After devastating injury to Richard Sherman, Seahawks bring in former Super Bowl champion to replace him

Must be nice.

The Seattle Seahawks have been badly banged up this season and lost cornerback Richard Sherman for the season after he ruptured his Achilles against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday night. Now, it looks like the Seahawks are bringing in a familiar face to replace him and help keep their playoff aspirations afloat.

Maxwell was an original member of the Legion of Boom and won a Super Bowl team with the team when he played with them for a few years. He was most recently with the Dolphins where he was traded to from Philadelphia before the 2016 season. He appeared in only two games for the Dolphins this season before being released.

He should be a perfect fit as he knows the team's schemes and defensive tendencies having been there for so many years and the team keeping the same head coach in all that time.
