Report: Byron Maxwell signs one-year deal with Seahawks

A look at how the Seattle Seahawks 2017 season has gone, and what is coming up.

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.
