PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — The Pittsburgh Steelers re-signed wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery Wednesday, helping to solidify their wide receiving corps.
Cotchery reportedly signed for two years. The financial terms haven’t been released.
Cotchery joins Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders on the depth chart, along with restricted free agent Mike Wallace. Cotchery pulled in 15 catches for 227 yards and two touchdowns in the second half of last season.
His biggest impact came in the Wildcard playoff round at Denver, when he caught a 31-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Ben Roethlisberger that sent the game into overtime.
Cotchery and Roethlisberger developed chemistry as the year progressed, as Cotchery slowly moved up the depth chart.
