The first major cut down of the season has come and gone. The rosters have been reduced, with more to come at the end of the week. There haven’t been a great deal of guys worth looking into yet, thanks to the increased rosters in the new CBA. We talked about one worthy free agent that the Jets should look into, WR Jabar Gaffney.

Yesterday, an interesting cut happened down I-95 with the Washington Redskins. It was announced that the Redskins had released TE Chris Cooley. Should the Jets look into this guy? I believe that they should.

First of all, he is a veteran presence on the offensive side of the ball. He may not be a wide receiver, as we talked about with Jabar Gaffney, but he is still a veteran. Mark Sanchez has a crop of wide receivers that are severely lacking in experience, as has been widely documented. His experience would be a valuable asset to the Jets offense.

He also has been reliable throughout his career. In eight seasons, Cooley has recorded 428 receptions to go along with 33 TDs. In every season that Chris started in 15 games or more, his lowest reception total was 57. He is an able bodied pass catcher, and is a proven threat, which the Jets are severely lacking.
