Byron Maxwell playing lights out for Seahawks

(1/1/2014) With the Seahawks' secondary dealing with injuries and a suspension, cornerback Byron Maxwell started the final five games. The sixth-round pick in 2011 has played better than anyone could have predicted, with four interceptions, 10 passes defended and 11 tackles. He had never started a game before this season.
“Byron plays with so much confidence and he’s such a good player,” safety Chris Maragos told the team's website. “He’s got the prototypical body you want in a corner (6-1, 207 pounds). He tackles well. He covers well. He runs well. He’s really playing really, really well.”
