finish his career in the only uniform his has known.
For general manager,
Jim Popp, it is a sigh of relief to have locked up a player who is arguably
playing his best football in his career.
Cox, who will be 32
years old next June, will continue to bring the leadership role on the field.
Still in his prime, and the way he is utilized in defensive system employed by
Noel Thorpe, it is expected he will continue to put up high end numbers.
Once again history is
being playing out by the Alouettes re-signing their own players before they
ever delve into February's free agent market.
However, with Cox
locked up, how much money will be offered to middle linebacker, Bear Woods? Woods
is coming off his best season, but could Popp reward him based off of one
season, or will this be an incentive laden contract?
biggest piece is the future of S.J. Green. With this year's free agent market
expected to be loaded with receiver talent, does this expedite the negotiation
process on both sides?
Fascinating times has
beckoned the Alouettes franchise. But for now, they're off to a great start
with the Cox signing, and now with Green, and Woods due up in the pecking
order. Follow me on Twitter:MoeKhan19
