GREEN BAY - A Green Bay Packers rookie has chimed in with his opinion about a racial slur uttered by a Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver.
“In my opinion, it’s definitely a derogatory word, regardless of who may use it," said Jonathan Franklin to ESPN's Rob Demovsky.
Cooper uttered the slur at a Kenny Chesney concert. He has since apologized (video below).
