The champion ruckman had to shoulder the burden of being the main big man in 2013 as Nic Naitanui battled injury all season. Cox was only one of two Eagles to play all 22 games. He averaged 27 hit-outs and 15 disposals a game and kicked 13 goals. The veteran's ability to have an impact in big games remains strong and his experience and leadership is of great value.
