Steelers add Jerricho Cotchery

Jerricho Cotchery AP

Jerricho Cotchery is heading to Pittsburgh.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Cotchery will agree to terms on a one-year contract with the Steelers today.

Cotchery was a fourth-round pick of the Jets in 2004 and has played his entire seven-year NFL career with the Jets. He became a full-time starter in 2006 and had three very good seasons, but in the last couple of years he’s been largely phased out of the Jets’ offense.

The Steelers had been talking up the possibility of getting tight end Heath Miller and receiver Tyler Grisham more involved in the passing game, but they apparently wanted another option and settled on Cotchery.

    Steelers get older…while the Ravens get younger.

  2. nyjetsfootball says: Aug 11, 2011 2:09 PM

    good move, solid player. all around good guy.. he will be missed

  3. gnyj85 says: Aug 11, 2011 2:10 PM

    Good pickup, hes a reliable receiever. Knows exactly where the marker is on third down and will get there. He will be missed..

  4. june20102002 says: Aug 11, 2011 2:11 PM

    As Curly Bill Brocius told Wyatt Earp on the way out of town in Tombstone … “well, bye”.

    Don’t see where he fits with all those receivers.

  5. ticalcaldwell says: Aug 11, 2011 2:11 PM

    “the Ravens get younger”…lololol…That is the first I’ve ever heard that…getting younger..good one

  6. nyjalleffingday says: Aug 11, 2011 2:11 PM

    The Ravens are gonna regret not picking him up now

  7. bozosforall says: Aug 11, 2011 2:12 PM

    Nice move, Steelers. Will more than make up for the loss of Randle-El, if he can stay healthy.

  8. flicka727 says: Aug 11, 2011 2:12 PM

    Great pickup. Excellent slot receiver and I’m sure we didn’t pay an arm and a leg for him.

  9. ticalcaldwell says: Aug 11, 2011 2:12 PM

    I would not have done this if I were the Jets…Plax is too unknown right now..I would at least keep him as some sort of insurance…plus Plax is already dinged up…

  10. daburgher says: Aug 11, 2011 2:13 PM

    Can’t believe the ravens didn’t sign him.. they really need help at WR.. I think Jerricho will be good for the steelers but I really wanted to see Tyler Grisham get his chance.

  11. ampats says: Aug 11, 2011 2:13 PM

    Still can’t believe the jets let him walk just to replace with over the hill receivers.

  12. mpjets says: Aug 11, 2011 2:14 PM

    unleash hell jerricho as mike tomlin would say… goddamnit. Jet for life no matter how many tds you catch from the rapist

  13. steeelfann says: Aug 11, 2011 2:15 PM

    The man wants a ring.

  14. livxsiv says: Aug 11, 2011 2:16 PM

    Doesn’t make much sense for a guy who wants more playing time.

    Who will he split time with? Mike Wallace, Hines Ward, or Antonio Brown?

    He had a better chance playing for the Jets, and waiting for Plax or Mason to be injured.

    The Steelers add another stud. That’s what we do. It’s sad how teams try to follow our example and fail miserably. Keep trying. LOL

  17. tramonwilliams38 says: Aug 11, 2011 2:17 PM

    atleast we all can agree that Jerricho Cotchery is way better then my name is too skinny plaxico burress and i think i deserve number 1 reciever money but i will be out of the league in a year for good!

  18. steelersmichele says: Aug 11, 2011 2:19 PM

    I don’t understand the conern with the receiving corp (unless there is something they’re not telling us) when we just lost Batch for the season…picking up another running back seems like a better option.

  19. trenaro says: Aug 11, 2011 2:19 PM

    Not getting this one. They have Wallace, Brown, Sanders, Miller, and Ward.

    Speaking of the Ravens and their age:

    Bengals safety Roy Williams, Saints fullback Heath Evans, pro golfer Mark Calcavecchia and motocross rider Mike Metzger have all told ThePostGame they have used The Ultimate Spray. SWATS founder Mitch Ross provided several text messages from a phone number belonging to All-Pro Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis acknowledging receipt of shipments of the spray and asking for more.

    NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told ThePostGame last month he hopes the league can begin testing for IGF-1 and HGH under the new collective bargaining agreement. He added that the league can suspend a player without a positive drug test “if we have substantial evidence.

    Steelers get better … While the ravens don’t .

  25. gulaid26 says: Aug 11, 2011 2:24 PM

    As a Steelers fan, I don’t get this. Unless Hines is more banged up than i thought, but then he wouldn’t be practicing. Oh well they’re smarter than I am.

  26. rooneyruleblues says: Aug 11, 2011 2:24 PM

    Can we take bets on how many games into the season it will be until Big Ben gets caught raping again?

  27. theredbengal says: Aug 11, 2011 2:24 PM

    @Rayvens: please, spare me your nonsense. The Stillers clearly signed Cotch as insurance.

    I agree. This is just going to take snaps away from Brown and Sanders.

  30. psmith7716 says: Aug 11, 2011 2:26 PM

    I like this move. Hines is getting up in years, and we do not have much experience behind him. I think with the young receivers we have, this will put us in good stead.

  31. boothisman says: Aug 11, 2011 2:27 PM

    Smart signing.. He wants a ring, plain and simple.. It came down to the AFC North and the Steelers picked him up just so nobody else in the division can.

  32. zensteeler says: Aug 11, 2011 2:29 PM

    If ya don’t know… It’s Jerricho.
    Plexico woulda been nice but this guy is a vet who catches the damn ball. Nice pick up under the radar.

    Yeah, but Steelers have receivers..who do the Ravens have…Anquan Boldin….anyone else? No Mason, Heap, Stallworth, Houshmandzadeh..

    Enjoy losing again!!!!

    ? Ricky Williams is 5 years older. Getting younger?

  35. tramonwilliams38 says: Aug 11, 2011 2:30 PM

    suprised the eagles didnt sign him

  36. finster1989 says: Aug 11, 2011 2:31 PM

    Ravens will never finish better than 2nd in the AFC North. History has shown that the Steelers are just a better team from top to bottom.

  37. ny82jy says: Aug 11, 2011 2:33 PM

    Great move JCo. You left the Jets for more playing time and what do you do you sign with the Steelers where you will probably play less. Amazing but o well good luck in Pitt i will always be a fan i just dont get his thinking.

  38. latrobe21 says: Aug 11, 2011 2:35 PM

    This does nothing to excite me, unless it means that Sweed is gone. Steelers need to get back to drafting intelligently and developing their own instead of signing has beens.” They are on the right track with Wallace, Brown and Sanders. Just don’t see this move making sense.

    ________________________________

    Mason is a great replacement for Cotchery and most important hes not injured and wants to be on the team unlike Cotch. Its not like JCo is Holmes, hes replacable and Mason is a proven vet who will do just fine, esp with Kerley the rookie whos the talk of camp backing him up. It was a no brainer. Surprised your Pats didnt go after him.

  40. ottograham says: Aug 11, 2011 2:40 PM

    @ any ravens fan

    Remember when Ray Lewis went to TRIAL for his incident? Remember when Ben Roethlisberger WASNT even CHARGED with any form of sexual assault? Look, not saying the man was a stand up guy by any means. At least drop the subject. It’s old news and so is the squad in Baltimore. Yeah, Pittsburgh may have an issue with age defensively. But we will still compete for a title and guaran-damn-tee we go further than Baltimore. FACT: We love owning the AFC North Annually.

  41. clayton43 says: Aug 11, 2011 2:42 PM

    Great move by the Steelers !!! While I have been dissapointed that we didnt get CB help instead.. They got him cheap and we may need him. Injuries happen and the Steeelers will use 4 WR sets. From previous reports Pittsburgh told him he would be coming in as the 5th WR to start …Why not take a proven WR coming in as number 5 for a year ?? Gives Big Ben another weapon in ccase of injury.. and people have been going down early so far. Great pick-up.

