Eagles, Dolphins discussing trade for Byron Maxwell


After just one year in the City of Brotherly Love, it looks like the Philadelphia Eagles are done with the love for cornerback Byron Maxwell.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Eagles are looking to trade Maxwell just one season after signing him to a six-year, $63 million contract. In fact, talks are ongoing with the Miami Dolphins about sending the corner to South Beach and the AFC East.

The Dolphins need help in the secondary, especially with Tom Brady still running the division. Bringing in someone like Maxwell, despite his contract and poor play in 2015, will still give Miami some sort of improvement over the current crop of defensive backs.

Maxwell has a base salary of $8.5 million in 2016, and $10 million in 2017.

Should a deal be reached, the Eagles will be even thinner at corner than they already are. But with a rebuild looking to be in the works in Philadelphia, unloading the contracts that former head coach Chip Kelly gave to players seems to be a pretty important step in the process.
