Controversial Riley Cooper is Selected as Philadelphia Eagles’ Player of the Month for #BlackHistoryMonth [Video]

Controversial Riley Cooper is Selected as Philadelphia Eagles' Player of the Month for #BlackHistoryMonth

The Philadelphia Eagles tell TMZ Sports the fact that Riley Cooper was selected as the photo for February in the official team calendar was an “honest mistake” … and they’re looking into it.

Of course, Cooper made national headlines at a Kenny Chesney concert back in 2013 when he was caught on camera saying, “I will jump that fence and fight every n***** here.”

Riley Cooper, you might remember, did this. It was a whole big thing, and not even that long ago! Whatever company the Eagles contracted to make their official 2015 team calendar either didn’t remember, or thought it was more prudent to try to get Cooper’s appearance over with in the shortest month.

Cooper is Mr. February on the calendar and February is Black History Month. The Eagles spokesperson tells TMZ that “if anything, it was an honest mistake,” and the team will investigate how this happened.
