NFL: Denver Broncos at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Fletcher Cox is being sued for allegedly having sexual relations with a married woman, according to a report from TMZ Sports. The woman’s husband, a North Carolina resident, is claiming that Cox ruined their marriage.

Josh claims he's got hardcore proof that the 6'4", 310 pound defensive tackle seduced and banged his wife behind his back while she was on a work trip to Pennsylvania back in April.

Jeffords claims Cox continued the relationship via text messages -- which Josh now has -- and he says it's smoking gun proof that Cox is liable for "alienation of affection" ... which you can sue for in N.C.

Lots of pun opportunities here.

TMZ reports the N.C. resident is suing Cox for “more than $25,000.” That’s essentially the equivalent of being fined for a dirty hit in the NFL. Note that the 26-year-old defensive lineman signed a six-year, $102.6 million contract extension with the Eagles in June 2016.

We’ll see what comes of this dispute, if anything at all.
