Jerricho Cotchery On Trading Block?

The NFL Network reported today that the New York Jets have put veteran wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery on the trading block, in an effort to clear more space to pursue other free agents.

This is surprising news considering it remains up in the air whether Plaxico Burress is ready to be a full time number two receiver or not. Behind Santonio Holmes and Burress on the depth chart, if you take away Cotchery is Patrick Turner and rookie fifth round pick Jeremy Kerley. How could the Jets feel comfortable with that situation?

Among the rumored players the Jets could be targeting are former San Diego Chargers wide receiver Macolm Floyd and outside linebackers Matt Roth, Manny Lawson, or Tully Banta-Cain. It would make sense for the Jets to add another linebacker, but be perplexing if they replaced Cotchery with Floyd, considering Floyd could end up costing more. There is a chance the organization isn't convinced Cotchery is healthy as he is coming off back surgery this past off-season.
