Gotta set the DVR and make sure I dont miss tonights Redskins Nation. Should be one to remember.


Yeah would have been nice to see him greeted by the fans one more time. But If I had to choose between that and not having the money to feasibly bring in other players and then watch them go somewhere else.. I'd gladly choose to cut him on time and be ready for the waiver wire.

Don't look now but with them releasing Cooley like this, I can see how they will keep 7 WRs and Banks is now safe.


Hmm maybe , but maybe 9 LB's, or 7 DL's


Yes let's do that and keep a fresh ferocious pass rush harassing QB's Twisted Evil

I feel as if Cooley is being sold pretty short here.

Now, I haven't seen much of the preseason or the training camp reports to this point, but up until the injury-plagued season last year, this was a guy who was as sure a bet as you could find for 50ish yards/game and about 70 catches for 800 yards by the end of the season. He was never particularly explosive, or tall, or fast --- but he was solid as a rock. To the point where he's been among the top 5-6 TEs during the period he's been in the league.

Obviously, Shanny has some pretty serious Niles Paul man-love. And I hope he's right. But I could also see this haunting us if Grateful Fred is out for an extended period (for whatever reason). Hopefully he latches on with an AFC team (Raiders sound good to me) and has another Cooley-esque season when given the shot.

Its all those idiots ShanAllens fault. (still venting Laughing )

The five-year, $27.5 million contract the team gave Brown a year ago complicates matters. By all indications there is no injury protection for the team in the contract even though it was known that his hip was an issue when the deal was signed.

I agree E. But think of this.

This allows Cooley the time to find another team. Albeit not as much time as if we had released him earlier in the year.

And it frees up his $$$ for the cap. This allows us to be in position to sign players who we may need as certain positions get thin.

Paulsen was looking good (dare I say "Cooley-esque" this preseason?)not only blocking but catching the ball (and hanging onto it - something Cooley has been doing lately is a big case of "fumblitis").

Niles Paul is going to get better so I see this panning out eventually.

Fred Davis is the key here. If he stays clean, this was a great move for Cooley and for us. If he tokes up again and is suspended, we're left wit Paul and Paulsen and then it looks extremely bad.

Also - remember Cooley's words "for the time being". There's nothing saying he can't just take his time, see what others out there are asking and if we want him back at a reduced price, take our offer and join us again.

What a load of P C / BS Rolling Eyes
He was cut cause he's slower, weaker, older, declining and he cost a bunch $$$$ -- but Shanny can't say that.

I guess you'd rather him say," Cooley runs like an elephant with concrete boots, fumbles the ball and drops passes in critical times."

I liked how when asked about Cooley's play this preseason he immediately said," It doesn't matter"
Then proceeded to repeat that Cooley wants to start and should get a chance to try. (In other words, he ain't gettin that chance here)

He could have ripped Cooley for no reason (either way he's cut) and pissed off the fanbase, but he decided to use some class instead.

I think the raiders would be a good fit as well or he could go to the eagles, cowboys, dolphins, cardinals, jets or chicago. There are a #q of teams that could use a TE who could start but most likely is a #2 right now.

I guess what sucks the most for me is that he was the last player on the team that was drafted with Sean Taylor. Who would even thought an unknown te/hb out of utah state in 04 would have become arguably the best TE in the 80 year history of the washington redskins and one of the greatest redskins period of all time.

I wish him the best.

Rich_Tandler: @manner11 $3.8 million but about an equal amount of dead cap next year.

Rich_Tandler: I get the issue with Shanny lying. But would it have been better if he'd said that CC wasn't productive enough for his salary (the truth)?

Rich_Tandler: @NC_Skins23 Don't know if either or both sides were willing to redo his deal. That might come out at some point.

good points, I think shanahan handled it as well as he could. There really was no right way to cut a fan fav over the past 7 years and have fans accept it. Reminds me of when we Portis was gone also. It was just time. Fans aren't going to be happy about it or accept it but the team is going in a younger direction.

I said earlier that Moss is the one,true ”old school” skin but I forgot about Doughty. Is he next to be cut? Think
