With Braylon Edwards and Brad Smith gone, we figured Jerricho Cotchery’s role with the Jets would only increase.
The team signed Plaxico Burress, but it’s hard to know what to expect from him before he suits up. The Jets are apparently expecting a lot, and that has made Cotchery available.
NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi reports that he’s heard the Jets are making Cotchery available for the right price.
Translation: The Jets want people to know Cotchery is now up for bidding.
We initially didn’t understand this one. Cotchery is one of the glue guys on this Jets team, always willing to accept any role. But the Jets just don’t trust him to stay healthy.
Cotchery was hurt when completing the most badass play of the year in 2010. He also underwent back surgery after the season. That will hurt his trade value.
