National Football Post is reporting that Jerricho Cotchery, wide receiver and 7-year vet for the New York Jets, might become available. At 6' tall and 208lbs, Cotchery isn't the looming vertical flyer that Sidney Rice was, but he enjoyed decent numbers with the Jets before they added Santonio Holmes and Braylon Edwards. With both of those guys likely staying, and Plaxico Burress joining the team, Cotchery might be jettisoned to free up cap space.
Is he worth a look? Frankly, I think he is. With an unproven receiver in Michael Jenkins, a disappointing one in Berrian, and a whole lot of unknowns filling out our depth at WR, I'm inclined to hope they go out and pick Cotchery up, should he become available.
Only problem is, the Jets are looking to get a high (possibly first-round) draft pick for him. I'm not sure we can afford to squander a first-rounder when it can be spent on a solid young playmaker next year.
