Maxwell signed with Philadelphia in free agency after the 2014 season but lasted just one year with the Eagles and was traded to Miami before the 2015 season. Signing him was a logical move given the Seahawks' need for cornerback depth and Maxwell's familiarity with Seattle's defense, which will give him a chance to provide immediate help. Seattle's signing of Maxwell does not impact Miami's salary cap situation. Seattle was in need of a cornerback after losing Richard Sherman to a ruptured Achilles during their victory over the Arizona Cardinals.

Almost a full calendar year later, Maxwell was shipped to the Miami Dolphins.

Maxwell, a Clemson grad who was a sixth-round pick of the Seahawks in 2011, arrived in Seattle Sunday and had a meeting with the Seahawks Monday and has agreed to a one-year deal, according to reports.
