Chris Cooley now is a former Redskin and he hasn’t said what his future plans are. But he has hired prominent NFL agent David Dunn and that means that he is at least exploring the possibility of signing with another NFL team.
Where might Cooley land? Here are a five possibilities.
Raiders—If there is anyplace where Cooley could walk in and become a starter, it’s here. Brandon Myers is at the top of their depth chart and Richard Gordon is the backup. That’s not much help for quarterback Carson Palmer as he goes into his first full season as Oakland’s quarterback.
Jets—They are becoming one of the usual suspects when a name player becomes available so you have to consider the possibility. Dustin Keller is a pretty good tight end but they have little depth and you have to think that two quality tight ends would be a nice asset to have in the Wildcat formation.
Bears—Kellen Davis is nothing special and backup Matt Speath is even less so. Jay Cutler needs better targets than that at tight end.
Bills—Scott Chandler isn’t a bad tight end but a team with Gronk and Hernandez playing in the same division should look to do better than Chancler and Lee Smith.
Redskins—You don’t have to parse the words too closely to figure out that when he said Tuesday “for the time being” was his last day as Redskin he was leaving the door wide open to a possible return.
