Default Steelers court former Jets WR Cotchery

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt.../s_750462.html

Quote:
A week after wooing Plaxico Burress, the Steelers are meeting with another free agent wide receiver.

Jerricho Cotchery, an eight-year NFL veteran, is visiting the Steelers today at St. Vincent. Cotchery had been with the New York Jets since 2004 but the 6-foot, 207-pounder became expendable, ironically enough, after the Jets signed Burress.

Cotchery, 29, underwent back surgery during the offseason after catching 41 passes for 433 yards and two touchdowns in 2010.

His best season came in 2007 when Cotchery caught 82 passes for 1,130 yards and two touchdowns.

Maybe this could give us some security since injuries are amounting on the Steelers, especially from the offensive line and the wideouts forefront. Eager to see if we can land someone who can come in and have an immediate impact on our football team to give us insurance at any position, especially o-line or WR. If we land a talent like Cotchery, then Limas Sweed's time is up and will become the biggest bust of this decade not named Alonzo Jackson.

Lee Evans is also available, however, unless Sanders cant go at all I would rather keep a young player on the roster than cut one to siogn a middle of the road veteran.

It would be nice to have another good receiver, I just don't see it being Cotchery. He does play well though, and if we have the money to get him then it couldn't hurt trying him out. I rather see Sanders and Brown I think, I just don't see him making that big of an impact. His numbers are good, just doesn't seem like a fit here.

Cotchery is a stocky muscular receiver that does not go down very easy after the catch. Youtube has some nice highlights of his career with the Jets. I assume with his body type he would be a good blocker. He makes the spectacular catch at times as well. Well liked by Jets fans and teammates, he may have lost his job simply because the Jets lucked into Santonio Holmes. He would win some ballgames for us this year, but the development of Sanders and Brown would be delayed.

We won't sign him anyway. Better deals for him will be out there. He was due over 4 million this year.

Sure, let's pay him to spend all season rehabbing his ACL, assuming he'll even be able to come back at all.

It's a security blanket move. If Sanders and Brown are healthy, they make
the team and this guy is cut (if they sign him to begin with).

He's not overly big (6', 200 lbs) or overly fast (4.5+ forty) and his stats
are dwindling at this point, going from catches in the 80s a few years
ago (2006, 2007) to 41 last year for a 10 ypc avg. He would be signed purely as
depth in case on of our young guys can't stay healthy.

http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/stats/...richo-cotchery

But this _does_show you the staff is at least a little concerned about Sander's chances
of getting healthy. Also, this clearly shows a lack of faith in Sweed. Remember when
some of you were claiming this was going to be Sweed's year?
