    The Texans have enough recieving threats at the TE spot , if anything they need a bruising blocker behind OD and Graham ... :twocents:

    I like Grahm and think he's going to be fine as a TE for us.

    But besides that, Washington released him because he wanted to be a starter and he wasn't going to be...

    I'm thinking he goes to some team where he can start or at least be a featured part of the offense.

    No.

    Too many injuries, marginal blocker.

    At first, I was like "whoa!" but then I was like "whoa."

    Chris Cooley has had a great career and at one time, he was amazink. Him and Dallas Clark. Great H-Back types of TEs.

    But like everyone else has said, this guy's heyday is past and he doesn't know it. He wants to go somewhere and be a starter, that's not here. He's never been that much of a blocker, and that's really what we need in our 3rd TE (actually 4th behind Casey.)

    If anything, I'd like to find another guy like Casey (athletic FB/TE) who can lead a RB into a hole and make a block but can also get split out wide and stretch the defense as a receiver. Those guys don't grow on trees and I don't think Chris Cooley is that guy.

    Old and unreasonable exceptions.

    I doubt he plays again. He was a Skins fan growing up and played for them. He literally cried at the press conference.

    One of the most underrated player in the league, but I don't know how much he has left in the tank.

    Cooley hasn't been anything in years.

    Wouldn't be a bad pick up or anything, but what would be the point? We've got OD, Thor, and Graham.

    Cooley has no place on this team. You guys must still think that Cooley is that guy that was a FF favorite like 5 years ago.

    Too old and slow. TE's have evolved over the past couple of years. Everyone's bigger, faster, and stronger nowadays...
