re: Fred Davis Done for Season. Welcome Back Cooley

@JasonLaCanfora: Redskins have reached out to former TE Chris Cooley, and deal likely to be finalized shortly. Reunion makes perfect sense for him and team

re: Fred Davis Done for Season. Welcome Back Cooley

I know it's early yet, but not really, and a quality tight end has to be considered an absolute necessity. I don't see Davis coming back next year, as he is a free agent, and has been mostly underwelming since he was highly drafted in 08. Time to say goodbye to Fred. Cooley is at best a stopgap for the remainder of this season, and Niles Paul is not a tight end.

Joseph Fauria of UCLA will likely be available in the 2nd rd when the Skins select next year, and he should be on the short list of possible draftees. Almost 6'-8" at 260 lbs with ok 4.8 speed, he won't go in the first, but he offers a big time red zone target area, quality blocking, and after the catch run ability.

Tight end has to now be considered a must get and high priority for next year. Secondary help has to come from free agency as rookie secondary players are almost always unreliable. Jarius Byrd at FS with either Talib or Cromartie at corner.


In other words, build the offense around Griffin with high draft picks for future growth, and build the defense thru free agency for immediate results.

Regardless, I'm very proud of our offense & team. RG3 makes up for all the injuries -- earlier it was the O-line, then Garcon, then DAvis, & defensive injuries -- but the next man up has been making it happen. With prior years, we would have crumbled with these injuries - but now I think it doesn't matter as much. Credit Shanahan and the depth he's creating, and Kyle's creative playcalling.


I get the feeling that RG3 can will us to win himself alone. Also feel that whoever we have in there by the years end - we could be dangerous if we get into the playoffs...
I was been sarcastic, because people like to blame him for everything.

re: Fred Davis Done for Season. Welcome Back Cooley

Focus next year needs to be on Safety and CB's. We will resign Davis (the injury probably made that easier since no one will be paying a premium for a TE with 1 strike and coming off a major injury). OL seems to be solid in run and schemed ok for passing. Need to work on strengthening the back end of our Defense first, then any other area.

TK ‏@TKextremeskins

Dust off your 47 jerseys #redskins RT @Jsteelz_Httr: get ready to welcome back Cooley..Deal close, may be done yet tonight



I agree with you Smoot. I think Paulsen is doing a hell of a job. Much better than Niles Paul is at the moment.

What if Cooley come's in here and beasts? I'm sure he's going to be trying to change some minds. I mean he definitely can't be worse than Paul. He's practically the Ade Jimoh of 2012.

If Cooley can catch a pass and make a block, he'd already be miles ahead than Paul.

re: Fred Davis Done for Season. Welcome Back Cooley

Assuming Chris is in football shape, he's a better TE than lunch pail Logan (whom I think is a good TE btw). Logan is the better blocker and his height definitely will give him the upper-hand on a play or two each game. But Cooley has always had a knack for finding open space, and he's still a rambler after the catch. They both have good hands, but you gotta give Chris the edge based on experience.

Chris and Logan should split reps at TE. Paul shouldn't be on the field when the offense is at work, but Shanny isn't letting go of this one for some reason.

Where does it say that Cooley will be the #1 TE? At best Cooley is the #2 TE, although he might be the 3rd TE even though Paul can't catch or block.

I didn't say that at all. I think he'll be the #3 TE behind Paulson (#1) and Paul (#2).

What if Shanahan doesn't look in Cooley's direction? What if he looks to add someone else?
