Byron Maxwell will return to the Legion of Boom.
Maxwell, who was released by the Miami Dolphins in October, will join the Seattle Seahawks once again. The 29-year-old cornerback signed a one-year deal with Seattle on Monday, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Maxwell is expected to fill a void for the Seahawks at the cornerback position, as Seattle lost star corner Richard Sherman to a ruptured Achilles on Thursday against the Arizona Cardinals. Sherman will undergo surgery and is expected to miss the remainder of the season.
Maxwell, a sixth-round pick in 2011, was a member of the Seahawks secondary from 2011-2014. The veteran corner started opposite Sherman and played a huge role during the Seahawks’ back-to-back Super Bowl appearances in the 2013 and 2014 seasons.
During his two seasons as a starter in Seattle, Maxwell had 68 tackles, 27 passes defensed and six interceptions.
He signed as a free agent with the Eagles in 2015 and was traded a year later to Miami, where he started 13 games in 2016.
