Riley Cooper

A sports blogger says suspended Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper will never suit up in a NFL uniform again. Cooper, 25, is still feeling the fallout from that N-bomb he dropped during a Kenny Chesney concert last week.

Jay Graves of Baarbershopsports.net theorizes that Cooper is done in the NFL because the balance of power flows from the locker room not from the Philadelphia Eagles front office.

Riley Cooper suspended

This Riley Cooper story has gone from laughable to ludicrous. The 25-year-old Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver was drunk when he used a racial slur at a country music concert. Cooper spazzed out at a black security guard who wouldn't let him backstage to meet Kenny Chesney. "I'll fight every nigger in here," Cooper said.

Normally when a redneck drops the n-word in a room full of rednecks, no one raises an eyebrow. But a concertgoer captured Riley's tirade on a cell phone and uploaded it to YouTube.

The response from the professional football league was swift. Cooper was fined an undisclosed sum of money, and he was forced to apologize more than once.

But that wasn't enough. In a tweet posted today, the Eagles front office announced that Cooper will be suspended from "all team activities" so he can "seek counseling."

Disgraced quarterback Michael Vick has signed a 2-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles under coach Tony Dungy. The Eagles will hold a press conference this morning to announce the signing.

Sources tell ESPN's Chris Mortensen the deal is worth $1.6 million with an option for the second year at $5.2 million. Vick can also earn an additional $3 million in incentives over the two year term.

But that likely won't be enough loot for Vick who is known to burn through cash and lacks even the basic money management skills.

Vick, who was the #1 draft pick by the Atlanta Falcons in 2001, fell on hard times when he was busted for dogfighting. He was convicted and sentenced to 23 months in a federal prison in August 2007.

Vick served his time and was released on July 20. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell conditionally lifted Vick's suspension allowing him to participate in the NFL preseason workouts aqnd team meetings. While Vick can play in the final 2 games of the preseason, he will not be allowed to play in the regular season unless he is fully reinstated by the league.

Goodell has said he will consider reinstating Vick by October 18-19 at the latest.

Team owner Joe Banner said he spoke with the National Humane Society before signing Vick, who will go head-to-head with quarterbacks Donovan McNabb and backup Kevin Kolb for the starting job. "I pretty much lobbied to get him here," McNabb said. "I believe in second chances and what better place to get a second chance than here with this group of guys. ... He's no threat to me, not for Kolb. We had the opportunity to add another weapon to our offense."
