NFL: Philadelphia Eagles-Press Conference

There are reports out of Philly that Riley Cooper was not magically healed from racism in four days because he never went to counseling.

“I went out and seeked help,” Cooper said. “I talked to my family and seeked some help. But I’m going to keep that between me and the others that are helping me out. It went well.”

What we know is that Riley went home to Florida and spent time with his parents. So was this all just an a long paid vacation where the Eagles were hoping things would blow over?

Cooper says he spoke with each and every one of his teammates individually and said:

“I told them, ‘I don’t want you to forgive me, because that puts the burden on you. I want it all on me.’ I told them that, and I told ’em I apologize.”

Only time will tell if this will all go away for the Eagles and Cooper. I would bet it won’t though.
