Free agent tight end Chris Cooley told WUSA 9 in Washington D.C. that the only team he wants to play for next season is the Washington Redskins.
“It’s been really strange but it’s been fun because of what I did in the football world, there’s all these opportunities and I say to myself ‘oh my gosh, I can do this, or this or this or I can play golf,'” says the former tight end laughing. Cooley says he doesn’t want to play for any other team than the Skins but they have not contacted him about a return to the organization.
“I have no clue but you can ask Bruce Allen (General Manager) though or Mike Shanahan,” says Cooley laughing. He still, however, is a fan of burgundy and gold.
He continued, “I think what the Washington Redskins did last year changed football, it changed the way football is played, Robert (Griffin) changed the way football is played, people couldn’t stop us.”
I think Cooley’s career is over. The only reason the Redskins signed him last season is because Fred Davis went down for the season. And when he came in, he did absolutely nothing.
