Source: “Significant Demand” for Riley Cooper on Open Market
A league source tells Profootballtalk.com that free agent Riley Cooper will be in "significant demand" if he reaches the open market.
The big question is, do the Eagles want to retain his services or will they allow Cooper to hit the open market and move on and focus possibility on Jeremy Maclin or take a wide-out in the draft.
According to the PFT report, the Eagles "would like to keep him (Cooper)," 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.
The 26-year wideout is coming off career highs in catches, yards, and touchdowns while averaging 17.8 yards per reception - a number that could get him a big pay-day on the open market.
Cooper is a big-bodied, 6-foot-3, 222-pound target that meshed with Nick Foles, could that be a key reason the Eagles have to bring him back?
