    Cotchery Visiting Chiefs

    Jerricho Cotchery to visit the Chiefs early next week

    We previously mentioned that the Jets had interest in bringing free agent wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery back to New York. They have competition.
    Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that Cotchery
    is scheduled to visit the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday and Tuesday.
    Several members of Kansas City’s coaching staff have coached against Cotchery in the AFC East, including former Patriots defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel and former Patriots wide receivers coach Brian Daboll. Crennel is now Chiefs head coach and Daboll coordinates the offense. Daboll was on the Jets’ staff as quarterbacks coach in 2007 and 2008, when Cotchery enjoyed two of his better seasons.
    In K.C., Cotchery would compete for playing time with
    Steve Breaston and second-year wideout Jonathan Baldwin.

    I would hope that Cotchery allows the Steelers to match any offer he receives before deciding to sign elsewhere.

    After seeing what the WR market has shaped up to be, I'm confident the Steelers WON'T be able to match any offer Cotchery receives...nor should they, frankly, for a #3 or #4 receiver.

    I'd love to see him come back to the Black and Gold, but I think the only way that happens is if he gives the Steelers a discount.

    We need someone to fill some roster spots. I would like to have him back for insurance. That or we end up drafting a WR yet again. Last year was the first year I can remember we didn't draft one.

    I dont look at it as filling a roster spot, we desperately need an experienced WR to help with these young guys. Ward wont be there and Cotchery could fill that role nicely. Problem for the Steelers is Cotchery probably thinks he can be a #2 in this league (which, for a few teams, is very true).

    As much as we all love Cotchery- the #4 WR position could be filled just as easily by a Lee Evans or Deion Branch- both on the downside of their careers, but easily role-players & experienced vets.

    No need to overpay Cotchery.

    I'd like insurance that we keep Wallace before he walks away.

    Brown is good, but Sanders has yet to show he can stay healthy. No Cotch, no Wallace means we are immediately WR poor. Hopefully we keep Hines number handy.

    Pretty sure he won't sign with the Jets. He didn't like the locker room. Said he wanted a family environment.

    I'm not sure that we are a "poor" WR group as much as thin. I could see Hines getting call, but far more likely is that our draft priorities would change. Remember, Sanders and Wallace were 3rd Rounders and Brown a 6th. Not sure we would see a WR taken before Round 3. However, I would not be totally shocked to see us taking a pass catching TE very early and if we took Coby Fleenor in Round 1 it would not thrill me but neither would it shock me.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!
