Philly fans currently hate Byron Maxwell's shoulder.

When the Eagles agreed to a trade that would send Byron Maxwell and Kiko Alonso to the Dolphins in return for some sort of draft pick compensation, some cautioned that Alonso would have to pass his physical before the trade could become official.

It turns out Alonso wasn't the one to worry about. Rather, Maxwell's shoulder was an issue for Miami, according to Ed Werder of ESPN:

Werder shortly thereafter tweeted that the Dolphins consider the deal dead.

The Eagles moving from 13 to 8 in the first round of the draft would have been an incredible return. Maxwell's failed physical can only be viewed as an enormous disappointment.

Maxwell missed the last two games last season with a shoulder injury he suffered against the Cardinals Week 15. After learning of the trade, Maxwell seemed to be happy he was heading to Miami.

Yeah, not so fast, Byron.

UPDATE #1: Jason LaCanfora of CBS reports that the Eagles do not consider the deal dead:

Miami Herald reporter Armando Salguero also says the deal is not dead:

Ugh. This is going to be a long day.

UPDATE #2: Albert Breer of NFL Network is reporting that there is still a good chance the deal happens.

We'll see if the Dolphins are able to weasel their way out of the 13-to-8 pick swap.
