Fletcher Cox Fined; Rolle Gets A Workout

The good news is that Fletcher Cox has not been suspended as a result of his actions during the Lions game. The bad news — for him — is that the rookie is getting hit in the wallet.

After review of the incident last week, Cox has been fined $21,000 for throwing a punch in the fourth quarter against Detroit following a Lions extra point.

“I got caught,” Cox said last week. “He threw a few punches but I retaliated and was the one that got caught. I talked to my agent and he didn’t think it was bad enough to get suspended but I will get fined for it, we know that.”

He was right.

In other news, former Eagles linebacker Brian Rolle had a workout with the Panthers on Tuesday, according to a source.

Rolle was released on October 2 and was replaced by linebacker Adrian Moten, who is no longer with the team. A sixth-round pick in 2011, Rolle started 13 games in his rookie campaign and ended with 42 tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and a fumble return for a touchdown. The decision to release him was in part motivated by the desire to improve special teams.

Former Eagles defensive coordinator Sean McDermott is the DC for Carolina.
