Sea­hawks sign Maxwell and place Sher­man, Pro­sise on IR

Times Colonist - - Sports -

The Seat­tle Sea­hawks have signed vet­eran cor­ner­back By­ron Maxwell to help make up for the loss of Richard Sher­man to a sea­so­nend­ing Achilles ten­don in­jury.

Seat­tle for­mally an­nounced Maxwell’s sign­ing Tues­day and placed Sher­man on in­jured re­serve. Maxwell knows Seat­tle’s sys­tem af­ter start­ing his ca­reer with the Sea­hawks and be­com­ing a starter dur­ing the 2013 sea­son.

Maxwell signed with Philadel­phia in free agency af­ter the 2014 sea­son, but lasted just one year with the Ea­gles and was traded to Mi­ami be­fore the 2015 sea­son. Maxwell lost his start­ing job in Mi­ami to rookie Cor­drea Tanker­s­ley early this sea­son and had been in­ac­tive the past four weeks prior to his re­lease.

Seat­tle also placed run­ning back C.J. Pro­sise on in­jured re­serve with an an­kle in­jury and signed run­ning back Mike Davis from the prac­tice squad. Pro­sise in­jured an an­kle in Seat­tle’s win over Ari­zona last week.
