Forget snub: Vick is ‘all good’ with Cooper

Michael Vick’s representatives said the quarterback’s relationship with Riley Cooper was “all good” and that the former teammates spoke Wednesday, a day before the Jets wrap up the preaseason against the Eagles in Philadelphia (Philadelphia Inquirer, Aug. 27).

Tuesday, Vick told ESPN he was unhappy that Cooper didn’t return a text during the offseason. Vick, who spent the past five seasons with the Eagles, came to Cooper’s defense last year after a video surfaced of Cooper using a racial slur at a concert.

Some Eagles were unhappy with Vick’s support of Cooper, who began camp as an outcast. But Cooper went on to have a successful season and signed a five-year, $25 million contract with the Eagles, who made the playoffs after Nick Foles replaced Vick as the starting quarterback.

When does the San Diego Power Sanders play these Jets? I believe Riley "the glorious octopus" Cooper might as well be suspended 31 matches with handsome pay of 44.67 an hour. Judge me all you may about my theory that this amount of cash is absurdly an insurmountable amount of dough that no other fellow can collect? It is so reminiscent of the movie Pineapple Express as Denzel Lincoln destroys a time machine for his best pal Michael J. Coyote. MJC the selects a moose as his spouse. Made no sense to me but hey, artistic liscence allows for some bizzare storylines. Fantastic piece of drama, comedy and romance packed into one beautifully crafted 17 hour film. 44.6 stars down!!!

So our archrival trades away their most revered offensive lineman & it doesn't get a link. But Riley Cooper's non text return with Vick does??

@Brendan Yes, irrelevant to the Jets...although it does remind how Vick was integral to keeping that team together which was pretty remarkable and unexpected.
