FLETCHER COX RUMORS & GOSSIP

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Fletcher Cox has a Chip on his shoulder

Too often we pay attention to the Xs and Os in football and neglect to take intangibles into account. Leadership, pride, motivation.

Fletcher Cox Cedric Thronton I just realized today that emerging defensive line star Fletcher Cox has a 5th-year option still remaining on his 2012 rookie contract with the Eagles.

We must unlearn what we have learned— Yoda’s advice to Eagles offense…

I can’t get over how far Fletcher Cox has progressed in the past half-season on the Eagles’ defensive line… Mychal Kendricks’ pass-rush penetration has given me new inspiration… I know we lost to the Seahawks…but I am feeling good about the lessons we learned from that game— and there’s still enough time left in 2014 to apply the acquired learning toward a big...

Who will make the cut on the Eagles defensive line?

Heading into the 2014 season, the Eagles sport one of the youngest and most athletic defensive lines in the NFL. However, the Eagles struggled to get pressure on the quarterback last year (tied for 20th in sacks with a mere 37). Because of this, one large point of emphasis will be increasing the number of “impact plays” as the players move into year two under defensive coordinator...