  42. carnboys says: Aug 11, 2011 2:45 PM

    go jump on the band wagon steelers fans. half of the fans don’t live in pittsburgh. when the old steelers start showing there age. they will jump on the washington redskins band wagon. it was a good run. its time for the big boys to take over. tied of hearing the whinning steelers cry about the rules

  43. packerrube13 says: Aug 11, 2011 2:46 PM

    Um Ravens fans saying the Steelers got older? Jerricho Cotchery is 28 or 29. He was born in 1982. He’s younger than your top WR. And isn’t that the team that just added Ricky Williams? Hmm…

  44. ytownie says: Aug 11, 2011 2:50 PM

    Looks like Hines is a goner! Too bad guy, you had a nice run. Question now is who will take your place as the dirtiest WR in the league.

  45. svcfilmguy says: Aug 11, 2011 2:51 PM

    Ah, yes. Bringing up bandwagon fans. The last resort of the intellectually bankrupt.

    Anything substantial to add, carn, or are you just a troll I fed?

  46. blahblahblah333 says: Aug 11, 2011 2:52 PM

    Funny…Ravens fan always first to bring up rape. Things happening in Baltimore that the rest of dont know? Why dont you bring up murder, drugs, vehicular homicide while under the influence? Must have forgot about all the that. Maybe its lack of confidence in your QB that has you all angry. Cotchery was brought in for insurance because of Hines age and not knowing for sure about Sanders foot problem. Once i’d like to come in here and read about the topic and not about things that only swirl in your little Raven minds. I always see more Raven people commenting on a Steeler story than anybody else. Then again, I would be angry too if my OB had a uni-brow and has a terrible record against his chief rival. Keep talkin…week 1 isnt that far away.

    “Again” implies there was a first time.
    Nice try though.

  49. sophiethegreatdane says: Aug 11, 2011 2:54 PM

    Yawn.

    Steelers are headed for another Super Bowl hangover. Wallace is quick but has hands like feet and couldn’t catch a cold. Ward is way beyond the days of any serious productivity, so they had to get a guy that basically everyone else passed on — even those teams that are routinely bashed for “having no one at WR.”

    Yeah, everyone is just terrified of Cotchery, Wallace and Ward. I’d take Anquan Boldin over EVERY SINGLE WR ON THE STEELERS ROSTER any day of the week.

    Hey Steelers — go pick up Houshyamomma while you’re at it. Then you could have six unproductive wide receivers sitting on the bench as the Ravens pound the rock down your cookie holes.

  50. carnboys says: Aug 11, 2011 2:55 PM

    Pittsburgh, Your time is running out. Don’t whine and make excuses. They are just lucky.

    You better fine another team. What about the GreenBay Packers. They are young. They may be good for the next seven yaers

    Maybe, the refs can help you win a couple of games this year. you are done.

  51. svcfilmguy says: Aug 11, 2011 2:58 PM

    “Yeah, everyone is just terrified of Cotchery, Wallace and Ward. I’d take Anquan Boldin over EVERY SINGLE WR ON THE STEELERS ROSTER any day of the week.”

    Deal! Judging by recent history between these two teams, we’re really making out here. Thanks!

  52. henrykissingerisgod says: Aug 11, 2011 3:00 PM

    This is a good signing. Wallace is the only reliable wr on the roster. Although, he still has to develop as a more complete wideout.

    Ward is getting even slower and at his age can not be counted on for 16+ games. He also is coming off of his worst season in awhile. I wouldnt think a rebound is coming.

    Sanders is only in his second year and had a couple surgeries this offseason and needed the practice to become more consistent. He only had 28 catches for 376 yards and 2 tds last year.

    Brown did not even really start to dress last year until week 13 and had only one game where he had more than one catch which was against the ravens. The 3rd and 19 really gave him press for what was an uneventful rookie campaign. 16 catches for 167 and no tds. The trouble with brown was that he could not learn the offense. He could only learn one position. If you remember in the superbowl when sanders got hurt randle el filled in for him because brown could not mentally. So to count on him would also be a stretch.

    Sanders and brown wont reach their full potential until next year and with a team built to win now this was a great signing.

  53. rmm1984 says: Aug 11, 2011 3:02 PM

    To anyone saying the Steelers are done, have you ever watched football? This is a depth signing as a 4th or 5th WR. Also, the Steelers won a superbowl with Randel-El and Cedric Wilson as the #2 and #3 WRs.

