Quotable: Washburn On Fletcher Cox

The Eagles got themselves a country boy in Fletcher Cox.

“When God made him, he meant him to play in this system right here.”

That’s what a seemingly giddy Jim Washburn had to say about the newest member of the Philadelphia Eagles, Mississippi State defensive tackle Fletcher Cox.

By all accounts, this is a pick praised across the board. And Jason Babin and Trent Cole didn’t only get a beast on their side of the ball, they also got a hunting buddy.
