He didn't come to camp healthy. He was slow and his knees were done, if you ask me they still are to be honest. Sure, they might feel good right now, but after going full speed for a couple of games, taking hits, they're going to fall apart as they have the last couple of seasons.

I love the dude, he is a great lockerrom guy and he does bleed Burgundy and Gold, but there's a time we have to say the guy is done as a Redskin. Bring him back as a coach, sure, no biggie, but right now there's more important needs for the team than to have a backup TE/FB.

I do agree we have other areas that currently appear to be in more need than TE/FB. However, Darrel Young has not been healthy, and I'm not quite convinced that the Niles Paul at TE experiment is going to work, so it's quite possible that the 'skins will need Cooley back at either the FB or TE position. I also believe that if Chris Cooley is done, then the 'skins front office and coaching staff wouldn't even entertain the idea of Cooley coming back in any shape or form, especially since his roster spot would mean having to let someone else go.

Re: Chris Cooley Released

I'm not sure what kind of on-field impact he has left in him, but if they offered him a job in the Redskins organization I would be fine with that.

Re: Chris Cooley Released

If anything, if Cooley could come in and just be a solid blocker for RGIII and company, that would mean more to me than him coming in and being an offensive weapon.

Cooley catching passes from the fullback position is a plus. He gives us good depth at 2 positions as well. Would love to have him back at a discount.

Absolutely. And every report I've read said he looked good in camp, ran well and lost 10 to 15 pounds. Even read a report why the Cowgirls should sign him. Writing him off is a little premature.

Every report I read was that he looked slow. Real slow.

This. But it wouldnt hurt to have him at depth. Give him Banks' spot. I guarantee he will be of more value than that little overhyped midget.

Re: Chris Cooley Released

Everything I heard was that he was given basically nothing to do so it's tough to know just fast or whatever he is. But the reality is speed was never an asset of his. And I just don't want to hold onto him for a yet too long

Re: Chris Cooley Released

From what I've heard, and can make of it (keep in mind this is just my take on it). If Niles Paul struggles on Sunday, Chris Cooley will be brought back for vet min until Paul can get up to the speed they want him to be. If Paul looks fine Sunday, sounds like the odds are against Cooley returning.

Again, that's what I took from it.

Well that'd be dumb. How can you expect Pail to suddenly figure it all out on Sunday? They like Paul and they're seemingly determined to see him succeed as a TE. From what we've all seen they can honestly expect much from him yet.

Yeah, sounds like Cooley would be insurance or something. Not too sure, but yeah, maybe they are more worried about Paul than we think?
