Via No Guts, No Glory:

Longtime Redskins tight end Chris Cooley was released by the Redskins back in August but never signed with another team. So as soon as starting tight end Fred Davis went down with a season ending Achilles tendon injury, Cooley hoped he would get a call from the Redskins.

The call sure enough came and Cooley was back with the Redskins. But the process of resigning with the club did not go the way of most free agency signings. Instead, Cooley explains a process that only Cooley would be involved in. From the physical, all the way to the contract negotiations.

“I’ve had so many people text, ‘How’d the physical go?’ Literally, you go into the training room, and the doctor’s like ‘How are you feeling, man? Good? Good. Okay, you passed.’

“I think it might be different if I went to another team, or somewhere where they don’t know me. The doctor that did it is the doctor that did my knee surgery before…I mean, he knows me. So it’s not up in the air. I’m healthy. My knees not swollen; I’m not overweight. I’m sure if I was a fat slob when I walked in there yesterday, someone would be like, ‘Hey, let’s run a little bit.’ But I’m in good shape right now.

“Literally, I have text correspondence trying to negotiate a case of beer into my contract. They wouldn’t do it. I wanted it in writing so much.”

Just another reason why Redskins fans love Chris Cooley.
