Jerricho Cotchery just didn’t see himself fitting in with the Jets anymore. So the wide receiver did what he felt he needed to do. Cotchery asked for his release, the Jets obliged — and he went shopping.
One week after Jerricho Cotchery was granted his requested release from the Jets, the wide receiver found a new home. The 29-year-old fan favorite is headed to Heinz Field, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ arena. Otherwise known as the Jets’ house of horrors.
Santonio Holmes. Plaxico Burress. Derrick Mason. It’s the Jets’ revamped receiving corps, Mark Sanchez believes it can be even better than the group he threw to last season.
Derrick Mason has signed a two-year deal with New York Jets and said he was “blindsided” by their interest.
With Derrick Mason still reportedly mulling a contract offer from the Jets and Thursday’s late twist that Jerricho Cotchery asked to be released from the team, fans are left wondering: what went wrong?
When you cover an NFL team, just about anything can happen on any day at training camp. Teams are always bringing guys in, cutting players, and repeating the process.
Hard-hitting special teams ace James Ihedigbo won’t be playing for the Jets this season. A person familiar with the situation told the AP that New York will not re-sign the free agent safety.
The Jets released popular wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery Thursday, apparently clearing the way for veteran Derrick Mason to sign with the team. But in a late twist to the story, Rex Ryan said that was the way Cotchery wanted it.
Mark Sanchez was in total control in practice on Tuesday, and that’s the way things are these days for the guy who carries his team’s Super Bowl hopes on his shoulders.
Jerricho Cotchery and Damien Woody would be recovering and working at their team’s facilities had there been no lockout. They normally would be fighting the itch to rush back and join their teammates for minicamps and the like. This year, they might be benefiting from the work stoppage.
Welcome back, Jets? Three players were at the team’s facility as of late Friday morning. However, according to multiple reports, the NFL has received a temporary stay of the injunction — meaning the lockout may be back on.
A day after a federal judge ended the NFL’s 45-day lockout, a small group of Jets showed up at the team’s facility Tuesday but were told they would not be allowed to train or work out.
Sunday’s loss to the Steelers “was probably one of the toughest losses that I’ve had,” said Jets wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery on Tuesday morning with Joe & Evan.
There’s really no other way to say it. The Jets failed to capitalize on an opportunity to go to their first Super Bowl since 1969.
After New York’s wild on-field celebration in Foxborough — complete with Braylon Edwards’ backflip — Patriots wide receiver Deion Branch called the Jets “classless,” a description that irked the Jets’ cornerback.
