Veteran tight end Chris Cooley has agreed to rejoin the Washington Redskins, a person familiar with the situation said Sunday night.

Cooley is scheduled to undergo a physical Monday and his re-signing will become official after that, the person said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the team had made no official announcement.

“It’s going to happen,” the person said.

I think my biggest concern is how do you use him at this point? Do you play him out of the slot or in the backfield? Do you put him on the line? I think he is to small to be on the line and I would much rather see us run a 3 WR set and keep Moss on the field more.

Cooley makes perfect sense. Fred was a big part of our offense. If we don't have another pass catching TE, it's not just that we lose those plays but it changes our offense.

I'm more than confident with Cooley and Paulsen. No worries at TE for the near future.

This is a marraige made in heavin. Just wait until RG3 discovers Cooley! If you think he was happy to discover Moss wait until he figures out that Cooley will always be open for him and be at the right place at the right time. You just got to have the right mix of youthful enthieusasm and old pro wisdom. We might be there.
Filling Fred Davis' shoes ain't gonna happen, he will be missed. If anybody can step in and Fred will give him support it is Cooley. These guys know how to work together.

Because Davis' shoe size is so much smaller than Cooley's.

Yeah, I'm gonna bet that's probably the other way around, in reality. But I get what your gettin' at.
I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"

Fred Davis has the most catches at this point on the team. He was averaging 3.4 per game. Over the remaining season that means he would have added another 31 receptions.

Over or under 31 for Chris Cooley?

I'm going over.

I'll say over. And with at least one TD, he will have already surpassed Fred's point production.

really great to have Cooley back - however he is a different player than Davis

Davis is the better TE but I love Cooley's ability to find a way to get open



btw - what's a metaphore? :roll:
