    While Riley Cooper fans got their wish on Thursday when the wide receiver signed a five-year, $25 million deal to remain with the Philadelphia Eagles, my feelings on the new pact would be based almost entirely on its structure. The money and length were roughly what I predicted they would be, but the devil is…
