last season, registering just one tackle and zero sacks in eight games. Maybin found out he had been cut when he appeared at a team charity event in the Bronx back in November.

The 11th overall pick in 2009, Maybin has long been considered a “bust” among Bills fans after finishing with zero sacks in 26 games in Buffalo.
