NFL: Cleveland Browns at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Fletcher Cox is a very rich man that was featured on a cool billboard in Philadelphia. He’s also a former great at Mississippi State. Now he’s continuing to prove his worth in the NFL and was tabbed with some honors for the month of September.

From the Philadelphia Eagles official website:

On Thursday morning, Cox was named September’s NFC Defensive Player of the Month.

Cox has been a solid defensive lineman since the Eagles drafted him with the 12th pick back in 2012, and he’s only been improving as time has gone on. A year ago he was an All-Pro selection. In the offseason he signed the largest contract for a non-quarterback. And now he has 11 tackles, 3 sacks, and a forced fumble through 3 games this season.
