Riley Cooper is in big trouble

"I will jump that fence and fight every (N-word) here, bro.”

Patrick McDermott posted a video earlier today of Riley Cooper using a racist slur.

Cooper released a statement through the Eagles:

"I am so ashamed and disgusted with myself. I want to apologize. I have been offensive. I have apologized to my coach, to Jeffrey Lurie, to Howie Roseman and to my teammates. I owe an apology to the fans and to this community. I am so ashamed, but there are no excuses. What I did was wrong and I will accept the consequences."

The Eagles will have a statement soon.
