The Jerricho Cotchery race, if there is such a thing, is apparently down to three teams and the Kansas City Chiefs are among them. Tony Pauline of Sports Illustrated and Draft Insider is reporting that the St. Louis Rams and Pittsburgh Steelers are the other two.
Cotchery visited the Chiefs earlier this offseason, so it’s not surprising the Chiefs are on his radar. Last season, Cotchery had his worst season statistically since his rookie year in 2004 with only 16 catches for 237 yards in 13 games for the Steelers. However, it’s all about how he is used and Cotchery has exhibited an ability to be a strong asset in the passing game in years past with the Jets.
The Chiefs already have Dwayne Bowe, Steve Breaston and Jon Baldwin among receivers at this point, so there’s definitely room for one more productive wideout. The news might wait until after the draft or perhaps Cotchery will make up his mind soon. If so, it would be another solid addition in free agency for a team that’s already made several impressive moves.
