And to begin negotiations for the big extension for COX.

These guys have proven themselves, the defense has drastically iomproved since a year ago, and we need to lock them up for a few year.

There's nobody to take Cox's place and he's a drafted Eagle. Cox has to come before Thurmond and Carroll especially because there's Rowe. They both deserve it and it would make the secondary deeper and better, but Cox is a beast!

I agree, except that Cox is under contract through next year. Caroll and Thurmond are not.

You're right ... I thought he was a FA. This year he's getting $1.8 mil next year he gets $7.8 mil. I guess they can wait to extend him until next year this time.

I mentioned extending Cox when Kendricks got his new deal. Based on the above I'd start talking to him as soon as this season is over.

Thurmond is worth an extension, but I'd hold off on Carroll for now. If he continues to play at his current level then we have a solid starter but if he regresses then I'd wait to see the alternatives in FA.

I would also like to extend Jenkins, he's proven to be the 2nd best, if not best player on this defense (next to Cox) and he's been a real leader for us. I could be wrong but isn't he a FA after this year?
