Fletcher Cox does not watch sports on television.
Philadelphia Eagles defensive lineman Fletcher Cox says that he has never watched a Super Bowl game in his life.
Cox was asked whether he had any memories from growing up and watching the Super Bowl on television. He responded by saying, "Nah, man. You know, I don't really watch football."
"I don’t watch sports," Cox added. "Y’all know that.”
Media members wouldn't let him off the hook easily and pressed him on it. Cox stuck to his story that he does not watch sports and he tells reporters that all the time.

Sports Illustrated's own Mitch Goldich did some online sleuthing and discovered that in 2015, Cox tweeted right when Malcolm Butler picked off Russell Wilson to win Super Bowl XLIX.
