Cooper is getting 22.5 million over 5 years, though with only 9 million over 2 years guaranteed. I have a hard time seeing him getting that on the open market. A year ago, Cooper...

Philadelphia Eagles: Why Michael Sam makes sense

NFL prospect Michael Sam, a defensive end coming out of Missouri, introduced himself on Sunday as a football player who happens to be gay.
