Eagles, Dolphins talking Byron Maxwell trade

Julio Jones,Byron Maxwell


The Eagles are looking to unload another remnant of the Chip Kelly era.

This time it’s cornerback Byron Maxwell, whom Kelly signed to a six-year, $63 million contract a year ago. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Eagles and Dolphins are discussing a trade that would send Maxwell to Miami.

The Dolphins have been looking to add another big-name piece to their defense, having already visited with free agent defensive end Mario Williams. Maxwell would upgrade Miami’s secondary, but it would come at a cost: The 28-year-old Maxwell has an $8.5 million base salary this year and a $10 million base salary next year.

Maxwell started 14 games for the Eagles last season.
