Uhh... Fargas believes pigeon was deceased teammate Marquis Cooper - Shutdown Corner - NFL - Yahoo! Sports I'm not making fun of a man's death or anything, this is just weird. Like the time shortly after my grandfather died and my dad's phone rang, and when he answered there was no one there. He told us, "I believe that was Dad telling us he made it to Heaven." I didn't have the heart to tell him, "Actually, it was probably a telemarketer."
