Eagles agree to contract with first-rounder Fletcher Cox


Add Philadelphia to the list of teams completing the signing of their draft class.

The Eagles announced they agreed to terms with first-round defensive tackle Fletcher Cox Monday.

The 12th overall pick will be able to make a maximum of $10.241 million over four years, per the slotted system for signing draft picks.

The Eagles traded up three spots in the first round to pick him, in hopes of shoring up the middle of their defense. He’s an excellent pass-rusher, and being able to work under veteran line coach Jim Washburn, could become an impact player quickly.

There are now 11 teams with all their draft picks under contract, and only 37 unsigned picks league-wide.
