Riley Cooper

  1. Jeremy Maclin agrees to 1-year deal

    Feb 28, 2014, 4:37 PM EDT


    And just like that, another chapter of Philadelphia Eagles’ wide receiver drama comes to a close—with a cliffhanger ending of course. The team agreed to terms with impending free-agent wide receiver Jeremy Maclin on Friday, however on a one-year contract that puts the two sides in roughly the same position 12 months from now. The…

  2. Riley Cooper gets 5 years, $10 million guaranteed officially

    Feb 27, 2014, 12:33 PM EDT


    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…

  3. Four More Years: Riley Cooper to sign 4-year deal with Eagles

    Feb 26, 2014, 10:03 PM EDT

    Riley Cooper

    Welp, all that priority-not-priority talk is moot now. League source tells me Riley Cooper will sign a 4-year deal tomorrow with Eagles. @Jeff_McLane and PFT reported today that deal was close. — Geoff Mosher (@GeoffMosherCSN) February 27, 2014 It’s hard to put this in the proper context without knowing exactly how much this thing is…

  4. CONFLICTING SOURCES!!!! New report says the Eagles like Cooper more than Maclin

    Feb 26, 2014, 3:50 PM EDT


    Over the weekend, the Inquirer’s Jeff McLane reported that if the Eagles end up having to pick one free agent wide receiver over another, they’ll end up placing a higher priority on Jeremy Maclin than Riley Cooper. Shortly thereafter, ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio wrote: Possible translation?  The Eagles have learned enough about the expected market for…

  5. Report: Eagles prefer Maclin to Cooper, sun rises in the East

    Feb 22, 2014, 12:41 PM EDT


    The Philadelphia Eagles believe they have the answer to the question that has haunted mankind since its inception: Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper or both? General manager Howie Roseman previously admitted re-signing both wide receivers would be “complicated.” Now, according to Jeff McLane for the Inquirer, the Eagles are ready to prioritize a deal with Maclin…

  6. Counting Down the Eagles’ Needs: No. 6, Wide Receiver

    Feb 12, 2014, 3:50 PM EDT


    Free agency is right around the corner, and the draft will be here before you know it. With the Philadelphia Eagles’ offseason in full swing, we’re examining where the roster stands at each position, counting down based on team need. Check out the previous installments on the offensive line, quarterbacks, tight ends and  running backs.…

  7. Thoughts on Mel Kiper mocking wide receiver to Eagles in first round

    Jan 17, 2014, 9:45 AM EDT

    kelvin benjamin

    It’s never too early for a mock draft (it’s almost always too early for a mock draft)—especially when it’s Mel Kiper, Jr., the face of NFL Draft coverage. Needless to say, his first take on the Philadelphia Eagles’ No. 22-overall selection probably raised a few eyebrows. Despite the presence of DeSean Jackson and a clamoring…

  8. Eagles you told you’d rather the team keep over DeSean Jackson

    Jan 13, 2014, 4:27 PM EDT

    DeSean Jackson

    With the Philadelphia Eagles’ offseason already a week old, various media outlets are running through the tried and true “Stay or Go” exercise. We did that for the club’s 11 impending free agents, but it seems a little silly to do for the entire roster and coaching staff since a large percentage are definitely returning.…

  9. Why the Philadelphia Eagles don’t need Riley Cooper anymore

    Jan 9, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT


    Randy Moss. Terrell Owens. Chad Johnson. These are names of players who fans suggested play wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles after Jeremy Maclin suffered a torn ACL in training camp. In 2013! That’s how desperate folks were to keep Riley Cooper off the field before he used a racial slur. Fast forward six months,…

  10. Stay or Leave: Early look at Eagles’ 2014 free agents

    Jan 6, 2014, 12:45 PM EDT


    While it came too early this year—as it does too often around these parts—the offseason is one of the best things about the NFL. Organizations construct their rosters through free agency and the draft, and we get to play along as fantasy general managers, dissecting each decision along the way. As always, we’ll be examining…

  11. The time ‘genius’ head coach Chip Kelly deferred to Cary Williams

    Dec 9, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    Chip Kelly

    Want to know what makes Chip Kelly smarter than a lot of other bosses around the NFL? He knows he doesn’t always have all the answers and is willing to take good advice—even when it comes from a player. The Philadelphia Eagles’ offense was stranded in a ditch somewhere off of I-95 until cornerback Cary…

  12. GIF: Riley Cooper’s amazing one-handed catch

    Dec 1, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Riley Cooper

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper made the catch of the first half when he went up way high for a Nick Foles ball and managed to wrangle it in with one hand. But the highlight reel play didn’t end there as Cooper put on a spin move that Shady McCoy would be proud of…

  13. Eagles surpass last season’s win total 10 games into 2013

    Nov 10, 2013, 5:45 PM EDT


    The Eagles might be a year or two away from contending for a championship—they don’t even know who their franchise quarterback is (or do they?)—but at least one thing is now certain. This year’s team is officially better than the 2012 iteration. After finishing 4-12 in Andy Reid’s final season as head coach, Philadelphia has…

