Agree Cooley wouldn't fetch much, but if he has a good year, a 4th might be possible. In the end, something is better than nothing. Moss I think will be cut next few years, Cooley might retire. He just seems to be one of those guys, you know?
But again, I hardly pretend I have all the answers. Lively discussion good.
I am more interested in Morris' ability to pass-protect. If he is good at that and if he can catch passes out of the backfield, perhaps he can be a 3rd down back.
Assuming Davis doesn't get into substance-abuse problem again, Cooley's stay in Wash may depend upon the transition of Nils Paul to TE. If that transition is smoth, Cooley may be too expensive (cap wise) to keep.
Moss's stay may hinge upon how quickly Henkerson develops. While I still prefer Santana, the coaching staff seems to want to go with the younger and bigger Henkerson.
