What a beast at SAM linebacker. He was ineffective for years as a DB because pass coverage is not his strong suit and the position rarely allowed him to use his physicality, tackling prowess, and closing speed in positive ways. As a DB, if you're tackling a receiver, chances are he's made his catch and you were beaten on the play. Conversely, as a linebacker, Cox can roam the LOS like a hungry wolf and go into Predator 'target acquisition' mode to identify and bury the ball-carrier.
Definitely someone Popp has to re-sign in the offseason.
