Chris Cooley might get that case of beer after all

When Chris Cooley was working out the details of his return to the Redskins, he joked about a special provision he was trying to squeeze into the paperwork. 

“Literally, I have text correspondence trying to negotiate a case of beer into my contract,” he said at the time. “They wouldn’t do it. I wanted it in writing so much.”

He didn’t get the case of beer clause, but Maryland-based brewery Flying Dog has announced that they’re supplementing Cooley’s contract with the case of beer he was denied. The company had offered to send the Redskins tight end a case of their Shock and Awe variety pack after each of the final six regular season games. 

Here’s the official offer, from the Flying Dog blog. No mention of playoff games, but I’d say those deserve a whole keg.
