Miami Dolphins cornerback Byron Maxwell channeled his inner Randy Moss in discussing why he elected to leave the Seattle Seahawks to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles a season ago.
“Cash flow, all day,” Maxwell said, via James Walker of ESPN.com.
While the statement may not have been as catchy as Moss’ “straight cash, homey,” it gets the point across all the same.
Maxwell left the Seahawks – who were coming off consecutive Super Bowl appearances – to sign a six-year, $63 million contract with the Eagles last year. Seattle made offers in an attempt to keep Maxwell, but he took the biggest payday possible being offered by the Eagles instead.
“They were close,” Maxwell said. “But I can’t make that back in my lifetime. So I had to go.”
Philadelphia subsequently traded Maxwell to Miami this offseason. He’ll make his Dolphins’ debut in Seattle against his former team on Sunday.
