That didn’t take long.

Hours after losing tight end Fred Davis for the season to a torn Achilles, the Redskins have brought back Chris Cooley.

According to Mark Maske of the Washington Post, Cooley will take a physical for the team tomorrow, and barring anything unexpected, will finalize the deal then.

He was hanging around for just such an opportunity, and the fit is an easy one.
