PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Eagles say Riley Cooper told them about threatening messages he received after a video of him making a racial slur became public.

Cooper, a fourth-year wide receiver, was fined by the Eagles, and then left the team to seek counseling. A video of him using a racial slur at a Kenny Chesney concert in June surfaced on Wednesday.

``Riley Cooper made us aware of the tweets when the video became public,'' the team says in a statement released Sunday. ``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.''
