Riley Cooper implies Howie Roseman is a racist

102813-howie-roseman-600After the Philadelphia Eagles made a bevy of moves on Monday afternoon, recently released wide receiver Riley Cooper made some unsubtle comments about Howie Roseman and the players he chose to get rid of this offseason.

“You see how fast he got rid of all the good players. Especially all the good white players. He got rid of them the fastest. That’s the truth. There’s a reason. … It’s hard to explain with him. But there’s a reason he got rid of all the white players — the good ones — like that,” Cooper said from his offseason Florida home.

Cooper said it was “more than a coincidence” that he and Kiko Alonso, two white players, were let go or traded by the Eagles this offseason.

“It’s just a shame, really. You see what he did to me and Kiko, and you just have to stop and wonder if he does have a problem. I’m not saying…..but I am saying….something. Use your imagination,” he said, winking at a camera.

When told that Byron Maxwell and Demarco Murray were also traded away from the Eagles this offseason, both African American athletes, Cooper huffed.

“Some things you may say from anger, and I was definitely angry, but I’m not going to change anything I say,” Cooper said. “I stand by everything I said before.”

Cooper said if the Eagles drafted any African American athletes in the upcoming draft they would be “affirming all of my accusations.”

At press time, a panicking Alonso said Cooper “in no way speaks for us both.”
