Good move by the FO! Is it safe now to buy a Cooley Jersey?

Redskins give tight end Cooley six-year contract extension

I think we should have waited a little while for it, but I'm happy he'll be here for a while.

Re: Chris Cooley signs contract extension!!

How dare someone change my thread title. It's like drawing a mustache on the Mona Lisa. I've been waiting for more than 18 months to use the proper word re-sign instead of resign which means the opposite and now this.

And two exclamation points? It makes me look like a 12 year old girl. Mark my words, vengeance will be mine!!

That's a friggin bargain for a player of his caliber. Way to go Skins. See what happens when we're proactive with resigning our core guys? First Betts, now Cooley. Two key offensive cogs, both at a bargain price.
Two good moves by the FO ... my first thought was that the Skins got a deal (of course Cooley has a calculation to make too, sign now and get the $14 million guarenteed or risk injury for the possibility of a few million more later). My second thought was that I hope Chris signed a prenup with the future Christy Cooley ...

Yes.

This is good news.

I know I can be a real pessimist but the Betts and Cooley signings - and their prudence this year are real indications that the front office is moving in the right direction.

Cooley quoted in the Post article:

Quote:
"I kind of started talking to a couple of our coaches and stuff and saying, 'Look, I'd like this done,' and it was awesome," Cooley said. "I think Dan heard about it a day later and said: 'Look, we pay. We want to pay. All we want is you here.' And maybe three days later it was done."
Makes it sound like the agent got in the way, here.

He talks to coaches directly, and four days later it is done.

Need to kep this in mind before we jump to the conclusion it is always Snyder blocking these negotiations.

Well not really, but I am buying one anyway.

Re: Chris Cooley signs contract extension!!

That is great news. And it sounds like it is a cap friendly contract too. This guy is a team player, others could stand to take note of this. Good job front office on this one.

Re: Chris Cooley signs contract extension!!

I'm late to the party on this one because I've been moving/partying for my mom's b-day for the past few days but man am I happy!!!!

Looks like I might have to go get that white #47 jersey soon, especially since I'm repping the Skins in Baltimore now.

Re: Chris Cooley signs contract extension!!

...and it sends a great message to Sean Taylor. It's obvious it would be hard for them to do a deal with him right now (cap space,) but they're making it very clear that they're making it a priority to take care of their own. (i.e., he'll be well taken care of next year.)

So even after you got to see Palmer ripping it up the other night you still think its a good idea to cut Brunell?

Re: Chris Cooley signs contract extension!!

We still have Collins who looked just as good as Brunell. The only problem I have with Brunell is that he has such a fat contract.

Re: Chris Cooley signs contract extension!!

Brunell's cap figure for this season is really not an issue. He agreed to have his hit reduced this past offseason.
