If this guy gets a second chance buyer beware, because somebody is going to try and knock his freeken head off!
all year long!

The unexpected but not surprising (given the new “retirement” trend among troubled players) decision of Eagles receiver Riley Cooper to step aside from pro football gives the Eagles two things they desperately need.
First, they need to bring an end to what quickly had become a major distraction, both externally and internally. Second, they need to find out if they can function without Cooper.
As one source with direct knowledge of the situation tells PFT, Cooper already would have been cut if Jeremy Maclin hadn’t torn an ACL six days ago. With both Maclin and Cooper gone, the Eagles have DeSean Jackson, Jason Avant, and pretty much no one.
