The New York Giants currently have the bragging rights in their NFC East rivalry with the Washington Redskins thanks to last Thursday's 32-21 win at MetLife Stadium.
And it looks like the Big Blue could be about to rub it in either further after reports today revealed one former Redskin record holder, three years into retirement, is set to work out with the Giants tomorrow.
As first reported by ESPN Radio 980, their sometime host Chris Cooley is being brought in to be assessed by the New York franchise tomorrow.

Cooley, a two-time Pro Bowl tight end, spent all eight years of his NFL career with the Redskins, and currently holds the record at the Washington franchise for most receptions at the position with 429.
The 33-year-old retired in 2012 with knee injuries having limited his participation during his final few years in the pros, but has recently been looking to return to the NFL.
Redskins fans may not appreciate his liaising with the Giants but, considering the length of time he has been out the league, they can hardly blame Cooley for jumping at the opportunity.
It isn't only Cooley's current status and previous employer that make Tuesday's workout something of a surprise.
With the Giants having a steady starting tight end in Larry Donnell, as well as back-up Daniel Fells on the roster, there hasn't appeared a pressing need for a new man at the position.
Giants fans: Would you take Cooley, and Redskins fans would you forgive him if he signed? Have your say in the comments below...
