Alvin Keels of Paramount Sports and Entertainment, the firm that represents Byron Maxwell, has tweeted that the Miami Dolphins' staff has cleared Maxwell.

This will clear the way for the Eagles' reported trade of Maxwell and Kiko Alonso to Miami to finalize.
According to Jeff Darlington of NFL Network (who formerly covered the Dolphins), the trade compensation is as follows:
|Eagles get||Dolphins get|
|8th overall pick||13th overall pick|
Les Bowen of the Daily News confirmed Keels' announcement, and is reporting that the terms of the trade will not change.

If indeed the terms of the trade as reported by Darlington are correct, that is an absolutely tremendous deal for the Eagles.
