The Philadelphia Eagles may have Byron Maxwell in the fold, but the team is still in need of a cornerback to start opposite of him. According to Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com, the Birds could be looking to pair Maxwell with impending free agent cornerback Tramon Williams.

Williams, who turned 31 in March, is an eight-year NFL veteran who's been with the Green Bay Packers since 2007. The 5-11, 182 pound cornerback has made 99 starts in 127 career appearances. He's recorded 28 interceptions, 114 passes defensed, five forced fumbles, and 395 tackles in his career.

Williams is fairly durable. The veteran hasn't missed a single game in the past three seasons. He's only started less than 10 games in the first two years of his career.

The combination of Maxwell and Williams would be a significant upgrade over what the Eagles have had in recent seasons with Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher. The new potential pairing won't be cheap, however. Stay tuned to see how it plays out.
