Eagles big boss Howie Boy Roseman met the media yesterday at the NFL combine in Indy and was effusive about Fletcher Cox:

“It’s a huge priority for us to keep Fletcher Cox. Our intention for Fletcher is to always be an Eagle. We’ve made that known to him. Sometimes these things don’t happen so quickly. We’ve been very fortunate to get five contracts done. But history says that’s probably the exception, not the norm.”

While the defensive lineman still has one year left on his rookie contract that will pay him just under $8 million — with a matching cap hit — in 2016, it’s clear the Eagles want to sign him long-term.

“For us, he’s a great player, so he’s going to get great player money,” Roseman said. “We’re not shy about saying that. It comes down to kind of structure and all the things that kind of complicate negotiations. But I think the intention is right from him and his representative and certainly from us and how we feel about him.”
