Other teammates have also voiced their opinions:
Jason Kelce on Riley Cooper: “Anybody that knows him knows he’s not a racist … but knows he can sometimes get a little out of control.”

Head coach Chip Kelly said that he was “appalled” at Cooper’s comments, but also said that the receiver was never in danger of being released from the team.
Among Cooper’s most vocal supporters is QB Michael Vick who said:
“What if your son or daughter made a mistake of this fashion, how would you want people to proceed? I’ve been there before. It’s a very delicate situation that we all understand. Somehow we’ve all got to find a way to get past it.”
Hopefully, this will blow over at some point and that it doesn’t divide the team.
