Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News is reporting that the Jets are showing interest in free agent wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery.
The Jets have not found a No. 2 receiver on the free agent market yet, and we’re not so sure they’re looking. They’ve only shown light interest in lower-tier wideouts like Chaz Schilens.
Cotchery, of course, knows the Jets well. The 29-year-old spent his first seven NFL seasons with New York’s AFC club before playing last year in Pittsburgh.
Cotchery has enough left in the tank to serve as a capable No. 3 or 4 receiver. The Jets might be looking to bring him back for a minimum salary deal.
In more Jets news, the team announced Wednesday afternoon that it has re-signed kicker Nick Folk.
