Last week, Doug Pederson put a timetable on when a new deal for Fletcher Cox would come.

“I’m fully confident that something will be done before [training] camp,” he said last Tuesday.

And he was right. Earlier tonight, the Eagles and the 25-year-old defensive tackle agreed to terms on a six-year contract extension that will keep him in Philadelphia until 2022. The deal is reportedly worth $103 million, with $63 million guaranteed, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Cox will reportedly earn at least $17 million per year, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

That $63 million in guaranteed money is the highest amount for a non-quarterback in NFL history.

In his fifth year, Cox recorded a team-high 9.5 sacks and forced three fumbles. He made his first Pro Bowl last season, and also made AP’s All-Pro 2nd Team for the second straight year. He’s started every game since 2013, his second season in the NFL.
