Roster Move: The #Eagles have released WR Riley Cooper

Cooper, 28, had been with the Eagles since 2010, when he was drafted in the fifth round out of Florida. The Eagles will save $2.9 million against their cap in 2016 by cutting Cooper, who was scheduled to have a cap hit of $5.3 million.

In his six-year career with the Eagles, Cooper caught 169 passes and had 18 touchdowns. In 2015, he had a disappointing year, with 21 catches for 327 yards and two touchdowns.
