Longtime Eagles' defensive tackle Fletcher Cox reportedly took a "hometown discount" to return to Philadelphia, rejecting more lucrative free agent offers. 

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Eagles and Cox came to terms on a 1-year, $10M deal on Wednesday. 

The 32-year-old turned down contract proposals from other teams who were offering more years and/or money, according to Schefter's sources. 

Cox, a six-time Pro Bowler, has spent his entire 11-year career in Philadelphia after the team drafted him 12th overall in the 2012 NFL Draft. 

He started all 17 games for the Eagles last year and collected the third-most sacks in his career.
