Philadelphia Eagles “over” Riley Cooper situation

John Geliebter-USA TODAY Sports

Riley Cooper returned to the Philadelphia Eagles and practice today. He has asked teammates not to forgive him to keep the burden on himself.

“I don’t want you to forgive me, because that puts the burden on you,” Cooper said.

The Philadelphia Eagles locker room, which was divided over the situation at one point, has seemed to moved past the situation according to receiver Jason Avant.

Jason Avant has always been on the “quick to forgive” side of the locker room along with Michael Vick. Other players, like LeSean McCoy said they were having a harder time forgiving.

While Cooper’s teammates are moving forward this will forever be a footnote on Cooper’s resume.

“It’s going to be tough,” Cooper said, via NFL.com. “I’m going to live with this every day for the rest of my life.”

Rookie head coach Chip Kelly might have dodged a bullet. He reached out to Tony Dungy on how to handle the situation and it seems like it’s paying off as the team moves forward with camp.
