ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -The Washington Redskins signed tight end Chris Cooley to a six-year, $30 million contract extension Saturday, locking up one of the team's strongest and most reliable offensive weapons.
The contract includes $14 million in guaranteed money for the player whose colorful outfits and antics have earned him the nickname ``Captain Chaos.'' He caught 57 passes for 734 yards and six touchdowns last season and led all NFL tight ends in yards after the catch (7.35) and yards after contact (4.1).
A third-round draft pick from Utah State in 2004, Cooley has 165 catches for 1,822 yards over three seasons. His rookie contract was due to expire at the end of this season, and he and the Redskins have been talking about an extension for months.
``It feels so good,'' Cooley said. ``My biggest worry was that I just wanted to be here. I can play my whole career with the Redskins; that's an unbelievable thing.''
