49ers CB Perrish Cox Awaits NFL Conduct Review

Matt Maiocco is reporting that 49ers cornerback Perrish Cox is awaiting a conduct review from the NFL that could potentially impact his standing on the roster to start the season. Cox was found not guilty of two counts of sexual assault, but as we have seen the NFL Personal Conduct Policy is not based strictly on what happens in the legal process. The woman in the case is currently pursuing a lawsuit against Cox in a complaint for "sexual assault and battery, sexual abuse, unlawful sexual penetration, pregnancy, and other highly sensitive matters."

Cox sat out all last season in part because of the trial, which concluded with the not guilty verdict in early March. Cox signed a contract with the 49ers approximately 11 days after the verdict. He could face a suspension to start the season, but it is my understanding (I'm not positive on this) that the team could get a roster exemption during any suspension. We'll keep an eye on this as it could impact the 49ers cornerback decisions. For example, a guy like second year CB Curtis Holcomb could benefit from a Cox suspension.
