The Philadelphia Eagles restructured the contract of Fletcher Cox to create cap space, but won't use it to trade for Le'Veon Bell, according to sources.

The new deal creates $6.5 million more cap space for the Eagles this season and $11.7 million more for next season.

The Eagles placed Jay Ajayi on injured reserve with a torn ACL on Monday, but Bell isn't in their plans.

"It's 100 percent misleading to think Cox's restructuring was done with Le'Veon Bell in mind," said one league source.
