According to David Newton of ESPN, Panthers DE Bryan Cox Jr. was cited for speeding, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Newton reports that Cox was going 90 mph in a 65 mph speed zone on his way home from training camp in Spartanburg, South Carolina when his 2015 Nissan was pulled over.
The Carolina Panthers issued the following statement, per Jourdan Rodrigue, regarding Cox:
“The club is aware that Bryan Cox Jr. was cited by law enforcement today. We are in the process of gathering information and have been in contact with the NFL and Bryan. We will have no further comment at this time.”
Cox, 24, wound up signing on with the Panthers as an undrafted free agent out of Florida back in 2017. He was waived coming out of the preseason but was later added to their practice squad before eventually promoted to the Panthers’ active roster.
Cos managed to make the 53-man roster last year and was re-signed this offseason as an exclusive rights free agent.
In 2018, Cox appeared in 11 games and recorded 10 tackles and no sacks for the Panthers.
