New York Jets and Saints Safety Marcus Maye Signs with Miami Dolphins to Revitalize Pass Defense

Dolphins Acquire Marcus Maye, Former Saints Safety, in Recent Signing: Report

Jordan Schultz of Bleacher Report reported that former New York Jets and New Orleans Saints safety Marcus Maye has signed with the Miami Dolphins. With this new opportunity, Maye will compete on one of the AFC’s top teams. The Saints released him earlier in the offseason due to salary cap constraints and his lack of availability due to injuries and a suspension.

Despite being touted as a replacement for Marcus Williams, Maye’s performance never quite met expectations, as he missed as many games as he played during his two years with the Saints. In Miami, he will be vying for playing time against veterans like Jordan Poyer as he looks to make an impact on the Dolphins’ secondary.

The Dolphins’ pass defense struggled last season, allowing the seventh-most touchdown catches in the league. With Maye now in the mix, Miami is hoping to shore up their defensive backfield and improve their performance in the upcoming season.

Originally published on Saints Wire, Maye’s move to Miami will be closely watched as he looks to make his mark on his new team.
