Seattle Seahawks Sign Cornerback Byron Maxwell

Seattle Seahawks Sign Cornerback Byron Maxwell”

Schefter is reporting that Maxwell's contract is a one-year deal.

After all-pro cornerback Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks ruptured his Achilles Tendon last Thursday night against the Arizona Cardinals, the Seahawks will turn toward former Legion of Boom member Byron Maxwell for depth at corner.

Maxwell had an up-and-down first season with the Dolphins in 2016. After being on the free agent market for a few weeks, Maxwell will return to the team where his career began.

But Maxwell lasted only one season in Philadelphia, shipped off to Miami along with Kiko Alonso in what amounted to salary dumps. While he finished with 53 tackles, two interceptions and 15 passes defensed, he was benched for inconsistent play.

Signing Maxwell was a no-brainer decision for the Seahawks.

Maxwell started all three of the Seahawks' playoff games that season and was in the starting lineup when they routed the Denver Broncos 43-8 in Super Bowl XLVIII. The former sixth-round pick from Clemson spent the first four years (2011-2014) of his National Football League career in Seattle, before landing a six-year, $63.5 million contract from the Philadelphia Eagles during the 2015 offseason. He was cut by the Dolphins in October after appearing in only two games in 2017. After Week 3, Maxwell was benched again for rookie cornerback Cordrea Tankersley.

The Seahawks (6-3) will play host to the Falcons on Monday Night Football on November 20.
