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.
