Chiefs CB Marcus Cooper has been working with the first-team defense at OTAs.
Cooper started at left cornerback in nickel packages last season, but will have an expanded role following the release of Brandon Flowers. Third-round CB Phillip Gaines is also in the mix for snaps on the outside. Cooper's play declined late in 2013 and he graded out negatively against the run and in coverage. At 6'1/192, Cooper is a better fit than Flowers in Kansas City's press-man scheme and could make a sophomore year leap. Jun 14 - 10:47 PM

The Chiefs benched rookie LCB Marcus Cooper for Week 16 against the Colts.

Following a very impressive start to his seventh-round rookie year, Cooper had struggled mightily of late, likely losing confidence. The Chiefs went with Dunta Robinson at slot/nickel back, and Brandon Flowers kicking over to left corner. Coach Andy Reid said Monday the Chiefs will still give Cooper an opportunity to "work his way back in," likely by playing in Week 17 while other players rest.

Chiefs claimed CB Marcus Cooper off waivers from the 49ers.

Cooper was San Francisco's seventh-round pick this past April. He'll slot in as depth behind Brandon Flowers, Dunta Robinson, and Sean Smith at corner.

49ers agreed to terms with No. 252 overall pick CB Marcus Cooper on a four-year contract.

The third to last pick of the draft, Cooper is facing long odds of cracking the 49ers' 53-man roster. He should be stashed on the practice squad where he'll be developed as a potential special teamer.

49ers selected Rutgers CB Marcus Cooper with the No. 252 overall pick.

Cooper did not have a ton of starting experience, but he becomes the seventh Rutgers player to be selected. He likely put forward a nice workout for team scouts and caught their attention. He is nothing more than depth.
