Tom Mars, the attorney who has helped many players, including Florida WR Van Jefferson, obtain the waiver after transferring. Mars doesn’t expect Cox to receive the waiver.
“Unless there’s some well-kept secret that would qualify him for a waiver, I’d say chances of Brenton Cox getting a waiver are approximately zero,”Mars told Chip Towers of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Tuesday.
Mars’ “well-kept secret” qualifier is important to note. It is certainly possible that Mullen’s confidence comes from knowing something about the situation that others do not.
