Report: Eagles To Discuss Extension With WR Riley Cooper At The Combine


Geoff Mosher of CSN Philly reports that the Philadelphia Eagles and WR Riley Cooper are expected to discuss a contract extension at the NFL Scouting Combine later this month.

Mosher adds that the two sides haven’t had any “substantive contract talks” up to this point, but the team is interested in possibly keeping him and fellow free agent WR Jeremy Maclin.

Both of those guys are guys we drafted, we feel they fit into the system,”  general manager Howie Roseman said, “and I think if Jeremy was healthy he would’ve had a heck of a year with us.”

Roseman also mentioned that the wide receiver class in this year’s draft is very deep and cap constraints could force them to consider going that route, versus signing free agents.

Cooper, 26, was forced to fill in for Maclin after he went down with a torn ACL before the start of the season. Despite some off-the-field issues that brought up questions of whether or not he should remain with the team, Cooper went on to have a breakout year fort the Eagles.

He totaled 47 receptions for 835 yards receiving to go along with 8 TDs. We have him and Maclin both listed in our Top 100 Free Agents list.
