The Philadelphia Eagles and six-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Fletcher Cox have agreed on a $10 million, one-year contract, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the team hasn’t announced the agreement.
A first-round pick in 2012, Cox has been one of the league’s best inside defensive linemen for a decade. Cox has 65 sacks in 11 seasons, including seven in 2022 for the league’s No. 2 ranked defense.
Keeping Cox helps the NFC champion Eagles offset the loss of defensive tackle Javon Hargrave in free agency.
Philadelphia also has lost linebackers T.J. Edwards and Kyzir White and safety Marcus Epps to other teams.
