Cotchery was a natural candidate to work on the slot position, because he has played in the Jets’ offense for six full seasons and has banked the most time with Sanchez.
He said there are more options in the slot, since your route depends on what the defense is doing, so it’s critical to make good decisions and be on the same page as the quarterback.
Braylon Edwards will command double-teams. This will open the slot for Jerricho Cotchery. However, there is little doubt that Santonio Holmes is the best WR option (once he returns from suspension).
