Forget takers, watching that video made me think that he wouldn't play for anyone else, even if traded.

Re: Chris Cooley Released

Dolphins could use a TE.

I don't think he would have had such an emotional press conference (while wearing a generic NFL shirt) if that was still a possibility, sad to say.

did the redskins really say "a team offered a 6th for him but chris' future is more important than ours"?!? come on, dawg

Nobody was going to pay Cooley that salary he was supposed to get which is probably why no trades really materialized.

? To me Paul struggled. He didn't show me enough to believe he has surpassed Cooley. I saw one good play and that was his TD catch on a corner end zone route. Otherwise hogwash.

Personally I think the team is trying to cut corners where they can and if they can get players who play different positions then they are happy. Paul can play WR in the worst case, can block as a TE, and plays Special Teams well. About the only think I like about him is his Special Teams ability.

Redskins release Chris Cooley - The Insider - The Washington Post

Shanahan said the two sides did not discuss Cooley’s contract. The tight end, who has filled in at fullback with starter Darrel Young injured, would have counted more than $6 million against the salary cap this season if he had remained with the team.


Shanahan did not rule out the possibility of the Redskins re-signing Cooley if he is unable to find a starting job elsewhere.


“There’s a lot of scenarios that could still occur,” Shanahan said. “... Chris wants to be a starter in the National Football League.”
Cooley had said during training camp that he was willing to fill any role to remain with the team. He played regularly at fullback during the Redskins’ three preseason games.


Shanahan said he wishes Cooley well and the team thought it did what is right for itself and Cooley.

The Redskins save $3.9 M in cap space this year, and $4.9 M in cap space in 2013.

In both 2012 and 2013, the Redskins must carry dead cap charges of approximately $2.0 million each year. But the savings on base salary from his release more than offset this cap charge.

This could be a slightly cap-motivated decision, because my understanding is the Redskins can choose to take as much as they want of the $36 M league-imposed cap penalty this year. If they take the Cooley cap space and carry $3 million more of the cap charge this year as opposed to next year, they could carry $21 M this year and $15 M next year.

If they did that, Cooley coming off the 2013 books would free the $4.9 M in space I mentioned, plus the $3 M of cap charge, overall could create $7.9 M in space for 2013.

Re: Chris Cooley Released

Makes sense...he'd cost us $6mil to keep him but we only free up $4mil by cutting him.

Sad to say but he's not worth that cap hit as a reserve.

This front office is much smarter than the previous mess we had in charge. I guess I should just trust them on that kicker move this morning...they must know something we don't.

Re: Chris Cooley Released

Great job of front loading all the contracts the Skins got penalized for after being told not to, now Cooley gets pooped on.
