Chris Cooley and A Young Fan Prank Donovan McNabb

Donovan McNabb was traded to the Redskins earlier this year to bring some leadership and experience to help new head coach, Mike Shanahan, in his first campaign. As torn as it makes some fans who have come accustomed to looking down on the QB’s time with rival Philadelphia, it could help an offense that finished 26th out of 32 teams in production.

Of course, TE Chris Cooley stands a very good chance to have a productive season if he stays healthy, and McNabb would be a major factor in that. Regardless of how much the new quarterback could help him out, ever the joker, Cooley still took the time to welcome McNabb to training camp with a little hearty prank. CSN Washington was there to capture Cooley staging the gimmick: a young fan, ready to pop out of McNabb’s locker when he approached. Check out the video above via Shutdown Corner to enjoy McNabb’s reaction.
