The Pittsburgh Steelers added a wide receiver to their roster on Thursday. The Steelers welcomed back veteran WR Jerricho Cotchery with a two-year deal. The free agent receiver had made visits to the St. Louis Rams as well as the Kansas City Chiefs. The addition of Cotchery to the roster now gives the Steelers a solid four receivers for the 2012 season behind Mike Wallace, Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown. The Steelers parted ways with Hines Ward earlier this season and rather than play for another franchise, the veteran receiver announced his retirement. Cotchery played through an injury plagued 2011 season with the Steelers recording just 16 receptions for 237 yards and two scores. The North Carolina State product is entering his ninth season in the NFL. His first seven seasons were spent with the New York Jets and his best season came in 2007 when he recorded 82 receptions for 1,130 yards.   Eric Schmidt is the owner/editor of thepigskinreport.com.
