After reporting to mandatory minicamp yesterday, Fletcher Cox released the following statement today:

“I’m happy to be back in Philadelphia to get back to work with my teammates and coaches. 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.”

After Doug Pederson addresses the media at noon today, the players will be made available from 12:15 p.m. to 1 p.m. Practice begins at 1:20.
