    Cotchery is a Steeler. Players changing teams quicker than a model on a run way. S Smith goes to Eagles, S Ellis to Pats, So much for loyalty gotta LOVE IT! lol

    GO PATS!

    Jets have a policy of not paying for what you have done in the past, they hand out reasonable contracts to those who have potential to perform well in the future.

    That and JCo quit on the Jets, he wanted out and they were good enough to honor his wish to be released, dumb move on his part.

    When your building a franchise designed to maintain excellence now and in the future, it is important to know when to cut players who are at the tail end of there career's, andr are likely not to perform up to the standards of there contracts.

    It's a business.

    You know your team better than we do Gun. However from a outsiders perspective I'm glad he's gone. Of all the receivers over the last 10 years I always thought Cotchery would fit in best with what we do here. Even during your teams worst years he was always a handful to cover. I recently thought that Brad Smith would take his role once JC retired but that's not the case now. Who is taking his snaps now?

    PS I think he was a great pick up for the Steelers.

    It looks like Derrick Mason will be taking Cotchery's role, more or less. Not a bad move provided that he doesn't start playing like his age. On the whole though, I dunno how any Jets fan can be thrilled with Braylon and Cotchery becoming Plaxico and Mason. Cotchery was hurt and wanted out, though, so it seems like they made the best of a bad situation.

    I thought everyone wanted to play for Rex? That question sounds like a broken record over the last couple of weeks around these parts.

    Mason flashed skill but his consistency is pretty much gone. I think Plaxico will do ok,probably dominate on some occasions but healthwise he will be a big question mark also.

    Personally, I think the Jets are taking a risk having two old WRs as their #2 and #3 WR, but I don't know if losing Cotchery is that big of a deal. Cotchery has declined every year since 2007.

    Evidently the plan is to replace Cotchery with D Mason. I love Cotch, good guy and an over acheiver.

    The story is he wanted to be the #2 and was upset with the role of the #3, reason being he was looking to sign one more contract and get paid, and the likely hood of getting a good pay day while stuck in the #3 role he felt was slim. Story is he asked to be traded or cut before the lock out. His back injury and his decline in play the last few years where enough for the Jets to grant his wish.

    Brad Smith, another great guy and a play maker. The problem with Smith is the Jets no longer require his services for the amount of dollars it would of cost to resign him. With the maturation of Sanchez the use of the wildcat will be less of a weapon, the new kick return rules, his less then stellar receiving abilities all decrease his value for the Jets.

    I wish them both good health.

    "Jerricho Cotchery" has the anagram "Jeer Yo Rich Crotch".

    Ben will not be amused.

    I think Cotchery just overvalued himself. He thought he could be a #2 type receiver, and with the Jets bringing in Holmes and Burress, figured that he wouldn't get that opportunity and asked out. The Jets must have had an inside feeling that Mason would join them to be their #3 guy, so obliged.

    Cotchery then went to the free agency market and found out that Baltimore didn't even want him, and that Pittsburgh wanted him as their #5 guy. Knowing he couldn't ask the Jets to take him back, and considering if he did, he would have gone back to be the #4 guy instead of the #3 guy since the Jets responded by signing Mason, he felt that he needed to take the Pittsburgh job as his only option.

    He was never a consistent player, but he did make some damn nice catches, which probably made fans think he had great talent, when he was never more than average. That combined with the back injury sealed his fate.

    Gee...thanks. Franchise 101 from a Jet fan???? :confused:

    Another words...your team is finally realizing it needs to emulate the Patriots.

    So he goes from a team I hate.....to a team I respect (and hate). :cool:

    Yeah, he clearly quit on the Jets when he tore his nutsack just to catch a first down from Dirty.
