From the Bleacher:

Cooley is only a few months removed from the organization. He knows the offense and could be plugged in right away. It should be noted that he was only released because he wanted to be a starter and Washington was committed to having Davis start at tight end.

Now that the starting hurdle has been cleared, the two sides should reach a quick agreement and have Cooley at the facility on Tuesday.

Washington has a supremely winnable game at Pittsburgh in Week 8. In order to put their best foot forward, the Skins need to get the most talented and knowledgeable replacement they can for Davis.

And they know just where to find him.

Sucks it had to come this way, but at least Chris will be on the team when we win the SB this year.

I was a little put back by his ego. I'd ask him some hard questions if he's found a little humility before pulling the trigger given that 31 other teams have passed on him. I'm surprised to be saying that after his tenure here, but I was shocked at some of his statements reflecting a complete lack of a grasp of reality of his situation.


You haven't been following the league this year huh. The Raiders and Jets both reached out to him. If I remember correctly Dallas also offered him contract. Cooley turned down all 3 teams and I'm sure there were more offers given the rash of injuries at the position. I wouldn't be shocked if he and the expected him to be back at some point anyways this year. Maybe post bye week.

Ego? WTF are you talking about? The guy got several offers, but turned them all down because he only really wants to play for the Skins. And you want to chalk that up to ego? Dude, you're the one who needs a reality check.

NE, Miami, and KC and there may be one or two more... he turned them all down stating if he played again he'd be wearing a Washington Redskins uniform :rock:

That's just his ego talking. :roll:

Seriously though, we will go on a winning streak, now that we have righted the wrong done to this core Redskin. :up:

For you to say he changed his mind or even that his statements at the time were overblown could be completely reasonable, but that you have no idea what I'm referring to isn't.

Yes on Cooley, but no on Morris. Raheem's in charge of the achilles heal of our D. If fact, he is most likely the individual most responsible for our secondary play and in effect, our horrendous D. I would fire him after the season......

Promoting the defenses' most underperforming defensive coach just doesn't make much sense to me...........

Try to buy Wade Phillips (although he will most likely get a HC job again in the near future)....... what is Blanche up to these days? Could think about him. He was always decent in DC, but does run a 4-3, which may be an issue.
RIP Sean Taylor. You will be missed.
