The Eagles released a statement on Sunday saying that Cooper was unaware of the video and blocked several people on Twitter who informed him about it. From the team's official website:
"Riley Cooper made us aware of the tweets when the video became public. He told us that he did not know about the video. He informed us he blocked the tweets because he did not know the person nor understand the context of what that person was threatening. We promptly alerted NFL Security. This information potentially speaks to a legal issue that is a matter between Riley and the authorities. Our focus has been on Riley's words and actions."
Crossing Broad, the website that originally published the video, said on Saturday that the person who recorded the video, along with several of his friends, attempted to send it to Cooper. Cooper didn't respond and blocked them on Twitter, leading them to send the video to multiple outlets like Deadspin, TMZ and Barstool.
Cooper was fined and later excused from the team for using a racial slur at a concert. The Eagles have no plans to release him at the moment.
