Chris Cooley was a long time Redskins tight end, but was cut this off season as the team decided to go younger at that position. As soon as new starting tight end Fred Davis went down for the season with an Achilles tendon injury, many thought Cooley might get a call from the Redskins. It didn’t take long for them to reach out to Cooley as the former Redskin has agreed to terms with the team. What is interesting about this, is what Cooley was insisting on being included in his new deal. Per The Junkies:  Cooley was quoted as saying, “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?

Teams get pass-happy vs. Redskins porous defense

Passing yards are easy to come by when playing the Washington Redskins, to the point where other teams have figured out they don't need to run the ball nearly as much. On first-and-10, the opposition is throwing 58.8 percent of the time, gaining a heel-rocking 8.4 yards per pass. It's pretty easy to keep a drive going when faced with a second-and-1 or second-and-2. That...
