The Philadelphia Eagles will trade cornerback Byron Maxwell, along with linebacker Kiko Alonso, to the Miami Dolphins when the league year begins Wednesday. Here are five things to know about the Dolphins’ newest cover man.
1. A native of North Charleston, S.C., Maxwell was a two-sport star in college and earned a slew of collegiate offers despite missing his entire senior season with a torn ACL, which he suffered in a pick-up basketball game.
3. Seen as a project out of college, Maxwell slipped to the sixth round. The Seahawks took him with the 173rd overall pick.
