Fletcher Cox Signs 6-Year Deal With Eagles and Receives Biggest Guarantee of Any Non-QB In NFL History!

Eagles Sign Fletcher Cox to Six-Year $103 Million Contract With $63 Million in Guaranteed Money! 

According to Reuben Frank of CSNPhily.com, “the only players given more guaranteed money in their contracts in NFL history are Eli Manning ($65 million) and Philip Rivers ($65 million).”  

Buy, Fletcher, Buy
When Does the Eagles’ Fletcher Cox’s New Contract Extension Start, and How Much Per Year Will He Be Paid?

The extension kicks in beginning in 2017, and will pay Fletcher Cox an annual salary of $17.17 Million per year.

As of today, that is will be the second highest annual salary paid to any NFL defensive player, trailing only the Miami Dolphin's Ndamukong Suh, who is paid 19.625 Million a year.  

Philadelphia Eagles' Award Fletcher Cox With New Contract That Includes Most Guaranteed Money ($63 Million!!!) Ever Paid to an NFL Defensive Player 


The deal is worth $103 million with $63 million in guaranteed money, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. That means the Pro Bowl defensive lineman will have the highest guarantee for a non-quarterback in NFL history.

It makes me wonder....how much would these defenses be worth today?
