Philadelphia Eagles defensive lineman Fletcher Cox has released a statement after showing up for Eagles mandatory minicamp on Monday.

"I’m happy to be back in Philadelphia to get back to work with my teammates and coaches," Cox said. "I’m excited for this upcoming season and I can’t wait to get on the field for mini-camp this week, learn our new defense, and do whatever I can to help our team win."

"Any discussion about my absence from the offseason program or my contract will be handled privately between me, my agent and the Eagles organization."

Cox skipped all of Philadelphia's voluntary offseason workouts this season. This statement indicates he won't be talking about why he decided to skip practice.

The 25-year-old defensive lineman has been in contract negotiations with the Eagles and the two are expected to agree on a lucrative deal at some point in the future. It's presumed to be just a matter of when.
