Eagles making progress on deal to bring DL Fletcher Cox back

Fletcher Cox's separation from the Eagles might not last long.

Released by Philadelphia in a cost-saving cut, Cox and the Eagles have made progress on a deal to bring the defensive lineman back, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported Thursday evening -- hours after Cox's release.

The sides have discussed a one-year contract that would guarantee $14 million.

A six-time Pro Bowler across 10 seasons with the Eagles, Cox's previous $18 million in salary would have become fully guaranteed at 4 p.m. ET Thursday, bringing about his release. Garafolo reported then that while Cox was hitting free agency, the former All-Pro and the only NFL team he's ever played for were already in discussions to bring him back.

Cox's return trip is progressing nicely, but nothing's final yet.
