Chris Cooley retires, joins Washington Redskins radio broadcast team
I’m sure this’ll be resolved fairly,” Miller tweeted, acknowledging he had seen the reports and adding he was disappointed the Broncos have to open training camp with this news hanging over them. A person with knowledge of the situation confirmed the possible penalty to the Associated Press. — Cornerback Eric Wright failed his physical with the San Francisco 49ers , nullifying a trade with Tampa Bay. He was subsequently released by the Buccaneers. ETC. Kings, Ducks invited to national camps A number of Kings and Ducks players were invited to the orientation camps being held by USA Hockey and Team Canada for the Winter Olympics , which will be held in Sochi, Russia, in February. The Kings who are invited to the U.S. camp Aug. 26-27 in Arlington, Va., are goalie Jonathan Quick and forwards Dustin Brown and Trevor Lewis . The Ducks who are invited are defenseman Cam Fowler , forward Kyle Palmieri and a highly touted prospect, goaltender John Gibson.
The team is very encouraged at his improvement and that the medical staff believes he can participate in camp, sources said. NFL Network reported Monday that Griffin will not be placed on the physically unable to perform list to begin camp. Shanahan’s coaching staff will involve Griffin on a limited basis initially, using him in 7-on-7 work before allowing him to advance into team drills, according to sources. “It’s great news,” right guard Chris Chester said. “I’m really excited about it. It’s a great chance to continue from where we left off last year.” Griffin’s injury and subsequent rehabilitation overwhelmed the Redskins’ offseason. He led the club to its first division title in 13 years in 2012 and was chosen the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year, and his unique talents are needed if the team is to sustain that momentum. Griffin injured the knee multiple times last season. He missed one game after spraining the LCL, then reinjured the knee at least twice more in the playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks in January. He had surgery a few days later.

Redskins’ Robert Griffin III cleared to practice
This is a great deal for me. I really want this job, and I want to do it for a long time. Cooley, 31, ends his playing career after nine seasons all with the Redskins. He was released in training camp prior to last season, but the Redskins re-signed him after starting tight end Fred Davis suffered a season-ending injury in October. Cooley said he would not file his official retirement papers with the NFL immediately, leaving open a slim possibility of a return as a player. But he said he does not intend to play again. That door would be open a crack, Cooley said. But do I plan to play?
Should the Redskins Allow Robert Griffin to Play in the Preseason?
If he were entering his rookie season, it would be a different story. But RG3 proved he’s capable of high-caliber NFL quarterback play in 2012. He led the Redskins from 3-6 to 10-6 and was integral in the club winning its first NFC East title since 1999. Griffin III threw 12 touchdowns to only two interceptions in the six games he started and won to end the year. During that span, he tacked on 286 rushing yards as well. His knee injury looked relatively gruesome and with major damage to both the ACL and MCL, the most intensive form of precaution should be taken. It doesn’t appear the Redskins have rushed back RG3 in any way, shape or form this offseason, and they shouldn’t get overly anxious to get him back on the field for any part of a meaningless preseason. Al Bello/Getty Images Sure, RG3 has been Adrian Petersonian in regard to the speed of his rehabilitation process, and there’s a chance the world-class athlete returns to pre-injury form just like the Minnesota Vikings running back did coming off his catastrophic knee injury a season ago. But much more harm than good can could come from Griffin III playing in a preseason outing. He has a firm grasp on the offensealthough one can expect he won’t be running as often in his sophomore campaignand doesn’t necessarily need to acclimate himself to the quickness or complexity of the NFL game. Should Robert Griffin III play in the preseason? If totally healthy, yes Submit Vote vote to see results Should Robert Griffin III play in the preseason? If totally healthy, yes 100.0% Total votes: 1 Teams are adamant about not showing or tipping any of their regular-season plays, tendencies or wrinkles in the preseason, anyway. So even if opposing defenses have new plans to stop Griffin III, they likely won’t be implemented on the field before the regular season. Even as a newcomer in 2012, Griffin III only threw 31 passes in the preseason, 17 of which came in the third exhibition game.

Redskins test out recovering RG III
However, defensive end Adam Carriker, who tore a quad in Week 2 of 2012 and needed a follow-up surgery during the offseason, will likely begin camp on the physically unable to perform list. Orakpo looked good while the others were recuperating in the spring. But as has been the case since he was drafted second overall in 2012, everything Redskins revolves around Griffin. The 2012 Offensive Rookie of the Year was held out of OTAs and minicamp as he continued to recover from Jan. 9 surgery on his right ACL and LCL. Griffin wants to be ready for the September 9 opener against Philadelphia, but coach Mike Shanahan was the target of complaints that Griffin returned too quickly last season, so decisions are expected to be made carefully and in conjunction with Dr. William Andrews. Absent Griffin, the Redskins are a far different time, but fellow second-year veteran Kirk Cousins did well when called on last year and will get plenty of reps with the first team while Griffin works his way back. Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett has to figure out who the safeties are after an ugly 2012 campaign on the defense’s back end. Washington is counting on a healthy Meriweather — limited to one game last season because of three injuries to his right ACL — and the addition of rookies Phillip Thomas and Bacarri Rambo, each a big playmaker in college, to fix the safety woes that were a headache in 2012.
