  • I'm seeing basically nothing about free agency interest in Byron Maxwell, except possibly from the Seahawks. He's 30 years old and was cut by the Eagles and Dolphins. For the Seahawks, it's good that interest in Maxwell appears to be low because that means they should be able to re-sign him for a bargain contract. He has shown to be more valuable to the Seahawks than to other teams in the league.

    Even when you include his play with the Dolphins last year (39.2 grade in two games), Maxwell was one of the Seahawks highest graded defenders last year (and our highest graded CB by PFF).
    Byron Maxwell - 84.0
    Richard Sherman - 82.7
    Justin Coleman - 81.8
    Shaquill Griffin - 77.2
    Neiko Thorpe - 70.7

    Aside from one bad game against the Jaguars, Maxwell had an impressive season. Then factor in that he had to re-learn and adjust to a new scheme, mid-season. His play only improved as time went on and he became more comfortable.

    Guys a solid tackler and a decent press corner. Some slips yes. Anyone been to some accountant classes? All business have a predicted money loss account. If that account isn't reached it is considered a plus for the company.

    Max is going to have his mishaps but if his previous stint with the Hawks and last season says anything,,,,, his positives far outweigh his negatives and IMHO I don't think any other team will appreciate him like we do. Also, this is where he is going to play his best game. He should know this.

    Hope that means a fair contract.

  • Walter Football (probably one of the worst sources of football evaluation) ranks Maxwell as the 32nd best free agent CB this year:

    Byron Maxwell was a huge bust with the Eagles and Dolphins. Miami cut him, and so Maxwell returned to his home. He actually played well with the Seahawks in the second go around. He can probably stay motivated with a short-term "prove it" deal.

    I wonder how much of the league views him this way. Some of the corners ranked ahead of him are a joke (*cough* Jeremy Lane *cough*).

  • I'm pretty sure they've lowballed Maxwell with an offer around $2,000,000 and he's waiting it out.

    Still think he does eventually go for it, though.

  • Multi-year would be nice. He wants the added security, and the Seahawks get a starting CB for relatively mid-level.

  • Yeah at the right numbers I certainly wouldn't be against a 2/3 year deal.

  • Maxie needs to be careful, the Acker visit causes me to think the team wants to fill the position and if he continues to dawdle he could find the team moving on from him.

    SOP for the team. They always fill as many holes as possible before the draft. Actually, most teams do this.

    Would be fine with Maxie hanging around, but we can't give him too much leverage.

  • I think that Maxwell showed us that he still has some tread left on his tires last season and I'm also confident that they are going to offer him enough to show him proper respect. I suspect that they have already reached an informal agreement and allowing Maxxie to explorer his options. Not many teams are willing to gamble to much on him based on past history. Maxxie is a true Seahawk, he knows it and he knows we know it too.
