Fletcher Cox Earned Himself a Huge Contract Extension

Former Mississippi State defensive lineman Fletcher Cox signed quite an impressive deal with the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday.

Fletcher Cox, a former Mississippi State great, signed a HUGE six-year contract extension with the Philadelphia Eagles yesterday.

Fletcher's deal with the Eagles, going through 2022, is for $102 MILLION. That's a lot of money. He's also getting $63 MILLION guaranteed on this deal. Which is a lot of money by itself. I'm willing to bet that's more than most of us will ever see at any point in our lifetimes.

Congrats, Fletcher. You've come a long way since you stepped on campus from your hometown of Yazoo City. You played against some of the best competition for the Maroon and White. And now you're off living your dreams. Good luck, and don't tackle Dak too hard.
