Fletcher Cox, Darren Sproles report for Eagles' mandatory minicamp

PHILADELPHIA -- The Eaglesannounced Monday that all 87 players eligible to attend this week's mandatory minicamp reported on Monday, including defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and running back Darren Sproles, who skipped all three weeks of voluntary organized team activity practices.

Earlier, coach Doug Pederson said he expected both Cox and Sproles to be in attendance.

"The last word I received was that [Cox] is coming, yes," Pederson said. "Like I said last week, I would expect both of them to be here."

Sproles was seen by reporters as he pulled into the NovaCare Complex. Sproles said he missed voluntary workouts because of "family" issues, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. As for reports that Sproles was unhappy with his contract, Sproles called them "false."

Cox is playing in 2016 on the team option year included in his original rookie contract. Under NFL rules, Cox will make $7.79 million this season. Cox is seeking a long-term deal. Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman has said that the team wants to get a long-term deal done with Cox. The two sides have not been able to come to an agreement yet.

Because OTAs are voluntary, Cox and Sproles faced no discipline for skipping the workouts. If a player skips the mandatory three-day camp this week, he is subject to a fine of $76,580.
