    The Philadelphia Eagles announced Monday they have released veteran wide receiver Riley Cooper.

    Cooper, 28, had been with the Eagles since 2010, when he was drafted in the fifth round out of Florida. The Eagles will save $2.9 million against their cap in 2016 by cutting Cooper, who was scheduled to have a cap hit of $5.3 million.

    In his six year career with the Eagles, Cooper caught 169 passes and had 18 touchdowns. In 2015, he has 21 catches for 327 yeards and 2 touchdowns.
