Report: Eagles to sign Former Clemson DB


by - Assoc. Editor -

The Philadelphia Eagles saved some future cash in their war chest recently by trading away star running back LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills and it appears they are hoping of signing a big-time cornerback - former Clemson defensive back Bryon Maxwell and/or Patriots' safety Devin McCourty.

around $10 million per year which would make him the fourth-highest paid corner back in the NFL behind only Richard Sherman ($14 million), Patrick Peterson ($14 million) and Joe Haden (13.5 million).

Update 3 pm - Several media outlets are reporting that Maxwell has agreed to a 5 year - 53.5 million dollar deal with $25 million guaranteed with the Eagles.

Update 5:30 pm - "I'm going to Philly," Byron Maxwell told Josina Anderson of ESPN. He can officially sign with the Eagles on Tuesday at 4 pm EST.

The Eagles have the cap space of $18,954,544 (16th most in the NFL) and have the need to sign cornerbacks as they gave up 72 plays of 20+ yards or more.

The 27-year old Maxwell finished the season with 45 tackles, 12 pass deflections and three interceptions to help lead the Seahawks to another Super Bowl appearance.

NFL Free Agency will begin March 10.
