The Pittsburgh Steelers have reached an agreement on a two year deal with veteran wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery, a league source confirms a report from the NY Daily News. The paper work is being finalized right now and the team will announce the deal shortly. The deal is worth around $3 million over two years.
Cotchery back in the fold is big news for the Steelers who now appear unlikely to address wide receiver in the top-2 rounds, unless the right player is there in round 2.
Cotchery has been viewed as a priority for months and Steelers GM Kevin Colbert and agent Jack Scharf have been in constant contact throughout the process.
Cotchery who drew interest from three to four teams, visited the St. Louis Rams and Kansas City Chiefs.
The Cotchery signing is an important one as the Steelers now return one of the deepest wideout groups in football in Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown, Emmanuel Sanders and Cotchery.
