The Dolphins are slated to acquire Maxwell, along with Kiko Alonso and the 13th overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft from the Eagles in exchange for the eighth overall pick in the draft, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

For a time Wednesday morning, there was talk that the deal may be off due to reported concerns about Maxwell's shoulder, but evidently the Dolphins' medical staff cleared the cornerback, and he's now slated to join the 2016 Miami secondary. In his only season with the Eagles after signing a six-year, $63 million deal with the team, the 28-year-old recorded 64 tackles and two interceptions in 14 games.

Maxwell and teammate Kiko Alonso are slated to join the Dolphins via trade, pending physicals, NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell is fresh off signing a six-year, $63 million contract with the Eagles last March, but after underperforming in 2015, he'll now be sent to the Dolphins. While it's likely Maxwell will have to restructure his lucrative deal, him joining the Dolphins also figures to result in Miami releasing fellow cornerback Brent Grimes. That situation would allow Maxwell to occupy the Dolphins' No. 1 cornerback position, as he aims to prove he's capable of striving in such a role after falling flat of expectations in Philadelphia.

Maxwell is the subject of currently ongoing trade talks between the Eagles and Dolphins, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell endured some high-profile hiccups after signing an eye-opening six-year, $63 million deal with the Eagles last offseason. As Philadelphia's new coaching regime looks to start fresh, cutting ties with someone like Maxwell is understandable. Despite his recent struggles in coverage, Maxwell is coming off a career-best 64 tackles, and could be motivated for a bounce back season as a needed addition to Miami's secondary.

Maxwell (quadriceps) is active for Sunday's game against the Saints, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell logged full practices Thursday and Friday and was listed as probable heading into Sunday's game, so his status was never really in peril. The cornerback has been victimized in coverage frequently in his first season in Philadelphia, but it's probably helped his cause for fantasy purposes. Since he's being heavily targeted, Maxwell has received ample opportunity to rack up the stops, as his 23 tackles through four games put him on pace to blow past his career-best mark in that category.

Maxwell (quadriceps) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell logged full practices Thursday and Friday, after sitting out Wednesday's session. He's on pace for a career-best 92 tackles, but it will be a big surprise if he actually reaches that number, as his 10-tackle game against Julio Jones and the Falcons was an obvious outlier. Of course, if he continues to struggle in coverage, Maxwell will probably see far more targets than what was expected heading into the year.

Maxwell (shoulder) will likely be able to play in Sunday's game against the Saints, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell injured his quad during the first quarter of Sunday's loss to the Redskins, allowing rookie Eric Rowe to work in an every-snap role. If Maxwell doesn't end up playing in Week 5, Rowe will likely get the start.

Maxwell (quad) is questionable to return Sunday against the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

The Eagles have been struggling mightily in the secondary, and the defense is likely to struggle badly if he can't return. EJ Biggers should take over for him in the lineup.

Maxwell was beaten for a late-game touchdown in Sunday's 20-10 loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell, once considered a possible DB1 in IDP leagues, has looked pedestrian at best and brutal at worst in his first two games with the Eagles. Julio Jones torched Maxwell in Week 1, and Brandon Weeden tossed a game-sealing 42-yard touchdown pass to Terrance Williams against Maxwell in Week 2. He has very little fantasy value right now, and it doesn't look promising moving forward.

Maxwell's deal with the Eagles is for six years and $63 million, of which $25M is fully guaranteed, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

With Maxwell headed to the Eagles to start at right cornerback, the Seahawks quickly replaced him by signing Cary Williams, who Philadelphia released last week.
