Washington Redskins tight end Chris Cooley has retired after nine seasons and is joining the team's radio network.
Cooley will appear each quarter of in-game broadcasts, joining Sonny Jurgensen, Rick "Doc" Walker and Brian Mitchell.
"To add a talent and fan favorite like Chris to our team will add excitement to our broadcast and a level of unpredictability for our listeners," Chuck Sapienza, executive producer for the Redskins Radio Network, said in a statement.
Cooley retires after catching 429 passes for 4,711 yards and 33 touchdowns.
"Chris has shown he has a true knowledge of the intricacies of the game and I look forward to having him share those with our listeners along the Redskins Radio Network," Red Zebra CEO Rick Carmean said.
