MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Aaron Maybin is a Toronto Argonaut.

The former first-round draft pick of the NFL's Buffalo Bills joined the CFL club's practice roster Sunday, three days after watching Toronto's 36-21 home win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. With that victory, the Argos (11-6) cemented top spot in the East Division and a bye to the conference final Nov. 17 at Rogers Centre versus either the Hamilton Tiger-Cats or Montreal Alouettes.

The Argos will conclude their regular season Friday night hosting Montreal (7-10), which assured itself of a third-place finish in the East following a 27-24 loss to Hamilton (9-8) on Saturday. Maybin is expected to suit up against the Alouettes.

Toronto also added import kicker-punter Quinn Sharp to its practice roster while releasing defensive lineman Auston English.

The six-foot-four, 237-pound Maybin, a former All-American linebacker at Penn State, had been out of football since August when he was released by the Cincinnati Bengals.

Maybin, 25, spent two seasons with Buffalo (2009-10) before being released. He signed with the New York Jets in August 2011 but was let go in November 2012. He signed with Cincinnati on Jan. 25 before being released Aug. 18.

Maybin had 36 tackles, six sacks and five forced fumbles over his NFL career.
