Do the Eagles Want Riley Cooper or Jeremy Maclin?
A Profootballtalk.com report suggests that free agent Riley Cooper is more of a priority for the Eagles to re-sign than Jeremy Maclin - this contradicts a Jeff McLane report from last weekend that the team would prefer to re-sign Maclin over Cooper.
In the report by Mike Florio, it's his understanding that "it's not even close" that the Eagles prefer Cooper to Maclin.
There could be some merit to the Eagles interest in Cooper, last week, a league source told Profootballtalk.com that Cooper will be in "significant demand" if he reaches the open market.
PFT is "told" that the Eagles "would like to keep him," but DeSean Jackson is already making $10 million a year, and it's very conceivable that Philly would prefer to re-sign Jeremy Maclin rather than Cooper - though this new report suggest that the team prefers Cooper to Maclin.
But will another team welcome Cooper with open arms? It's a fair question. In July of last year, Cooper was caught on tape letting a racial slur fly while drunk at a Kenny Chesney concert.
So Eagles fan, which wide-out should the Eagles bring back, Maclin or Cooper?
