2 receptions in a single game makes him a pass catching TE?

he was a passblocking WR for the most part

Re: cooley done in dc?

love Cooley but between injuries and dropsies over the past few years if we have to move on.. we do

it's not like we've been a winning team with him.. or due to him... don't get me wrong, he's greatly contributed to the limited success that we've had.. and I'll always view him as a TRUE Redskin, but part of being a fan is wanting the best for your team.. so I hope that he can contribute well

Don't count Chris Cooley out just yet. He's just had a major set back. He's heading back in the right direction. He's slimmed down after dropping twenty pounds and he says his knee is feeling okay. Hopefully, he can return to the Chris Cooley of old.

Re: cooley done in dc?

As others said, Cooley will be retained only if the restructures to ultimately take a pay cut. Davis is the undisputed starter unless he gets suspended (again) or injured. Cooley is an important backup at this point but you can't have a backup eat up so much toward the salary cap.

The Niles Paul move to TE is insurance against possibly losing Cooley IMO. If Cooley takes the cut and is actually healthy he'll be the primary backup. If Cooley chooses to move on it's a big opportunity for Paul.

Sounds all well and good. But where does this leave Logan Paulsen? He's the forgotten tight end now.

Hard to say? He's still our best blocking TE probably...

FD better come to camp ready to work, because I think CC is going to be breathing down his neck.

Yeah, but only because he's a step behind....

It will be nice for once NOT to have the focus on our inept Quarterbacktuation, right?

I don't think it's even going to be remotely close. In fact, I don't even think he beats out Paul for 2nd string.

1- Paul is a better blocker
2- Paul is faster


One of the problems Paul had at WR was getting separation from CBs. As a TE, he's going to have 0 problem with getting separation from LBs and Safeties. Cooley isn't going to outrun anybody. His main thing over the course of the years has been finding spots in the zone and breaking tackles. Whereas, FD catches the passes in stride or on slants and gets serious yardage afterwards. I expect Paul to be in the same mold.

I know I'm going to catch hell for feeling this way though.

Re: cooley done in dc?

Niles Paul is useless as a reciever.

This is Cooleys year to determine if hes still got it.

I don't think they are even competing for the same type of spot. Paul is likely to be used more like Davis, split out. CC is the more traditional in line TE. All 3 will make the team.
