Riley Cooper not expected to sign with Buccaneers after tryout
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not expected to sign former Eagles WR Riley Cooper after a three-day tryout with the team during rookie minicamp, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times on Twitter.
It is fair to wonder whether this might be the end for Riley Cooper. Cooper was a decent wide receiver during his time in Philadelphia, but he quickly fell out of favor after a video surfaced of him using racial slurs while at a concert. It seems that no NFL team wants to weather that kind of baggage in order to employ an average-to-below-average wide receiver, as the Buccaneers are one of the few teams to show interest in the last two years.
