Giants to give former Redskins tight end Chris Cooley a tryout

Former Washington Redskins tight end Chris Cooley hasn't played in a game since 2012, but still might be a viable commodity — at least to the New York Giants.

The 33-year-old Cooley, who currently serves as a Redskins radio analyst, has scheduled a tryout with the G-Men on Tuesday, according to ESPN.

Cooley hasn't played a full season since 2010, and was “literally begging” for a chance to tryout with an NFL team this preseason.

The Giants will get a first-hand look at him, and see if he’s physically able to contribute to their depleted and ineffective tight ends squad. They regularly use two-tight-end sets and Larry Donnell and Daniel Fells are the only two active healthy tight ends on the roster. They also have Will Tye on the practice squad.

Cooley's comeback might be harder than he thinks if the Giants defense has anything to say about it. Their former rival had some unflattering things to say about the Giants D before they beat Washington, 32-21, on Thursday night.
