RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Maiava was able to record 34 tackles and one forced fumble in 16 games, including six starts, in 2011. The former fourth-round pick out of Southern California got increased opportunities at the end of the season when Scott Fujita was lost to injury. Maiava, along with rookie linebacker James-Michael Johnson, is a possible place-holder to start 2012 as Fujita serves his three-game "BountyGate" suspension. Thereafter he will add depth to the linebacking group and contribute on special teams.
He has some potential down the road, but will need some grooming before he is considered a starter. Still, he will be an active presence on special teams and will be a serviceable backup in his second season.
