Two triggers are sufficient IF one of the flash units is mounted on the RF trigger that is mounted on the camera.  This would be your fill light for the off-camera flash.

If you want to buy a cord just be aware that it will represent a tripping danger.  Tripping over a cord, or just moving too far away from the corded flash can result in you pulling over the light stand or pulling the camera out of your hand.

You will also be limited to optical triggering of the second flash, which doesn't work well outdoors or around corners.

I would recommend going with three YN-622s instead of a cord but if you must buy a cord then check out the one from Syl Arena, author of the Speedliter's Handbook.
