A mainstay of the Eagles for 10 seasons, Fletcher Cox has been cut by the franchise according to NFL Media. The player was to receive a bonus of 18 million dollars at the end of the day. This maneuver therefore allows Philly to make a good saving, but at the cost of the departure of an executive, a prominent member of the champion team in 2017.
The two parties would however remain in contact for a possible return, at a lower cost to the franchise.
Multiple All Pro, Cox shone in the defense of the Eagles with in particular 443 tackles including 58 sacks, 13 forced fumbles and 3 defensive touchdowns.
Fletcher Cox was released by the #Eagles with a post-June 1 designation, sources say. At 4p, $18 million would have become fully guaranteed. Cox is now a free agent but the team and his representatives continue to have discussions about a possible return.
