The Steelers have brought back WR Jerricho Cotchery, as the NY Daily News reports that Pittsburgh and Cotchery have come to terms on a two-year deal.

Last season in 13 games, Cotchery had 16 catches for 237 yards and two touchdowns, including a TD in the playoff loss to the Broncos that got tied the game in the fourth quarter.

The Jets, the team Cotchery played for from 2004-10, talked to the WR, but he decided to stay with the Steelers.

Report: Steelers Sign Jerricho Cotchery to a two year deal

The Steelers have kept one of their own in bringing back Jerricho Cotchery.  Rotoworld is reporting that the Steelers have re-signed Cotchery to a two year deal.  This is good news for the Steelers.
The Steelers still have to worry but very little about Mike Wallace’s situation.  If Wallace were to leave the Steelers would still have 3 good receivers left on the squad.  Also with Emmanuel Sanders’ injury history it is good to have Cotchery for depth.  His veteran pressence in the locker room will help keep these young receivers grounded.
Cotchery had other offers.  He visited with the Rams and the Chiefs.  The Jets also showed interest in bringing him back to the team.  For him to come back as the fourth receiver when he could have gotten more playing time in these other places shows what kind of place Pittsburgh is.  These guys know what they mean when they play here.  That really sticks out.

Report: Steelers Free Agent Wide Receiver Jerricho Cotchery To Visit Rams Next Week

Manish Mehta from the New York Daily News reports Friday on Twitter that Pittsburgh Steelers free agent wide reciter Jerricho Cotchery will visit the St. Louis Rams on either Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. Cotchery has a link to the Rams as their new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer was the New York Jets offensive coordinator during the time that Cotchery played in New York.

Cotchery reportedly has made at least one other free agent visit to the Kansas City Chiefs since the free agency signing period began and the Jets reportedly had some initial interest in him returning to New Read more [...]

Steelers Free Agent WR Jerricho Cotchery making a visit to the Rams

Steelers Free Agent Wide Receiver Jerricho Cotchery is making a visit to St. Louis according to Manish Mehta.  Cotchery has played for Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer while in New York.  Cotchery would give Sam Bradford a good possession receiver.  The Rams look like they are headed for a ball control offense after adding Steve Smith to Danny Almendola in the receiving core.  Cotchery would fit right in to that situation.
The Steelers are taking more of a risk the longer Cotchery sits on the market.  Cotchery has received interest from the Chiefs and Jets as well.  Sooner or later Cotchery is going to get tired of waiting even if he does really want to stay with the Steelers.  Cotchery is that veteran presence the Steelers want in their locker room to help out the young receivers on the team.  Their money situation while trying to keep Mike Wallace may be tight but it would be a big loss for the team to let Cotchery go.

Report: Steelers Want to Bring Back WR Jerricho Cotchery

Pat Kirwan at CBS Sports kicks off the day with note about the Steelers and how they want to bring back WR Jerricho Cotchery. The former Jets WR, who played well down the stretch last season, remains on the free agent market. A market that still also has Mike Wallace on it at the WR spot, despite the fact he’s a restricted free agent.

I like what Cotchery did last season, and he could be even more valuable this year with Hines Ward gone. Add Ben Roethlisberger to the list that wants to see Cotchery back in Pittsburgh in 2012.

“Without Hines, I think you have to do everything you can to sign Jerricho back,” Roethlisberger said. “He’s not only a veteran leader in that room but a really good player. I’d love to see him come back because he’s a really good receiver and I like what he brings to the team.”

Last season Cotchery had 16 catches for 237 yards with two scores, and a catch for a 31-yard score in the AFC Wild Card game at Denver. If he does come back, and is healthy, I would expect more like the season before in NY, when he had 41 grabs for 433 yards with two scores.

Jerricho Cotchery Hoping For 4 Or 5 Year Deal To Return To Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver that has been in the news the most this past week has of course been Hines Ward. The Steelers have yet to make a decision on Ward returning in 2012 according to Steelers GM Kevin Colbert on Monday and Colbert also added that the Steelers likely will not be able to sign any of their own free agents before March 13th because of salary cap issues. One of their unrestricted free agents that they might be hoping to resign is wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery, who they signed to one-year deal last August.

Cotchery was sidelined early in the season with a hamstring Read more [...]

Steelers WR Jerricho Cotchery Discusses Moving Up Depth Chart

PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Steelers Wide Receiver Jerricho Cotchery joined Seibel, Starkey and Miller on Sportsradio 93.7 The FAN to talk about his expanding role on the team.

It has appeared as though Cotchery is replacing Hines Ward in a number of formations, and he told us what that feels like, and how Ward has been there helping him along the entire time.

When asked where he seems himself on the depth chart, Cotchery said he just views himself as another guy trying to help the team win, and Mike Tomlin creates an environment where everyone feels important does what they’re asked to.

We also talked about the offense running the no huddle, and how Jerricho enjoys running that form of the offense, and why the Steelers having an elite Quarterback makes it easier to run.

We wrapped things up with Cotchery discussing whether or not the Steelers view themselves as the team to beat in the AFC.
