Cooper agreed to a two-year deal with the Falcons on Friday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Cooper found himself in competition for a roster spot with the Colts last summer until he was forced to exit the preseason finale with a concussion. The former Stony Brook standout was waived shortly thereafter, and he remained unsigned until being added to Kansas City's practice squad in early January before the start of the team's playoff run. Yet to make his regular-season debut, the 25-year-old Cooper is slated to compete for a backup safety or special teams role with Atlanta.
Cooper (concussion) signed to the Chiefs' practice squad Tuesday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports. Cooper suffered the concussion during the preseason and was waived off injured reserve by the Colts in late September. The 24-year-old could be signed for added depth in the secondary should the Chiefs suffer any injuries in their potential playoff run.
The Colts waived Cooper (concussion) from injured reserve with an injury settlement, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports. The undrafted rookie will now be free to search for a special teams role once he's healthy.
