The Seattle Seahawks and Cornerback Byron Maxwell have reportedly agreed to a one-year deal worth up to $3 million. Maxwell was a free-agent at the end of the 2017 season and returns to Seattle for a third tenure. Seattle drafted Maxwell in the sixth round of 2011 draft and his longest tenure with Seattle was from 2011-15. Maxwell and the Seahawks reunited last season where he signed a one-year deal in November, starting six games for Seattle. Prior to last season, Maxwell spent time in Philadelphia with the Eagles and in Miami with the Dolphins. Arguably his best season came in 2013 when Maxwell started 16 games and recorded four interceptions.
