Scot McCloughan: Cooley's a Great Redskin, But I'm Not Going There

Redskins GM Scot McCloughan talked to reporters after the Redskins final open practice of training camp

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Redskins GM Scot McCloughan addressed a few things after today's practice, the final open practice of this year's training camp.  He addressed the season ending injuries that have taken a toll on the Redskins TE depth, the speculation that Chris Cooley could return, and how RGIII did in the first preseason game of the year. The Redskins worked out two tight ends today, with another one possibly later today.  The Redskins could also wait to place Silas Redd on IR due to the loss of Tevin Mitchel on waivers recently.

Injured TE's:

Options at TE:

Jordan Reed:

McClougahn said he was “very comfortable” with the 6-foot-2, 237-pound Reed, despite his track record of missing games because of injury (12 in the past two seasons). “He’s very athletic. He’s a mismatch for a lot of safeties and linebackers. I’m excited to see him once he’s back on the field.”

Bringing Cooley Back:

Bigger Offensive Line:

Asked what he saw from the youngsters, McCloughan said: “A lot of power. A lot of size. If you saw the game, it was impressive. They’re still learning; they’ve got a ways to go. But it was impressive. But it was very cool to see, especially on the second series, to see them coming off the ball and moving people.”
