Eagles star Fletcher Cox was sued by a man who said he seduced his wife


A star National Football League (NFL) player has been sued by a man who says the athlete seduced his wife and ruined their marriage, according to The Charlotte Observer.

The Observer on Wednesday reported that Fletcher Cox, a two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle with the Philadelphia Eagles, has not yet responded to the lawsuit.

Joshua Jeffords of Huntersville, North Carolina filed the suit on Nov. 22 in Mecklenburg County Civil Court.

The suit states that Jeffords and his wife were happily married until last September, when he discovered Cox and his spouse were communicating.

Cox and Jeffords’ wife exchange salacious Snapchat and text messages, according to the filing, with at least two texts from the athlete saying he wanted to get her pregnant.

Jeffords’ wife sent Cox messages calling him “boo” and saying she was “loving everything you have to say.”

“I really like you,” she said in another text, according to the suit. “We’d make some damn beautiful babies.”

“I want to get to know you babe,” Jeffords’ wife purportedly added in another message. “I know we are compatible sexually.”

Jeffords’ filing states that Cox – who is 6-foot-4 and 310 lbs. – sent his spouse a photo of his genitals via Snapchat.

The lawsuit also notes that Jeffords is seeking at least $50,000, and it adds he was admitted to a facility to seek mental health treatment for “substantial emotional distress.”

Jeffords’ suit claims Cox met and seduced his wife when she was on a work trip to Pennsylvania last April.

The woman visited Pennsylvania multiple times after he confronted her over the situation, and she moved there on Oct. 28 after putting her belongings in a storage unit.

Cox played college football for Mississippi State University in Starkville, Mississippi before the Eagles drafted him in 2012.
