Less Time In Front Of Mics, Please
Today at Eagles training camp, the guy that your national media told you was never going to play again for the team due to a racist episode, well, came back and played for the team.Now, I'm not going to make the ridiculous mistake of claiming this is a great day for the franchise. The people who will be really happy about this are not people I hang out with. If Riley Cooper is a member of the next Eagles playoff team (earliest possible ETA: 2014), it will be surprising, and if he ever becomes even a relevant performer in fantasy football, it's going to be even more surprising.
A truly great training camp would see several of the lesser-known players taking him out of the lineup (by the way, Russell Shepard is turning heads, for you hyper-deep fantasy leaguers), and if it were not for the injury to Jeremy Maclin, he actually might have been gone.
We'll never know. Maclin got hurt, Cooper takes the spot, and so long as his off the field actions do...
