Maxwell signed a one-year contract with the Seahawks on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell was cut loose by the Dolphins on Oct. 24 after an injury plagued start to the season, but will rejoin the "Legion of Boom" in Seattle, or at least, what's left of it. Richard Sherman (Achilles) is lost for the season while Kam Chancellor (neck) and Earl Thomas (hamstring) are also nursing injuries, severely testing the depth of the Seahawks' secondary. The 28-year-old's familiarity in the system should help minimize the transition period, but it can't be ignored that he has rarely looked like the same player since first leaving Seattle after the 2014 season.

The Dolphins released Maxwell (foot) on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

A key member of the Seahawks' "Legion of Boom" secondary from 2011 through 2014, Maxwell has failed to meet expectations since signing a six-year, $63 million contract with the Eagles in 2015. After a poor first season in Philadelphia, Maxwell was traded to the Dolphins in 2016 and wasn't able to bounce back, with hamstring and foot injuries this season not helping his cause. Maxwell missed his fourth straight game Sunday against the Jets and likely would have lost out on a starting role upon returning to full health, so the Dolphins decided to cut bait on the veteran cornerback, who will be replaced on the 53-man roster by quarterback David Fales. Once he's able to shake off the injury woes, Maxwell could generate interest elsewhere for teams in need of an experienced depth defensive back.

Maxwell (foot) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell will be unavailable for the fourth straight week, despite being able to put in full practices Wednesday through Friday. After the multi-game absence, the Dolphins may want to see Maxwell practice fully a few more times and rebuild his conditioning before clearing him to play again. Maxwell's next chance to take the field will come Thursday against the Ravens.

Maxwell (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, Armando Salguaro of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell -- who hasn't played since Week 2 -- has fallen out of favor with the Dolphins' coaching staff and isn't guaranteed to take the field even if he's cleared to play. He's been replaced by rookie Cordrea Tankersly in the starting lineup and there's no indication that will change anytime soon.

Maxwell (foot) practiced Wednesday without limitations and is in line to play Sunday against the Jets, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell was last active for a game in Week 2 against the Jets, where he notched four solo tackles and a forced fumble. When he's healthy, he plays nearly a full snap count, and if he can rack up more tackles, Maxwell will develop into a solid IDP option.

Maxwell (foot) is inactive for Sunday's game against Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell was limited in practice Friday and was a toss up heading into Sunday. His absence will open the door for Bobby McCain or Alterraun Verner to start at corner opposite Xavien Howard.

Maxwell (foot) is dealing with a foot injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell (hamsting) practiced with the Dolphins on Wednesday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell has had more downs than ups this season but should be ready to go versus the Falcons on Sunday. He is no longer considered to be the Miami top cornerback but is still a vital part of the secondary. The Dolphins will need all hands on deck in or order to keep the high flying Atlanta offense from lighting up the scoreboard.

Maxwell (hamstring) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Despite practicing in full the prior week, Maxwell will miss his second consecutive game. Third-year cornerback Bobby McCain will continue to see a heightened snap count in Maxwell's absence.

Maxwell (hamstring) was a full participant in Friday's practice but is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell practiced in a full capacity all week, so his questionable tag is likely just a precautionary one. Expect the cornerback to be a full go Wednesday against Tennessee.
