Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox was named by his peers as the 38th-best player in the league on the NFL Network Top 100 Players of 2017 on Monday night.
It's the second year in a row that Cox has been honored on the show. Entering 2016, Cox was ranked No. 49 on the list. Cox is the fourth Eagle to be named to the Top 100 joining defensive end Brandon Graham (No. 93), safety Malcolm Jenkins (No. 90), and running back LeGarrette Blount (No. 80).
Cox led the Eagles with 6.5 sacks in 2016. He had 53 tackles including 10 for loss. The team's first-round pick in 2012 ranks fifth in franchise history among interior defensive linemen with 28.5 sacks.
He sure is making a name for himself on and off the football field. You never know where Fletcher Cox will pop up next...
