Jerricho Cotchery to Sign With Pittsburgh Steelers

He played the Steelers for a spot in the Super Bowl. Now he will play for them.

Former Jets wide receiver agreed to terms with the Pittsburgh Steelers today.

The seven-year veteran was released by the Jets last week. Cotchery gives the defending AFC champions some needed depth at wide receiver behind Mike Wallace and Hines Ward.

Cotchery is a class act, and I wish him nothing but the best except when he plays the Jets.

This does seem a bit odd, though. He asked for his release because he did not want to be the third receiver here. Now he is definitely going to be behind Hines Ward and Mike Wallace on Pittsburgh's depth chart. On top of this, Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown are probably going to push him harder than anybody low on the Jets depth chart would have.

Perhaps he is more willing to be the third guy with another team than with the team he was the number one guy as recently as 2009. Still, it seems like there might be more to the Cotchery episode than we know. The entire story might never come out.
