Just read that Jerricho Cotchery has been released (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d8213aa23/article/cotchery-released-but-mason-undecided-on-jets-after-visit?module=HP11_headline_stack)by the Jets. What are your thoughts about looking to pick him up?

For some reason I have always been a fan of Cotchery. He is a well rounded, sure handed reciever, that is a hard worker, with high character.

I would love his leadership on this team, and would love to have him be here for 2-3 years (29 yrs old). Would be a great mentor for all of our young WR's, and would rather bring him in for depth as opposed to the remaining crop of FA WR's. (I know he has never been considered elite, but he has been productive.)

I think we are pretty good on WR right now

I know nothing about him so I looked up his stats. 41 catches for 433 (10.6 ypc) last year. He was hurt last year so he might be a pretty big gamble, but I don't think he'll get a big contract.

here is what ESPN (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/5633/jerricho-cotchery) says about him:

Cotchery toughed out the '10 season with a herniated disc in his back that required surgery this winter. Maybe that explains the crummy production: Cotch set or tied lows in every meaningful receiving stat since he became a full-timer. Of course, he was also playing behind both Santonio Holmes and Braylon Edwards. The Jets didn't give Cotchery a chance to reclaim a starting gig this summer, as they released him in favor of Derrick Mason. That leaves Cotch without a job for the moment, though he'll undoubtedly sign on as someone's possession receiver.

All Cotchery does is catch passes...Great hands, decent route runner. You certainly could do a lot worse for a 3rd/4th WR.

I would prefer him over some of the training camp bodies we have been signing.

i have seen a lot of his games, my wifes a big jets fan. he is not an upgrade over what we have. he has had an occasional good game sandwiched by games where he is non existent and has dropped passes. i also had him on my fantasy team to fill in on bye weeks.

He's gotta be better than the Arena league Wrs we have signed lately.

If he is legit enough to warrant a fantasy roster spot he should be good enough to serve as our 4th WR option in my opinion. I drafted McCluster as my sleeper pick last year and he was our #3WR, he got me jack squat.

My point for this post was to propose the idea of bringing him in as a backup/situational player. He would be behind Bowe, Breaston, and Baldwin. and would be an upgrade from our other options. He has been a successful pro, and I figured he could mentor our younger guys for a year or two.

My Point completely! I'm not saying we sign him to come in a be a starter and replace Breaston or Baldwin. I am saying he would be a nice addition to our recieving corps. He is better than our 4th wr options. (To be honest there was a post earlier that said they were pretty happy with our WR's group as a whole now... my thought is... A team that had to sign Kevin Curtis who hadn't played since week 6 the week of a first round playoff game to man the WR2 position needs alot more help at WR than just adding 2 bodies (Breaston and Baldwin) I love those pickups, but what happens if there are injuries?? back to Verran Tucker??, I just think if it will strengthen the group it would be worth it to give him a shot.

I'm not opposed to bringing him in for depth if he comes cheaply. I'd like to see how he looks in training camp/preseason. I wouldn't spend to much on him, though. He did fairly well last year playing with a herniated disc. If he is fully healed and passes a physical he could help the team.

He would be behind Bowe, Breaston, and Baldwin.

Jerricho Cotchery, WR for the New York Jets at NFL.com (http://www.nfl.com/player/jerrichocotchery/2506004/profile)

Steve Breaston, WR for the Kansas City Chiefs at NFL.com (http://www.nfl.com/player/stevebreaston/2495562/profile)

Dwayne Bowe, WR for the Kansas City Chiefs at NFL.com (http://www.nfl.com/player/dwaynebowe/2495558/profile)

Haven't watched him too much. But, aside from last season, when The Jets added Santonio Holmes to go along with Braylon Edwards, and having been behind Laverneus Coles in prior seasons, Cotcherey has an impressive stat line.

My guess would be that he would challenge Breaston for the #2 spot.

My point was he sucked on my fantasy team. I watched him because i had him as my 5th receiver and he was not good enuf for that spot. he is currently ranked as the 62nd WR behind Breston #58 and Bowe #13
i guarantee if we get him you will be forming a lynch mob for him about mid season.

I doubt anyone would be calling for his head if he didn't work out because I would not be expecting unrealistic results.

I wouldn't expect him to be a star, I wouldn't expect him to be a starter. I would expect to land him fairly cheap, possibly have 25-30 catches this year, a couple hundred yards and about 1-2 touchdowns. I would consider that a success for him as a situational receiver and would not be upset if he didn't post a stat line like this either.

I don't think every FA we pick up needs to be a starter, or a Pro Bowler to be considered a good pickup. I've mentioned about 4 times on this thread that I think he would be a good veteran presence for our young guys, and would be more a talented option at our 4th WR position than what we have available.

Fantasy relevance in no way has to do anything with how much of an asset a guy can be on an NFL team?

How'd McCluster do for fantasy purposes last year? Should we cut him?

Thank you!

I actually mentioned earlier that I drafted McCluster last year in a late round a sleeper, and he sucked balls in the fantasy world, but he can sure cause confusion on the field. Every single time he was on the field, the D make adjustments because he was in the game.

again you miss the point, i said that it was because i had him on my team as well as my wife being a jets fan that i watched nearly all of the jets games last year and paid attention to crotcherys play. he is no upgrade over any of our #3 or #4 receivers.

as for the McCluster comparrison i still think he is a major talent but he had little impact over the last 5 games after opening the season with such a bang.

last 5 games 6 rec 62yds, 7 rushes 11 yds 1fumble
playoff game 4 rec 17yds 2 rushes 5yds 1 fumble

I think Cotchery would be a good 3 or 4 WR. I don't think he is bad at all just buried behind a lot of other good WRs the Jets have.
