You can't blame the team in this case.

When healthy, Cooley was a top 5 TE and was worth the contract.

He's only 30 and broken down. You can't blame the team.

Re: Chris Cooley Released

Have to say, Cooley is probably one of my favorite Redskins ever. It was apparent the past year or so that his injuries have caught up with him as he no longer remotely looks like he did in this video. It's a shame most of those years here were spent on bad teams.

Re: Chris Cooley Released

Man, I hate to see Chris Cooley go. He was definitely one of my favorite players and a fan favorite! However, ultimately, this is what's best for the team.

Let's not lose sight of the future with this move. Even though we are on the cusp of the 2012 season, many moves (like this one) are about 2013 and beyond. We aren't going to compete to be a deep playoff run team this year but in 2013 with upgrades at C, RT and CB we can be. This move was about giving Paul the opportunity to develop over a full season to being a weapon at TE. They clearly moved him there with the future in mind. Let him play, learn and develop.

Removing the emotion from the Cooley move, from a pure football move it's close to a no-brainer. Cooley was older, slower and coming off of major injuries in 2 of the last 3 seasons. Taking away how I feel about him, it's tough to argue against it. Paul is younger, faster, much bigger upside in 2012, 2013 and beyond to not give him the chance to blossom.

Then if he is hogwash, which goes against virtually everything that insiders have been saying all camp, he gets replaced again by a younger player. At the end of the day, this is our backup TE position we're discussing.

I agree with you 100%. It seems like everyone is just assuming Paul is awesome and going to make the pro-bowl. The thing is, he's done NOTHING yet to prove he can do it. When Davis gets suspended for 1 year for testing positive (yes, i said When, not if), we're going to be stuck with Paulsen and Paul and its not going to be pretty.

Sorry to see CC go, but younger, stronger, faster, cheaper, and younger! We need more younger!

Damn I hate seeing Cooley go. A great Redskin. Let's hope he doesn't go to a divisional foe.

Not sure if thats correct.

2010 played started 15/16 games tied for his most receiving yards.

Where are you getting he was hurt 2 of the 3 yrs.

Do you know what 2 of the last 3 means?

Re: Chris Cooley Released

Saw his jersey on the sale rack at the game on Saturday, right next to Landry's. He has lost more than a step, and this team has the talent at the TE position to move on without him. This is not a surprise.

Re: Chris Cooley Released

This sucks. I have a few newer skin jersey's and I was wondering which one would retire a skin. Portis, nope. Cooley, nope. Only one I have left is Moss....hmmm. Maybe next year.
