Eagles' Receiver Riley Cooper Drops N-Word at Country Music Concert

Last summer, Philadelphia Eagles’ wide receiver Riley Cooper made headlines when a video of him vowing to “fight every [n-word]” at a Kenny Chesney concert in Philadelphia last summer surfaced. He later made a public apology to his Eagles teammates and was aided by then-Eagle Michael Vick, who helped Cooper get back in good graces in the locker room by publicly stating that he forgives him to the media.
