One of my personal favorite Jets of all-time is Jerricho Cotchery. Reliable, consistent and always made the tough catches when the Jets needed it throughout his seven years with the green and white.
Cotchery is infamous with some fans for a statistic many wish was broken already. Cotchery was the last 1,000 yard receiver for the Jets. Yes that was back in 2007 as the Jets haven’t had a 1,000+ yard receiver in nearly a decade.
As depressing as that statistic is, let’s get back to why Cotchery is deserving to be on this list. So far in his NFL career, that was his lone 1,000 yard campaign. But to make this list you don’t have to have a bust in Canton.
Throughout his prime with the Jets, he was best when playing 2nd or 3rd fiddle in the passing game. Taking advantage of slower linebackers or smaller corners in the slot, Cotchery proved his worth every single time he was on the field for the Jets.
