Byron Maxwell is back with the Legion of Boom.
The Seattle Seahawks are signing the free-agent cornerback to a one-year deal, a source tells ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The move reunites Maxwell with the team that drafted him and it provides the Seahawks with a reinforcement at cornerback after losing Richard Sherman to a season-ending Achilles injury.
Maxwell worked out for the Seahawks on Monday. 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.
It’s unclear what exact role Maxwell will have in Seattle’s secondary. Jeremy Lane is the favorite to replace Sherman as the starter on the left side opposite rookie Shaquill Griffin, but Maxwell will give Seattle another option there.
