I saw an article about options the Pats will have for tight end now that Gronk is hurt and Hernandez is gone. I was thinking maybe they could they could go after Cooley.

What do you guys think?

It could be a good deal for Cooley to get to play with Brady and make it on a post season run.

We wouldn't get much value from them. I say at best especially the team being NE we would get at best a 6th round pick.

chris Cooley isn't with us. He's a free agent.

Just thought since nothing is going on we could talk about the possibility of him ending up in NE

1. Cooley was cut in Sept last year because of money.

2. I'd say Cooley, and Paulsen were on an equal playing field last year in camp and preseason. Again, if Cooley and Paulsen are equal, one is 3 million dollars cheaper and 5 years older, you keep the younger option. Then, Paulsen is a better blocker than Cooley and with Davis' deficiencies as a blocker, the team needed to have a good blocking tight end and that's why Paulsen made it over Cooley.

3. Cooley made it over Paul again mainly because of $$. Paul is a very fast tight end who's a good blocker on the move. Lastly, Paul is a good special teams player and that is something that Cooley has never done since his rookie season.

So now that we have the reasons why Cooley didn't make the 2012 Redskins Roster, lets fast forward to the reasons he "Could" be an option for the Patriots.

1. The patriots lost their #1 TE to back surgery and their 2nd TE to jail. Jake Ballard is back after missing last season with a torn Acl. They have the blocking TE in Michael Hoomanawanui and a rookie Zack Sudfeld who could be like A Logan Paulsen type for them.

2. Cooley is now a cheap veteran who won't cause any problems in the club house.

3. Cooley is a smart, savvy player with good hands. He can get open and be reliable for Brady. Even if he's not the fastest, he can get open and knows how to. Cooley was never the fastest or most athletic anyways, so that's nothing new.

Maybe it won't happen, maybe Cooley is damaged goods in the NFL now. I think their is a possibility that Cooley gets an invite to work out with the Pats though.

Cooley was on the team last year with Paulson and Paul and could get any significant playing time. I give you the fact that Cooley is a savy vet. I just dont see him being able to contribute in NE. Im sure money had a part to play in Cooley being cut last year, but there was also the fact that his production droped WWWWAAAAAYYYYYY off. Im not trying to bash Cooley. He was one of my very favorite Redskins of all time. I just dont think there is alot left in the tank!

Oh ok. Yeah, good point. It's Paulsen though, not Paulson...

David Paulson plays for the Steelers. Logan Paulsen, plays for the Redskins. Wink

Given that the Patriots have had over a week now to sign Cooley if they wanted to, I think it's safe to close this up. Should that change, we can revisit the topic.

Personally, I think Cooley is happy where he is.
