The top CB of this year's FA is headed to the division rival Eagles. He'll be joined there by Scot McCloughan-draft pick Frank Gore.
Byron Maxwell has told Josina Anderson as well as multiple Seahawks-teammates that he intends to sign with the Eagles on Tuesday. Maxwell figures to be paid like a top-end CB and enter the season as the Eagles #1 DB.
