EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - AUGUST 14: Jerricho Cotchery #89 of the New York Jets on the sideline against the St. Louis Rams during their preseason game at Giants Stadium on August 14, 2009 in East Rutherford, New Jersey. (Photo by Nick Laham/Getty Images)
The St. Louis Rams have been one of the most active teams in the NFL during this year’s free agency period, having hosted numerous free agents and having signed eight of them, including cornerback Cortland Finnegan, center Mike Wells, wide receiver Steve Smith, and defensive tackle Kendall Langford. It is now rumored that the Rams could have genuine interest in signing former Jets and Steelers wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery. In addition to having Cotchery visit their facility five days ago, the Rams have another connection to Cotchery as well: their new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer worked with Cotchery for five seasons when they were both with the Jets.  Signing Cotchery would make sense in that it would give the Rams a veteran presence alongside Steve Smith in their wide receiver corps to help make up for the void left behind by Brandon Lloyd.
