He made the NFL Draft in 2011 and then played for several teams before returning to the Seahawks.

After a very successful high school career, he had to miss his graduation season due to injury. Nevertheless, many colleges were interested in him, including South Carolina, Virginia Tech, Georgia, Maryland, and Clemson, which he would choose.
As expected, he had a very good college career after which he decided to enter the 2011 NFL Draft and was selected by the Seattle Seahawks as the 173rd overall candidate and signed a 4-year contract with the team worth $2.15 million. While he would play for the team, he became a starter for the team until 2013, but he would suffer another injury the next season.
In 2015 he decided to move to the Philadelphia Eagles with $63 million where he would play for the team for the next 6 years. But then, in 2016, he went to the Miami Dolphins, after he had been traded to Kiko Alonso and selected for the 2016 NFL Draft. There he started 15 of the 16 games before he left the team.
In 2017, Maxwell returned to the Seattle Seahawks with a one-year contract to replace the injured Richard Sherman, who had suffered an Achilles fracture. In 2018 he signed another one-year contract.
