Seahawks sign cornerback Byron Maxwell

Prosise on injured reserve. 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.

Byron Maxwell had originally been a sixth-round pick by the Seahawks in the 2011 NFL Draft and had spent the first four years of his career before signing a six-year, $63 million deal with the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2015 offseason.

Carroll also told the radio station that Sherman is scheduled to have surgery on his ruptured Achilles this week. Maxwell played two games this season with the Miami Dolphins before he was released in October. The 29-year-old cornerback signed a one-year deal with Seattle on Monday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Coach Pete Carroll said during the preseason that Davis had the ability to be either an early-down back or fill the two-minute/third-down back role that Prosise has typically held (Davis had 70 receptions during his SC career and 10 for 63 yards in his two seasons with the 49ers). As a rookie, Prosise posted 172 yards on 30 carries and one touchdown along with 208 yards on 17 receptions. The second-year tailback out of Notre Dame has received minimal work in a limited amount of time this season, taking 11 carries for 23 yards.

Davis was a fourth-round pick of the 49ers in 2015 out of SC. He was claimed by the Seahawks this past May and was relegated to the practice squad prior to the regular season.
