Jerricho Cotchery Visits Steelers

We mentioned the possibility of the Steelers adding former Jets wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery back on Saturday, but the Trib has more on the possible addition.

Jerricho Cotchery, an eighth-year NFL veteran, visited the Steelers at St. Vincent on what was an off day for the players ...

The Jets released Cotchery last Thursday at his request ...

The Steelers and Ravens are among a handful of teams interested in Cotchery.

Cotchery had back-to-back 800-yard receiving seasons in 2008 and 2009. But the main attraction right now is that the Steelers need bodies at wide receiver. Hines Ward still isn't practicing, Limas Sweed is now hurt, Antwaan Randle El was a salary cap casualty, and Emmanuel Sanders will be out for a few weeks with foot issues. If all the usual guys were healthy and available, the Steelers probably wouldn't be pursuing Cotchery, since depth at wide receiver appeared to be one of the team's strengths during the offseason.
