Chip Kelly Says He Never Even Considered Cutting Riley Cooper

A lot of the chatter on sports talk radio, the Internet, on Twitter, etc surrounding the fallout from Riley Cooper’s use of a racial slur has focused on whether or not the Philadelphia Eagles should simply cut ties with the now controversial receiver. Today, Chip Kelly put that speculation to rest by stating he never even considered cutting Cooper and that his status with the Birds is not in question.

From CSN’s Geoff Mosher:

    Someone said on another Cooper post that if he said “f^ggot” there would have been less of an uproar. I’m not sure I totally agree with that, but I do wonder where the same uproar was when Desean Jackson called a caller on a radio show “gay ass” and “f^ggot.”
