Reports: Seahawks bring back Byron Maxwell to help replace Richard Sherman at cornerback

Seattle also officially placed cornerback Richard Sherman on injured reserve and signed cornerback Byron Maxwell. During the 2015 free agency period, the 29-year-old defensive back hit pay dirt with the Philadelphia Eagles en route to signing a six-year, $63 million deal in his first home outside of Seattle.

Maxwell worked out for the team on Monday before signing the contract.

Former South Carolina standout Mike Davis has promoted from practice squad to the 53-man roster for the Seattle Seahawks, the team announced Tuesday.

That'll pave the way for the return of Maxwell, who spent time as a member of the Seahawks from 2011-12 to 2014-15.

DeShawn Shead has been considered another potential reinforcement, but coach Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN Seattle on Monday that he's hit "a bit of a plateau" in his recovery from a torn ACL that he sustained in the playoffs last January.

Sherman ruptured his Achilles in last week's win over the Arizona Cardinals and is out for the year. In the preseason, he led the Seahawks with 106 yards rushing and caught five passes for 41 yards.

By the end of the 2017 regular season, Prosise will have played just 11 of 32 possible games through 2 National Football League seasons.

Davis is former fourth-round pick by the San Francisco 49ers out of SC.
