Marcus Maye

Michael Nania reviews Marcus Maye’s 2020 New York Jets season in an in-depth fashion using Nania’s All-22 film session. 

Career recap: After taking Jamal Adams with the sixth pick in the 2017 Draft, the New York Jets completed their safety duo of the future by selecting Marcus Maye with their second-round pick, 39th overall.

Adams was to be the jack-of-all-trades Swiss army knife, roaming around the field and making an impact wherever needed. Behind him, Maye would provide a sturdy backbone, giving the Jets a secure last line of defense in the deep middle that would allow them to feel comfortable moving Adams around the field. It was a match made in football heaven.

Both safeties started all 16 games for the Jets in their rookie season. Behind Demario Davis, Adams ranked second the team with 1,101 defensive snaps (98.7%), while Maye placed third with 1,064 (95.3%). Maye played 100% of the defensive snaps in 14 games. He missed a mere two snaps in the Jets’ Week 6 loss to New England and only played 41% of the snaps in the team’s meaningless season finale loss (also against New England), but otherwise was out there for every single defensive play.
