The Dolphins opened their offseason workouts on Monday, which means cornerback Byron Maxwell could officially start working with his new teammates and coaches after the trade that sent him from Philadelphia to Miami this offseason.
That trade was not lamented by many in Philadelphia due to Maxwell’s struggles on the field in 2015 after signing a big contract with the Eagles as a free agent. Maxwell won’t argue with those that believe he underperformed last season, but said Monday that he’s turned the page to a new season with a new team.
“We weren’t very good,” Maxwell said, via the Palm Beach Post. “I could’ve played better obviously. We left plays out on the field. I could’ve done some things better, things I’m going to work on. But that’s 2015. It’s time to go and move to 2016 and see where that takes me.”
There were also questions about Maxwell’s health when the deal was consummated and the hope in Miami is that the corner will be both healthy and a better fit in defensive coordinator Vance Joseph’s scheme than he was in Philly last year.
