Byron Maxwell was one play away from winning his second Super Bowl ring with the Seattle Seahawks.
Now, he'll chase it as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles after he agreed to terms on a six-year deal on the first day of free agency. He's been an active participant during the offseason conditioning program. Two months into his Eagles tenure, he likes the vibe both from the city as well as his new teammates.
The 2015 regular season will be here before we know it. The Eagles have already begun taking photos to be used during 2015 game broadcasts. Quarterbacks and running backs were the most recent groups to come through...
"I'm starting to get adjusted to Philadelphia. I love this city. I love the people around here. It's cool," Maxwell said. "I think we're going to do big things around here."
Once upon a time, Maxwell entered the league as a sixth-round draft pick - the 173rd overall selection of the 2011 NFL Draft. In the past three seasons, Maxwell was part of a Seattle team that won 36 regular season games, two NFC championships and Super Bowl XLVIII. Maxwell has become accustomed to winning and he didn't come to Philadelphia to settle for anything less.
"I'm more addicted to that feeling of getting another one. Winning is addicting. The fun is in the winning. I'm chasing after that," Maxwell said. "I'm excited about the season."
