Riley Cooper Highlights Video 2013

Eagles WR Riley Cooper exceeded expectations in 2013.

It's a slow time of the offseason so I figured we'd look back at some highlights from the Philadelphia Eagles 2013 campaign. Today we look at wide receiver Riley Cooper. Cooper, filling in for an injured Jeremy Maclin, played way better than anyone would have expected. Cooper's 17.8 yards per reception ranked as the second highest of all WRs in the NFL (minimum 75% snaps).

Here is what I wrote about Cooper in the BGN position review series after the season ended:

Stats: 1002 snaps, 47 rec, 835 yards, 17.8 Y/R, 8 TD, 63 Lng, 0 fumbles

Review: What an interesting season for fourth year receiver Riley Cooper. Cooper entered the year largely as a backup wide receiver and special teams player, but was thrust into a starting role when Maclin suffered a season ending injury. Cooper became the focus of attention off the field when a video of him saying a racial slur at a concert went viral on the internet. Cooper apologized for his actions and spent a brief period of time away from the time until they mutually agreed it was time for Cooper to return. Cooper had a rough start to the season on the field as he was largely ineffective. Things changed when Nick Foles took over at quarterback and Cooper became more of a receiving threat. Cooper finished with career-year numbers.
