Byron Maxwell signing with Seattle Seahawks, per reports
CHARLOTTE – The Seattle Seahawks are signing former Miami Dolphins cornerback Byron Maxwell for the rest of the season, according to multiple reports.
Maxwell was a member of the famed Legion of Boom in Seattle between 2011 and 2014. In his final season in Seattle, Maxwell started 12 games, spring-boarding into a big free-agent deal with the Philadelphia Eagles.
And so Seattle loses CB Richard Sherman and now will try to bolster its LOB with former LOBer Byron Maxwell.
But Maxwell lasted only one season in Philadelphia, shipped off to Miami along with Kiko Alonso in what amounted to salary dumps. Maxwell played down the stretch for Miami last season, helping the team into the playoffs, but was cut after starting only two games, replaced by rookie Cordrea Tankersley.
In Seattle, Maxwell will attempt to fill the void left by injured Richard Sherman, out for the season with an Achilles injury. Seattle’s signing of Maxwell does not impact Miami’s salary cap situation.
