Bryan Cox shoves Cardinals scout, plans to apologize

Falcons defensive line coach Bryan Cox shoved a Cardinals scout regarding access to incoming rookies during the interview process.

The Falcons were interviewing a player, Atlanta’s time was up, and the Cardinals scout was waiting to escort the player to the Arizona interview room. Cox confronted the Cardinals scout with some loud curse words. Cox then shoved the Cardinals employee. It did not escalate beyond that.

The Cardinals had no comment on the matter. The Falcons issued the following statement to PFT, from Cox.

“I intend to apologize to the young man for the incident that happened last night during the interview process,” Cox said. “It shouldn’t have happened.”

In 1994, Cox sued the NFL and Commissioner Paul Tagliabue for subjecting Cox, then a Dolphins linebacker, to a “racially hostile environment” in Buffalo. Cox also alleged that the NFL failed to adequately investigate death threats and letters sent to him containing racial slurs.

Cox had been fined $10,000 for giving the double-barreled middle finger gesture to Bills fans.
The fine was reduced to $3,000 after the NFL learned that offensive statements had been directed to him.

In theory, the NFL could take action against Cox under the Personal Conduct Policy for shoving an employee of another team.

No, the NFL won't take action against Cox but they WOULD take action against the Falcons. This guy was featured on the NFLN, smoking cigars and acting like the wise old man river coach. He's still a thug and a PUNK imo and I'm ashamed he's a Falcons coach. They all say he relates to the players and all that crap, well guess what? His product on the field has SUCKED COX! He's a JOKE of an NFL coach and has a reputation of being thin skinned and in essence, a BABY BOY all his life.

This widdle baby boy had shoved me?,...someone going to jail I promise cause I'd bust his fat ****ing nose into a bloody blob. There's yo apologee BITCH BOY.
