Chris Cooley would only play for the Cowboys if the money is right
Veteran tight end Chris Cooley fell victim to a somewhat surprising release earlier this week when the Redskins cut him as part of their roster clean-up. Cooley spent eight years with Washington, the last few of which were plagued by injuries. Now, he is in search of work. With the regular season just around the corner, you might think Cooley is open to joining any team that will have him. That is not quite the case.
During his extended stay with the Redskins, Cooley grew to dislike the NFC East division rival Cowboys. As a result, he doesn’t sound all that willing to join them.
“I don’t think so, but people do a lot of things for money,” Cooley said during a recent interview with the Washington Post.
When you think about some of the stuff Cooley said about Tony Romo last season, that shouldn’t come as a huge shock. The ironic thing about the situation is that Jason Witten has been nursing a spleen injury, so Dallas is one of the teams that could conceivably be in the market for some tight end insurance. From the sound of it, they’ll have to pony up a little more dough than the average team if they want to make it work. And if they did that, Romo would probably be offended.
