Wednesday morning, the trade appeared to be on hold while the Dolphins looked at Maxwell's shoulder injury.
After the corner was checked out by Miami doctors, Maxwell's agent, Alvin Keels, announced the defender was cleared.

While the trade seemed in limbo early Wednesday, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport noted that the trade was not off and it was described as similar to what happens in many trades, but the Dolphins wanted to make sure of what they were getting.
Maxwell ended the 2015 season on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, so the concerns of the 28 year old's shoulder aren't coming out of nowhere.
