Teammates react to Cooley’s departure

Everyone who follows Washington sports was posting online comments about Chris Cooley on Tuesday afternoon. That included some of his current and former teammates. A few examples:

He helped me get comfortable with this team & this offense. He is a legend in my mind and will be missed. Thank You Chris Cooley

Took me in, treated me like his lil brother & was the one who truly helped me believe that I could play TE in this league. Sad day... #HTTR
