Byron Maxwell, peacekeeper?

It would be a stretch to say Maxwell is going to solve the problems in Southwest Asia, but he’ll at least have a chance to cheer up U.S. troops and their families during an upcoming weeklong NFL-USO tour.

Maxwell, a Dolphins cornerback, will make the trip, the NFL announced Thursday, with Titans tight end Delanie Walker and Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan (not to be confused with retired Dolphins tight end Jordan Cameron).

For security reasons, the exact dates and three countries to be visited are not being released.

The trip will include military-themed athletic competition and meetings with leadership at four locations.
