VIDEO: Former Redskins TE Chris Cooley is good at pottery

By Eric Kay | Staff

It's important to have extracurricular activities once you hang up your ol' NFL cleats. We've detailed some in this space before, including former Rams legend Rosey Grier and his love of needlepoint.

Torch. Passed. Former Redskins tight end Chris Cooley, we now know, is quite handy with the potter's wheel.

Cooley retired this past offseason after a standout career with the Redskins, and is now a radio voice for the team when not creating handmade ceramic goods.

Check out the video below, which interestingly, is produced by Flying Dog Brewery in the spirit of promoting local creativity. Arts and craft beer -- particularly when nearly a part of your team contract -- is not a bad way to go through life.
