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.

I think everyone can remember the madness last year when Warren Sapp implied that the Pittsburgh Steelers were too old to be considered an elite team. The Steelers did a great job of proving Sapp wrong both with the teams' overall on field performance and the way that the younger backups stepped up thru injuries. So just as the offseason passes us steadily by and we almost have...

The Steelers brought back three offensive lineman this week in Ramon Foster, Doug Legursky and Trai Essex. All three players are back on one year deals; Foster and Legursky signed their restricted free agent tenders and Essex signed a one year deal to return to Pittsburgh. All three players played m Continue
The Steelers have BYU defensive tackle Hebron Fangupo and Wayne State safety Jeremy Jones in for pre draft visits on Friday to close out the week according to a tweet by Steelers Digest.
Fangupo measured in at the combine at 6011 and weighed 323 pounds. He ran the 40 in 5.18 seconds to go along with a 4.62 short shuttle time. He put up 36 reps on the bench and had a vertical jump...
At one point ESPN draft guru Todd McShay had Jonathan Dwyer ranked as a top 30 prospect for the 2010 NFL Draft. McShay had Dwyer rated as high as number 3 on his list of top running backs available in the draft. However, questions about Dwyers conditioning and work ethic came into focus following a Continue
If you viewed the signing of Jerricho Cotchery yesterday as just another typical Pittsburgh Steelers’ free agent signing you wouldn’t be alone. As it turns out, developments later in the day could suddenly make this signing one of the larger ones in recent Steelers’ free agent signings.
Not long after it was announced that Cotchery had signed a two-year deal, third year receiver...
Wide receiver Mike Wallace reportedly refuses to sign his one-year tender of $2.7M with the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Wallace wont be able to participate in OTAs if he doesnt sign the tender, and could ultimately end up being a holdout in Training Camp, as he covets a lucrative long-term deal. It is still too early to consider red flagging...
Trai Essex posted on twitter that he is back with the Steelers. Essex will compete as a back up and will probably play the swing role that he has played over the past few seasons. The Steelers still need depth at all offensive line positions and Essex can play them all.
The incomparable Chris Mueller had me on the Late Shift Show early this morning on 93.7 The Fan to talk a little Pittsburgh Steelers. Chris and I talked about the recent re-signing of Jerricho Cotchery as well as the signing of free agent tight end Leonard Pope and I gave my thoughts on both. I was then asked about a few of the needs the Steelers have in the upcoming draft and what...
The market for restricted free agents is pretty soft, but Steelers WR Mike Wallace is the clear gem. With the deadline for RFAs to get offer sheets from other teams, the interest has been slim across the league. Plus, was a parting shot at Tim Tebow in Denver deserved?
The Steelers have kept one of their own in bringing back Jerricho Cotchery. Rotoworld is reporting that the Steelers have re-signed Cotchery to a two year deal. This is good news for the Steelers.
The Steelers still have to worry but very little about Mike Wallace’s situation. If Wallace were to leave the Steelers would still have 3 good receivers left on the squad. Also...
