    Chris Cooley's eight-year run with the Washington Redskins is over. The team let Cooley break the news himself in a sudden, although not shocking press conference Tuesday.

    "The Washington Redskins are releasing me today," Cooley said. "This will be my last day as a Redskin. I'm very fortunate to have played for a team and a fan base that have embraced me like they have. This team changed my life. I have every belief that I can still play football at a high level. I'll take some time ... not sure I could wear another jersey."

    The Redskins later confirmed Cooley had been let go in a news release.

    Not really surprising. His receiving skills, running skills have declined and he's played more FB lately than anything...

    I know another NFC East team who could use help at the TE position...

    He's not really a good TE anymore. Some team will sign him though...probably Week 2 or 3 so the salary isn't guaranteed.

    DawkinsINT Tebow free since 9/5/2015.

    He's one of those division opponents that you hated when he burned your team, but had a lot of respect for. It was a little tough hearing him start to tear up in his press conference. I wish the dude nothing but the best in his future, on or off the field.

    Wouldn't mind the Raiders giving him a shot to start. We're so thin at the TE position it's pretty sad.
