Eagles make a surprising announcement regarding the future of Riley Cooper.

Big announcement out of Philadelphia this morning.

The Eagles have made a surprising announcement on Monday cutting ties with wide receiver Riley Cooper just one day after the Superbowl.

This comes after nearly 6 years as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles and on the very first day in which the Eagles were permitted by NFL rules to make the move. There has been rampant speculation that Cooper's role on the team may have been in large part due to his relationship with former head coach Chip Kelly, and some believed with Kelly gone it was only a matter of time for Cooper.

Despite being a serviceable receiver for Philadelphia, Cooper's career highlight in the city will be the racist remarks he made to an African-American security guard at a Kenny Chesney and made him a notorious figure around the NFL.
