Aaron Maybin is now a Cincinnati Bengal, according to a tweet from the linebacker's personal account.  The move comes after four mostly unsuccessful seasons with the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets.

Maybin, the 11th overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, has struggled mightily since joining the league, and is widely considered to be a draft "bust" at this point in his career. Maybin's palying time dwindled through his first two seasons in Buffalo, and continued to decline in the last two years with the Jets.

However, the Bengals could present a welcome change of scenery for the 24-year-old, who was named first team All-Big Ten and an All-American with the Penn State Nittany Lions in 2008.
