PFT: Cooley tried to negotiate beer into new Redskins deal

There’s a reason Chris Cooley was so popular in Washington, and why his comeback triggered a media tour.

ROFLMBO! Only Chris Cooley. I really hope he can have a great second half of the season and give us two or three addtional years of great play at TE.

I dont know if you guys read more of the text correspondence but it's clear he really doesn't want to play for anyone else. Love that guy, he's one of very few 'new era' players that are core Redskins

Love the man's spirit....always have. I have no doubt he'll be great in the locker room, will block well enough, and even get open underneath for possession type catches.

Oh, got you. I followed that link, but only skimmed it, thinking that was interviews he had done. Thanks!

Just one case? And they wouldn't go for that?

He should've asked for a six pack for every reception and a case for every TD. :pint:
