Roundup: McNabb wants to use TE more

Are we looking at a monster bounce back season for Redskins TE Chris Cooley? New QB Donovan McNabb told reporters (via the Dallas Morning News) that he envisions going to his tight end a lot more this season.

“The success Houston had last year with (tight end) Owen Daniels before he got hurt is something that we’d like to do in this offense, as well as what Dallas does with Witten,” McNabb told reporters during the Redskins’ mini-camp.

This is no surprise, considering that new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan was the offensive coordinator with the Texans last season.

Cooley played in only seven games last season because of a broken ankle, but appears ready to go this year. So tuck this nugget away in your mind when your fantasy league draft has its inevitable run on tight ends during the middle rounds. Cooley is currently ranked as the No. 11 fantasy tight end on NFL.com.

Other news making its way Around the Web on a Monday:

  • Steelers safety Troy Polamalu told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he saw his career flash before his eyes last season. “Yes, it was a concern,” said Polamalu, who attended the team’s mandatory minicamp last weekend. “The hardest thing was if I would have injured it again, the doctor was saying that it will be a career-ending injury, most likely.”
  • Should the Broncos consider trading QB Kyle Orton? Denver Post columnist Woody Paige certainly thinks so. While the Broncos did draft QB Tim Tebow, and trade for QB Brady Quinn, I would like to point out that Orton passed for 3,802 yards, 22 touchdowns and had a passer rating of 86.8. Just saying.
