The Philadelphia Eagles tell TMZ Sports the fact that Riley Cooper was selected as the photo for February in the official team calendar was an “honest mistake” … and they’re looking into it. 

Of course, Cooper made national headlines at a Kenny Chesney concert back in 2013 when he was caught on camera saying, “I will jump that fence and fight every n***** here.”

The Eagles fined Cooper for his actions at the time. He later apologized for his actions and then-QB Mike Vick vouched for him and said he wasn’t a racist. 

Which is why it was surprising that the wide receiver was picked to represent February — Black History Month — in the official team calendar. 

“If anything, it was an honest mistake,” Eagles PR rep Brett Strohsacker tells TMZ Sports.

“It never crossed our minds. I will look into this issue and see what the thought process was.”
