Byron Maxwell returns to Seattle a few weeks before Eagles-Seahawks game

New, comments

The Eagles will be seeing a familiar face soon.

Byron Maxwell is back where he started. Following a season-ending Achilles injury to star cornerback Richard Sherman, the Seahawks have brought Maxwell back to Seattle.

Maxwell was a disappointment at his last two NFL stops. The Philadelphia Eagles traded him away one year after signing him to a long-term contract. After one year starting for Miami, the Dolphins benched him and then cut him last month.

Maybe the 29-year-old corner can get back to playing well now that he’s back with the Seahawks. That’s where Maxwell made himself into a top free agent corner.

We’ll see. Literally.

We will see Maxwell on the field when the Eagles travel to Seattle in Week 13 to play the Seahawks. That’s good news for the Eagles if he plays like the Maxwell who was prone to getting beat in coverage.

Seriously, though, that figures to be a tough game for the Eagles. Seattle hasn’t look great recently, sure, but they’re still 42-7 in their last 49 home games.
