Steelers Free Agency 2012: Jerricho Cotchery Not Likely To Go Back To Jets

Steelers Depot notes that Steelers free agent wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery probably will not re-sign with the Jets, the team with which he spent his first seven years in the NFL. The Jets recently signed Chaz Schilens to bolster their group of receivers, and it sounds like nothing is imminent with Cotchery.

What about Jerricho Cotchery? The Jets reached out about Cotchery last week, but Tannenbaum didn't sound like that's in the cards.

"Nothing on the horizon right now," he said. "Whichever team signs Jerricho will be lucky to get him."

Cotchery evidently visited the Kansas City Chiefs on Tuesday, but it's not clear what will come of that. In the meantime, Steelers Depot notes that Pittsburgh is waiting to find out what happens with Mike Wallace, who is a restricted free agent, so they probably aren't too likely to sign Cotchery right away, either.

Cotchery caught 16 passes for 237 yards for the Steelers in 2011.
