Pete Carroll: Seahawks' CJ Prosise (ankle) could return this season

15 November 2017

The Seattle Seahawks are signing the free-agent cornerback to a one-year deal, a source tells ESPN's Adam Schefter. Signing him was a logical move given the Seahawks' need for cornerback depth and Maxwell's familiarity with Seattle's defense, which will give him a chance to provide immediate help.

What the Seahawks value in Maxwell is his ability to cover. The 29-year-old was drafted by the Seahawks in 2011, and made 17 starts for the team in 2013 and 2014.

Sherman ruptured his Achilles during Thursday evening's win over the rival Arizona Cardinals.

But Maxwell lasted only one season in Philadelphia, shipped off to Miami along with Kiko Alonso in what amounted to salary dumps.

Prosise had been hampered by ankle injuries all season. The third-year player spent his first two seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, gaining 108 yards on 54 rushes in 14 games. After a strong 2016 campaign in Miami, Maxwell was released by the Dolphins in October after battling injuries and poor on-field play in 2017. He was then claimed by Seattle and emerged as the team's leading rusher in the preseason with 106 yards on 24 carries with a long of 38 while also catching five passes for 41 yards and a touchdown.

Davis was a fourth-round pick of the 49ers in 2015 out of SC.
