Washington Redskins Bring in Some “Chaos”, Resigning Chris Cooley
The Washington Redskins turned to an old, reliable offensive stalwart Monday, re-signing free agent tight end Chris Cooley. This move comes after starting tight end Fred Davis suffered a season ending left torn Achilles in Washington’s Week Seven loss against the New York Giants.
It was a move that was long overdue. Cooley, nicknamed “Captain Chaos” during his first tenure with Washington, was one of the Redskins’ most consistent pass receivers from 2004 until 2011. Cooley’s 2011 NFL season was limited to five games due to injuries. Meanwhile, Davis started twelve games for the Redskins in 2011, and showed enough potential at the position to warrant Cooley’s release before the start of the 2012 season.
Cooley is an excellent fit because he knows the offensive system coordinated by offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. Cooley also has kept himself in good enough football shape to pass the team physical. Plus, he has worked with quarterback Robert Griffin III, so there’s some familiarity there with the franchise quarterback.
In addition, Cooley provides an excellent target for Griffin III, whether the situation calls for a play action pass, or if the Redskins are in the red zone. Cooley caught 83 passes in 2008 for Washington, which definitely proves his capabilities as a pass receiver for Griffin III. But most importantly, Cooley is a professional regarding the game. Releasing Cooley in favor of younger players like Davis is understandable, considering that Davis was a 2008 second round pick expected to contribute.
However, being released in favor of unproven tight ends Logan Paulsen and Niles Paul (who was a converted wide receiver) had to be difficult to accept, but Cooley kept things cordial with the Redskins, the only team he has ever played for, and would even consider playing for again. That cordiality seems to have paid off, with Cooley’s return to Washington. Now it’s time for Cooley to inflict some chaos on opposing defenses. It would be a welcomed sight for Washington Redskins’ fans all over the world.
