It is approaching midnight on the East coast, but teams on the West coast are three hours behind and are using the extra time to get deals done before the end of day two of free agency.
One team that made a final push and made a deal from their late work is the San Diego Chargers. According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Chargers have agreed to terms with free agent cornerback Derek Cox.
Cox and the Chargeres agreed to a three-year deal. Financial terms will not disclosed.
It is no surprise that Cox comes off the market shortly after Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Jerraud Powers got deals earlier in the night. San Diego was interested in Powers, but just missed out when he chose the Arizona Cardinals.
The cornerback market is starting to set itself and the Chargers wanted to jump in the mix. The Washington Redskins were also in the mix for Cox’s services.
Cox, a former third-round pick, has 12 interceptions in his career.
