Last offseason, the Philadelphia Eagles released star defensive tackle Fletcher Cox before to a one-year, $14 million deal just two days later. This time around, a release won't be necessary. On Wednesday, Cox and the Eagles reached a one-year, $10 million deal, according to ESPN.
The Eagles reportedly got a hometown discount from a franchise legend, as Adam Schefter reports that Cox turned down more lucrative offers to remain in Philly. The 32-year-old defensive tackle played in all 17 games in 2022, and recorded 43 combined tackles, 14 QB hits and seven sacks.
