Redskins Release Longtime TE Cooley

The Washington Redskins have released tight end Chris Cooley.

The 30-year-old Cooley has spent his entire eight-season NFL career with Washington. He has 428 career receptions, including three seasons of at least 70.

Injuries limited him to five games and eight receptions last season. The Redskins plan to use Fred Davis as their starting tight end.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan says parting with the two-time Pro Bowl selection was "as tough as it gets."
