Eagles legend Fletcher Cox is a sure-fire, first-ballot Hall of Famer.

Years of battling double-team blocks and having 300-pound offensive linemen lean on him for four quarters has definitely taken its toll on Fletcher Cox. Towards the end of his career, he clearly hasn’t been the same player that we were introduced to when the Eagles selected him 12th-overall during Round 1 of 2012’s NFL Draft, but he’s been a warrior.

Cox has been voted a First-team All-Pro once (2018). Some guy named Aaron Donald kept him and several other of the NFL’s best defensive tackles of their era from earning a few more. There’s no need in making a huge fuss though. Number 91’s run has been one few can match.

He’s a three-time Second-Team All-Pro (2014, 2015, 2017). He’s also earned a spot on six Pro Bowl rosters (2015–2020).

See? We told you that Andy Reid loved taking those offensive and defensive linemen in the NFL Draft. He struck gold in a major way here, landing a young man that would become an eventual member of the NFL 2010s All-Decade Team. Fletch’s spot in Canton as a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame is guaranteed.