  54. carnboys says: Aug 11, 2011 3:03 PM

    you are done pittsburgh. we are going to pound the ball right down you throats and then open up play action. You are done. The GreenBay packers are looking good pittsburgh fans. Jump on the band wagon. Before its to late.

  55. svcfilmguy says: Aug 11, 2011 3:03 PM

    Also, pound the rock down our cookie holes? Really?

    Game 1: 70 yards rushing.
    Game 2: 43 yards rushing.
    Game 3: 35 yards rushing.

    We’re very scared.

    Give it up, sweetie. You’re in over your head here.

  56. jeffa43 says: Aug 11, 2011 3:03 PM

    Sanders recovering from surgery… Wallace knicked up, Ward is now your 3rd option, maybe 4th. With Wards age, a couple injuries this is a safe and smart move.

    Brown and Sanders should have great years if they stay healthy. This just adds depth.

    Love the best tight end in the game….. Heeeeeeeeath!

  57. jeffa43 says: Aug 11, 2011 3:05 PM

    Raven fan may be better at talking crap, they have plenty of losing fuel in them.

    Steelers are just better on the field….

    So Raven fan has that going for him, which is nice.

  58. blahblahblah333 says: Aug 11, 2011 3:06 PM

    Boldin over Wallace?? Boldin over Ward?? Granted Ward is past his prime but c’mon. I would take Boldin…if I had a different QB than Flacco. Boldin probably would agree.

  59. henrykissingerisgod says: Aug 11, 2011 3:08 PM

    sophiethegreatdane

    actually mike wallace was the most efficient wr in the nfl last year. bold was like 30… ward was even ranked higher than boldin. wallace had a 61% catch rate whereas boldin had a 59% rate. so if wallace has feet like hands what does bolden have? oh ya it seems like you forgot that the most important catch bolden could have had last year he dropped in the endzone….

    why dont you look at stats before you post some one way mumbo jumbo…it took me 4 mouse clicks to find those numbers lil buddy

    and ya the steelers are getting older, it was a 1 year deal to bridge the gap so the youngsters can have the appropriate amount of time to develop

  60. blahblahblah333 says: Aug 11, 2011 3:08 PM

    Drugs must be good wherever Sophie is from to say Wallace has hands like feet. An up and coming very, very good, young receiver. Keep showing the ignorance I love it.

    I’m going to keep posting this until Steelers fans come up with something other than “Ravens are old 6 rings herp derp”

    Avg age of Ravens Offensive Starters: 26.8 (24.5 with Reid instead of Cousins)
    Avg age of Steelers Offensive Starters: 26.8

    Avg age of Ravens Defensive Starters: 28.1 (27.6 with Smith instead of Carr or Foxworth)
    Avg age of Steelers Defensive Starters: 30 (31 with Smith instead of Hood)

  65. cousinrk says: Aug 11, 2011 3:10 PM

    Nice job JCO, you forced your release because you wanted to be a starter so you go to a team stacked at WR so you can be a #5 instead. Nice career move.

    JCO was a terrific possession guy but he had a really bad year last year with a lot of drops which is not normal for him and he had back surgery as well. So I’d be weary about how much he’ll give Pitt.

  66. pittsburghpoonslayer says: Aug 11, 2011 3:13 PM

  67. svcfilmguy says: Aug 11, 2011 3:14 PM

    @carnboys
    Your spelling and grammar skills are just painful to see. Also, a lot of people move out of the burgh, but still support their team. I grew up there and I now live in NC and guess what? Yep, I still support the steelers. I’m not saying there arent any bandwagon fans for the steelers, but most are just displaced fans from Pittsburgh. True Steeler fans would never stop supporting their team.
    PS you should really check into hooked on phonics.

  70. dasportsninja says: Aug 11, 2011 3:18 PM

    The Steelers will have a Huge step back this year. I love my team but I have to be honest. Our O-Line is in bad shape. I watched 3 preseason practices. We can’t run block or pass protect right now. I am not sure what is going on, but instead of signing a 3rd receiver that’s on the decline we should have gone after an interior lineman that can run block. We are the Steelers and we need to rush the ball.

