Former Mountain View and Pima Community College wide receiver Jeff Cotton had a workout with the Arizona Cardinals today, and the result was the NFL team signing him to its practice squad, according to multiple sources.
Cotton (6-feet-2, 204 pounds) was on the practice squad most of last season with the Jacksonville Jaguars after he was cut by the Los Angeles Chargers and signed by the Jaguars.
He was activated for one game, against the New England Patriots, and had 14 special-teams snaps and one on offense, with no statistics.
Cotton was released by the Jaguars on Aug. 31 when the 53-player roster was set.
He has worked out in Tucson since, at Jet Sports Training with trainer/owner Bobby Rodriguez, a former Sunnyside and Arizona football player.
After graduating from Mountain View, Cotton was a JUCO All-American at Pima College, catching 43 passes for 837 yards and six touchdowns in 2016. He went on to play at Idaho.
