ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Wednesday signed cornerback Perrish Cox, whom they selected in the fifth round (137th overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft from Oklahoma State University. As per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Cox (6-foot-0, 195 pounds) was a finalist for the Thorpe Award (nation’s best defensive back) and earned first-team All-Big 12 Conference honors as a senior in 2009 after leading the country in pass breakups (19) and posting a career-high four interceptions for the Cowboys.

He also garnered All-America recognition for his ability on special teams, where he scored six return touchdowns (4 kickoff, 2 punt) during his collegiate career and finished with the third-most kickoff return yards (2,804) in FBS history.

An all-state selection at University High School in Waco, Texas, Cox was born on Jan. 10, 1987.
