In his goodbye press conference, a tearful Cooley said it would be tough for him to play for another team, and no doubt means that. But he was recently asked if he would play for the rival Cowboys, to which he responded, “I don’t think so, but people do a lot of things for money.” While I’m sure it wouldn’t be ideal for him, he realizes this is a business and has to do what he has to do.
