Eagles One of the Favorites to Land Free Agent Byron Maxwell
With the NFL combine in the books, free agency, which begins March 10, is the next big event on the NFL calendar.
Many look at Maxwell as the man to replace Bradley Fletcher for the Eagles who prioritize big, physical press corners. Maxwell certainly fits the bill at 6-foot-1, 207 with long arms and plus speed. According to NFL Draft Analyst and the Publisher of DraftInsider.net, Tony Pauline Maxwell is looking for $10 million annually.
While Seattle GM John Schneider has said the Seahawks want to keep him, that price tag might be too much for them to pay.
So where are some likely landing spots?
"Jacksonville, Philadelphia probably," ESPN's John Clayton told 710 ESPN in Seattle on Friday. "They would be the two main teams and I think Jacksonville might pay him $8 million a year, so there is no way he is staying, he is not getting $8 million here (in Seattle). I think he is going to end up in Jacksonville or with the Philadelphia Eagles"
