There's a retirement looming... maybe. We've been discussing this for a while, and no, it isn't Jason Kelce. We mean that Philadelphia Eagles legend that plays on the other side of the football. Like Kelce, Fletcher Cox is one of three Birds who have played for Andy Reid, Chip Kelly, Doug Pederson, and Nick Sirianni. Brandon Graham is the other. Like Kelce, Fletch has been rumored to be spending more time thinking about life after football.

Both Kelce and Fletch have been the subject of retirement discussions. The latter, however, may be closer than the former.

Per report, Fletcher Cox's retirement could come sooner rather than later.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Fletcher Cox may announce his retirement at some point this offseason. If he is correct, we have borne witnesses to one of the greatest Eagles careers of recent memory. Regardless of what happens, we tip our caps to an icon.

A Super Bowl champion (LII) and former 2012 PFWA All-Rookie Team member, Fletch earned
First-Team All-Pro honors in 2018. Thanks to some dude named Aaron Donald, however, he was a Second-team All-Pro three times (2014, 2015, 2017).

He found his way onto six Pro Bowl rosters (2015–2020). He's a member of the NFL 2010s All-Decade Team. Something tells us he'll be a member of the Philadelphia Eagles Hall of Fame. Canton is probably going to be calling as well. That's a safe bet because, with his resume, it's safe to say there's a high possibility that his bust will be carved and placed in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
