Fletcher Cox held a conference call with Philadelphia reporters last night and the newest Eagles told the fans that they should be excited he's coming to town.

"The fans and the coaches and everybody in Philly should be excited about me because I’ll bring excitement with me to Philadelphia. I’m a guy with a great attitude, hard-working and a guy that never quits and always competes."

One of the questions a newly drafted player is always asked is whether he knew he'd be drafted by the team he was. Cox says he was certain he'd be an Eagles when both God and his agent thought he'd be a good fit in the system.

"If you really want to know the truth, I prayed and asked God where he wanted me to be. [My agents], they asked me what scheme I liked the most and I looked and told them, ‘Philadelphia Eagles. I would love to play in that system.’ They both agreed with me that I would fit great in that defensive scheme."

And as we know from Jim Washburn "When God made him, he made him to be in this system right here." so of course God would agree that he belongs here.
