Cotchery

Right. The Jets had $16mil to spend. They need to sign rookies and fill holes at K, P, FS, 2QB, RT, WR, and OLB. I like Cotchery, He's no Jerry Rice but he always played hard. Go ahead and sign him. Its interesting though that the Jets could only afford 1 premium player in free agency and they are choosing to use that chunk on safety. That pretty much guarantees they are not going safety early in the draft.

OLB (Thomas), WR (Cotchery or someone in that price range) and RT (I'm including Hunter here) have been bargain basement types.

Tannenbaum hates having glaring holes going into the draft. He doesn't want to show his hand and he wants to stick to the "best player available" PR. Don't buy into the BS. They have had a plan to draft a specific position all along. The least convincing of the "placeholders" mentioned above is Hunter. There is no way he can be the starter next year. Anyone who watched the Jets last year knows this. And yet they make no effort to sign any other RT.

Why? Because they are drafting OL in Round 1. Yes, I know, there are also very compelling arguments about taking a pass rusher, most eloquently put forth by 73. If they really think an impact pass rusher is available at 16, they may take him and try to plug in a RT later. Looking at the big picture, though, I doubt it.
