Cooley, as a result of wear, tear, and old-age, was recently dropped by the Skins. Following Fred Davis' injury however, Washington decided to be that douchey-but now symphathetic friend who desparately needs someone to take the extra ticket they now have.
Upon his return, Cooley said, among other things, that he tried to get the Redskins to add a special incentive into his contract when he signed to replace the injured Fred Davis.
“Literally, I have text correspondence trying to negotiate a case of beer into my contract,” Cooley told the Sports Junkies on 106.7 FM (via Sarah Kogod of the DC Sports Bog). “They wouldn’t do it. I wanted it in writing so much.”
Whether a “Likely to be consumed” clause would have impacted the Redskins’ salary cap is unclear. We’re trying to get to the bottom of that now.
Now, we dive into the “why the fuck would someone waste time trying to put beer in their contract?…Must be because they're THAT awesome,” never-ending circle of reflexivity. We'll all cheers to that, I guess. Expense it to the Redskins, though.
