PFT – 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.
A CHANCE to make a maximum $10 million over four years? Jesus. Rookies got slaughtered in that new labor agreement. Rookies are like anyone under 25 in America: getting screwed by the older generation without a damned thing they can do about it.
Walk Hard, Fletcher Cox.
