Well, it didn’t take long for one of Cooper’s teammates to come out and question him. It doesn’t really matter what people outside think; what does matter is the guys showing up every day with him.
McCoy said that it hurt “losing a friend” because he “can’t respect a guy like that.” (from Albert Breer). He also wonders if Cooper was showing his true colors in the video where he dropped the N-word in anger.
Keep in mind when talking about the respect of teammates that in the last year, LeSean McCoy was sued for allegedly forcibly removing a woman off a party bus on the turnpike in the middle of the night, and engaged in a Twitter battle with his baby mama where she alleged he had herpes.
