NFL Free Agency: Titans Would Be Best Fit for Jerricho Cotchery
Jerricho Cotchery's list of prospective team keeps dwindling down with each passing day, and when all is said and done the only team that will benefit him is the Tennessee Titans.
The former New York Jets wide receiver has been looking to go to a team that is close to a Super Bowl, which the Titans clearly are not, but those contending teams don't appear willing to make him an offer for one reason or another.
According to Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens decided against offering Cotchery a contract after meeting with him and giving him a physical. But there were no problems with the physical, which is good news for Cotchery.
So where is there left for Cotchery to go?
He has no other visits scheduled, according to that same report, and the only two teams that appear to be interested in him are the Pittsburgh Steelers and Tennessee Titans. The fact that Cotchery already met with the Steelers and no contract was offered doesn't sound too good for his prospects there.
Thus leaving the Titans as the only real option for Cotchery. They want another receiver to go alongside Kenny Britt and Nate Washington. Matt Hasselbeck is going to be an upgrade over Vince Young, and the offense needs to be more dynamic because Chris Johnson can't do it alone.
As hard as it might be for Cotchery to accept, there just isn't that much of a market for a receiver whose numbers have declined every year since 2007 and is coming off back surgery.
His best will be to take a cheap one-year contract with the Titans and re-establish at least some of his value and go into free agency again next year where he can get a multi-year contract. It is a long shot but there is no other direction for him to take.
