This is not a rumor propagated by Jimmy Kempski, who never tells you who is giving him info or wild-ass rumors.
This is straight from the horse’s mouth:
“I’m going to Philly,” Byron Maxwell told ESPN.com.
The Seahawks made a last-ditch effort to bring Maxwell back to Seattle rather than have him go to Philly, sources told ESPN, but it was half-hearted.
Maxwell, 27, was a sixth-round draft choice out of South Carolina by the Seattle Seahawks in 2011.
He took over as a starter in the final five games of the 2013 season and had four interceptions, playing so well that the Seahawks didn’t make an effort to re-sign starting cornerback Brandon Browner or backup Walter Thurmond.
Except for three games when he was out with an injury, Maxwell was a starter all season in 2014. Maxwell had two interceptions and 12 passed defensed in 2014. He played both the outside corner spot and the nickel back spot at different times last season.
