The Eagles announced on Thursday that they would be releasing Fletcher Cox’s stand-out defensive gear, which has been a mainstay in the middle of the defensive since the team picked it up in the first draft round in 2012.
While Cox can now sign any team, the Eagles are reportedly working on a reunion.
Cox, the twelfth player selected this year when Howie Roseman swapped in the first round to wear a Mississippi state product, started 150 of 156 games in 10 seasons in Philadelphia. His career was one of many important events.
As an integral member of Philadelphia’s Super Bowl LII 2017 defense team, Cox was also selected to the 2010s NFL All-Decade Team. Cox is a four-time All-Pro pick, including first team honors in 2018 after registering Career Top 10.5 bags. His six career appearances in the Pro Bowl are the most Eagles DT history ever. Cox ranks fifth on the all-time franchise list (58.0, most according to DT), losing only Reggie White (124.0, 1985-92), Trent Cole (85.5, 2005-14), Clyde Simmons (76, 0, 1986-93). ) and Brandon Graham (59.0).
The Eagles currently include Pro Bowler Javon Hargrave, Milton Williams, Marlon Tuipulotu, Marvin Wilson and Renell Wren.
