Free agent wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery is scheduled to visit the Baltimore Ravens on Tuesday, according to reports from Ravens beat writer Aaron Wilson. The meeting comes two days after Cotchery visited the PIttsburgh Steelers and reportedly took a physical with the team.
Sources close to the Ravens have indicated that Baltimore has an interest in signing the seven-year veteran, but the team is still evaluating its options. Should Cotchery sign with the Ravens, he would join a wide receiver corps led by three-time Pro Bowl selection Anquan Boldin and a slew of inexperienced youngsters.
Cotchery surprised many within the NFL community last week by requesting to be released from the New York Jets. The 29-year-old spent his entire career with the franchise, and was firmly entrenched as a chief locker room leader.
In his time with the Jets, Cotchery consistently provided quality play as a starting receiver, catching 292 passes for 3,370 yards and 16 touchdowns from 2006 to 2009. After struggling through the '10-'11 season with a severe disc condition in his back, he opted for surgery to repair the damage in February.
