EAGLES GREAT FLETCH COX COULD BE GONE BY 4 PM TUESDAY!

By Max Harper

Tomorrow, November 2 at 4 pm, is the NFL trade deadline.

And Eagles boy wonder GM Howie Roseman has been getting calls.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, says teams have been calling the Eagles about Fletcher Cox:

“Teams have been contacting the Eagles about Cox, figuring they could take a run at him to see if they could get him for a mid- to late-round pick. On the heels of Cox airing grievances about the defense, teams have reacted. Cox is one of the core veterans GM Howie Roseman wants around, so he’s unlikely to part with him for anything less than a high pick.”

The Eagles would have to eat a lot of dead money if they traded Cox, which is another reason the Eagles would likely require higher compensation than most teams are probably going to be willing to cough up for a declining 30-year-old interior lineman.

Cox this season has just 11 tackles and 1 sack in 7 games and publicly voiced his frustration about his usage after the loss in Las Vegas last week.

The most obvious trade candidate is offensive tackle Andre Dillard, who is the odd tackle out now that Jordan Mailata has won the left tackle job.