  14. Foles should be the starter: second-year QB masterful in Eagles 31-20 win at Tampa

    Oct 13, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT


    If I’m Chip Kelly, I’ve seen all I needed to from Nick Foles. Simply put, the kid is playing a better quarterback than Michael Vick right now. The second-year field general picked up right where he left off last week in the Eagles’ 31-20 win over Tampa Bay. Foles completed 22 of 31 attempts for…

  15. Let’s watch Dave Spadaro attempt to defend Riley Cooper when up against Reuben Frank

    Oct 10, 2013, 6:51 PM EDT


    Eagles WR Riley Cooper has not had the best of seasons. That’s one way of putting it. columnist Reuben Frank has put it another way — with numbers. Let’s check some of the stats: Fewest catches among WRs with 5 starts: R. Woods (16), R. Streater (16), C. Givens (15), R. White (14), D.…

  16. Eagles as West Bromwich Albion? This “Pick Your Team” Thing Goes the Other Way, Too

    Sep 19, 2013, 12:59 PM EDT

    Screen shot from The Guardian.

    The Union are on a bye week. Their playoff hopes, which seemed so promising less than a month ago, are now gasping for air in the deepest portion of the Delaware River. The only thing positive that came out of Saturday night’s 1-0 loss to Houston was my nearly 2-year-old son’s initiation into Lot A…

  17. @FakeWIPCaller’s Essential 2013 Eagles Preview: 10 Things I Hate About the Eagles

    Sep 6, 2013, 11:41 AM EDT

    Michael Vick

    For all those years, every true Eagles fan prayed that one day, we’d at last be rid of Joe Banner, Donovan McNabb, and Andy Reid. One by one, we got our wish. So why does being an Eagles fan still suck? Here are ten reasons why, counting down: 10. Michael Vick, whose last playoff win…

  18. Riley Cooper Says Cary Williams Scuffle Had Nothing to Do with Racial Slur

    Sep 5, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT


    After watching Eagles corner Cary Williams get into a scuffle with teammate Riley Cooper at practice this morning, most fans immediately wondered if the incident had anything at all to do with Cooper’s infamous use of a racial slur at a country music concert this offseason. It’s hard not to let your mind take you…

  19. VIDEO: Cary Williams Brawls With Riley Cooper at Practice

    Sep 5, 2013, 12:31 PM EDT


    We don’t know what this was about or why it happened — you will all undoubtedly guess. But your video of Riley Cooper and Cary Williams mixing it up is above. Williams was lined up on Cooper, Williams jumped over Cooper’s back in coverage, the two went to the ground, and then began fighting once…

  20. So What Exactly Did Riley Cooper Do During His Excused Absence?

    Aug 6, 2013, 6:51 PM EDT


    I think everybody was a little surprised to hear Riley Cooper was already returning to practice on Tuesday, at least people outside the Philadelphia Eagles organization. Cooper was excused from training camp last Friday so he could “seek counseling” after video surfaced of the wide receiver using a racial slur during an alcohol-fueled tirade. The…

  21. Eagles Release Unofficial Depth Chart – WHO’S THE STARTING QB?!?!

    Aug 5, 2013, 5:15 PM EDT


    Whoever is responsible for this version of the Eagles’ depth chart, which is posted on the team’s web site but honestly means next to nothing, totally copped out when they got down to quarterback. And the first-team signal caller is…? 7 Michael Vick/9 Nick Foles. Still no hint on who will start the first preseason…

  22. Chip Kelly Says He Never Even Considered Cutting Riley Cooper

    Aug 2, 2013, 2:45 PM EDT


    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…

  23. Riley Cooper Won’t Be at Eagles Practice for a While

    Aug 2, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT


    Both the Eagles and Riley Cooper released statements this afternoon regarding his standing with the team in light of the racial slur he made which has kicked off all sorts of controversies surrounding this team. The Eagles had this to say in a statement: “As we have said, Riley Cooper will be seeking counseling and…

  24. Bird Droppings: Controversies and Non-Controversies at Eagles Training Camp

    Aug 1, 2013, 3:05 PM EDT


    Perhaps the most overblown story of the offseason so far is about the NFL’s V.P. of officiating coming down on up-tempo offenses like what the Eagles plan to run under Chip Kelly this season. Let’s hear what he has to say: “We have to make sure teams understand that they don’t control the tempo, our…

  25. Teammates React to Riley Cooper’s Racial Slur, Apology

    Aug 1, 2013, 12:21 AM EDT


    Video of Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper using a racial slur went viral late Wednesday afternoon. It’s sensational enough without commentary. Obviously the 25-year-old’s words were terribly insensitive to say the least, and he’s probably lucky to get off with just a fine – however expensive it may be – much less keep his job.…
