Fletcher CoxBy JOFFRE WASHINGTON
For the Herald
Much of the news out of Philadelphia surrounding the Eagles this season hasn’t been positive to say the least. After finishing 4-12 and at the bottom of the NFC East, the Eagles were one of several teams to fire their head coach (Andy Reid) earlier this week.
There is, however, one piece of news that is refreshing and it has to do with Yazoo City native Fletcher Cox.
After a standout 2012 rookie campaign in which he led all Eagle defensive linemen with 65 tackles (46 solo, 19 assists), Cox was named to the All-Rookie Team on Thursday.
“One of my goals was to start strong and finish strong and get better as the season went on,” said Cox. “I could really tell as the season progressed that I was learning and getting better. I could tell that I was more comfortable at becoming a professional athlete.”
