Chris Cooley almost got a case of beer included in his new contract with the Redskins

Over the years, I've heard that certain athletes have put some interesting clauses in their contracts and Washington Redskins tight-end Chris Cooley tried to get a case of beer in his new contract with the team.

The fine folks over at the New York Post have the info you need to know about Cooley's interesting clause:
The 30-year-old Cooley, who signed with Washington earlier this week after tight end Fred Davis suffered a season-ending Achilles injury against the Giants, tried to get the Redskins front office to include a case of beer in his contract before agreeing to the deal.

“Literally, I have text correspondence trying to negotiate a case of beer into my contract,” Cooley told the Sports Junkies on 106.7 FM. “They wouldn’t do it. I wanted it in writing so much.”
Oh well, at least Chris can live with the fact that he tried his best.
