Eagles Coach Doug Pederson Interested in Bringing Back Nick Foles


The Philadelphia Eagles are likely going to rebuild their team after the Chip Kelly fiasco ended with Kelly being fired. One of the first victims has been announced, as the team has parted ways with wide receiver Riley Cooper. This comes after a flurry of signings and extensions of current Eagles players.

Releasing Cooper helps the Eagles save some money and create some cap space, though they will still be responsible for his guaranteed money. Riley Cooper had a disappointing ending to his tenure with the Eagles. He became a surplus receiver this season with 21 receptions for 327 receiving yards and two touchdowns. It was his lowest receiving total since the 2012-2013 season.

Cooper was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the fifth round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He will end his tenure with the Eagles with 169 receptions for 2,418 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns. Eight of those 18 touchdowns came during his career best season in 2013 when he also set a career high with 835 receiving yards.

The controversial figure almost got released by the Eagles after an incident at a Kenny Chesney concert back in the summer of 2013. The team stuck with Cooper as long as they could but his production simply didn't match his contract.
