Jerricho Cotchery lands in Pittsburgh

With Hines Ward getting older, the Pittsburgh Steelers decided their roster could use some more depth at the wide receiver position.

Jerricho CotcheryAfter seven years in New York, Cotchery is headed to Pittsburgh.

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that free agent wideout Jerricho Cotchery and the Steelers will agree to terms on a one-year deal later today.

The seven-year veteran out of North Carolina State put together back-to-back 80+-reception seasons in 2006 and 2007 before watching his production drop in each of the following three years, due mostly to the fact that he was playing behind Braylon Edwards and Santonio Holmes.

With Ward, Mike Wallace and Emmanuel Sanders already on the roster, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger now has himself a pretty stacked receiving unit.
