Seahawks signed sixth-round DB Byron Maxwell to a four-year, $2.15 million contract.
The Seahawks drafted Maxwell strictly to play special teams, and at 6-foot-1, 204 with 4.46 speed he should be able to get downfield on kickoff coverage awfully quickly. His rookie deal reportedly includes a $113,452 signing bonus. Thu, Jul 28, 2011 11:52:00 AM

Seahawks selected Clemson DB Byron Maxwell with the No. 173 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Maxwell, who goes 6-foot-1, 204, racked up 45 special teams tackles to rank among the all-time leaders in Clemson history. He only started eight out of 53 games as a Tiger, however, and his 4.46 clocking at the Combine is a bit of a myth considering Maxwell clears the 20-yard shuttle in 4.51 seconds. This is a straight-line speed prospect headed for a gunner role.
