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.Oh well, at least Chris can live with the fact that he tried his best.
“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.”
