Funny how this comment is made by the guy whose favorite Redskins player is currently bagging groceries in Oahu.

Re: Chris Cooley Released

Cooley's release from the Redskins was about the team saving money. That 3.8 million $ that he was due this season had he remained is entirely too much to pay a reserve player. Although Cooley is above and beyond a normal back-up TE, it's still too much to pay a player who is not starting.

It would not surprise me in the least if the Redskins and Cooley already had this worked out after they informed him they were going to release him. As much as he wants to play for the Redskins I could see him telling the team he would wait after week one and sign for the vet minimum (or a substantially reduced price from his former contract) just to stay with the team.

Re: Chris Cooley Released

Would make sense. Same situation for Hightower (or Slaton). I expect the same to happen with Plaxico (likely in NY with the Jets)

How I feel about Cooley returning? Mixed. I happen to think the Paul experiment is not going to go over so well, so maybe Cooley can help mitigate that

Re: Chris Cooley Released

I'd be thrilled to have him back. I thought he was working out nicely as the H-back, fullback and we do need an insurance policy for Davis given his past suspension. I just don't trust Paul and Paulsen at TE as starters.

Re: Chris Cooley Released

Yeah I had a bright idea to go and buy his jersey real quick before the 'skins re-signed him but it's still just as much as an Robert Griffin III jersey....LOL!

Funny how he wanted to call his Grammy right away. You forget some of these guys are really young.
Have you ever been to Indy? What a depressing place. Miami on the other hand?

Re: Chris Cooley Released

I think this would be a great move. Cooley is in great shape and adds a lot on the field and off.
