Riley Cooper is staying with the Philadelphia Eagles.
CSNPhilly.com reports that the 26-year-old wide receiver will sign a four-year deal with the team on Thursday.
Cooper had a career year in 2013, stepping up in the absence of Jeremy Maclin and developing quick chemistry with quarterback Nick Foles. The 2010 fifth-round draft pick out of Clearwater Central Catholic finished the year with 47 receptions for 835 yards and eight touchdowns. He was tied for third in the league in most yards per catch with 17.8.
The season didn't start well for Cooper. A slow start on the field was compounded by a preseason incident in which Cooper was caught on camera making racial slurs at a concert. He was fined by the team and left the club for a period to seek counseling.
Financial details of Cooper's new deal have not been disclosed.
The re-signing of Cooper could be followed shortly after by the re-signing of Maclin. The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Maclin, who missed all of last season with a torn ACL, is close to re-upping with the team on a one-year pact.