  71. polishrod says: Aug 11, 2011 3:18 PM

    Its official, the Steelers have the most overrated WRs in the league.

    Cotchery had one good season for a horrible Jets team.

    Wallace is decent, probably a #2 or #3 elsewhere

    Hines is tough as nails, and as old as Methuselah

    Sanders/Brown are no better then Limas Sweed. Ok, slightly better then Limas and a lot worse then Randle-El

    Miller is the most overrated TE in the league

  72. mvpolamalu says: Aug 11, 2011 3:22 PM

    Ed reed age 32
    Troy polamalu age 30

    Ray lewis age 35
    James harrison age 33

    Mike wallace age 25
    Anquan boldin age 30

    The ravens may have younger no names, but their stars are older. And 6 beats 1(super bowls, ravens fans probably didnt get it, not as intelligent)

  73. carnboys says: Aug 11, 2011 3:23 PM

    Pittsburgh is a good football team. They won 6 superbowls. Big Ben threw a touchtouch with a BROKEN nose last year.

    Can this finally be a sign that the Steelers are serious about putting the ball in Roethlisbergers hands? This really solidifies that WR corps.

    I always felt that they didn’t pass enough (especially in the red zone) last year. Can’t believe the fans who say the opposite– that we don’t run enough.

    FACE IT. DURING THE SEASON THE LUCKIES TEAM USUALLY WINS THE SUPER BOWL. THEY GET THE CALLS AND THE BALL JUST BOUNCES THERE WAY. REMEMBER FRANCO’S CATCH. THE BALL WAS TOUCH BY A OFFENCE PLAYER. THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN CALLED BACK. AGAIN THE TEAM GOT THE CALL AND WON THE GAME. SOMETIMES ITS NOT HOW GOOD YOU ARE IS HOW LUCKY YOU ARE. DOES YOUR PLAYER STAY HEALTHY.
    DO YOU HAVE GOOD BACKUP PLAYERS. REMEMBER ANY TEAM CAN WIN ON ANY GIVING SUNDAY. REMEMBER THAT WHEN YOU COUNT YOUR RINGS. ITS ALL ABOUT LUCK AND MAYBE SOME SKILL. STAY HEALTHY. I DON’T WANT TO HEAR ANY EXCUSES.

    No. No, you don’t. You don’t have anything. You didn’t do anything. The only thing you have is an unemployment check and a one way ticket to another city so you can infest another town like rats. And then complain about it.

    Hey Mustard-Pant Morons: if you’re so interested in titles, why not just get off the Stillers wagon and support the Packers? I mean, they own 13 NFL titles.

    I hate both of these teams. Flacco is crappy QB who made Boldin irrelevant at WR. He constantly checks down. Pittsburgh gets away with beating inferior teams to get recognition. In 2008 they beat an 8-8 chargers team and then the ravens, and then the Cardinals. Finally they face stiff competition in the Packers and get flat out embarrassed. I loved every minute of it. Now Harrison runs his mouth and makes them look even more awesome. Seriously, you play Cleveland and Cincy twice a year.

    @june20102002 …

    The Steelers wanted a veteran receiver to play the slot. Cotchery wanted a more prominent role, but finally agreed to terms. You get points for quoting Tombstone …. even if that line didn’t make a lot of sense in this context :)

    @sophiethegreatdane …

    I’m looking forward to watching Boldin drop more game-changing passes like he did against us last season. Maybe they’ll bring Housh back so he can repeat his big drop, too.

    @carnboys …

    No need to SHOUT. Yes, the pendulum swings. Teams have up years and down years. I waited 26 years between championships. But there’s no reason to find another team when yours is having an off year. What kind of fan is that?

  101. ravensnation3478 says: Aug 11, 2011 4:42 PM

    I love how all these Squealer fans have Baltimore or their minds! Losing some sleep are ya?? Keep talking about how the Ravens don’t have any receivers and when Ozzie adds a veteran thru a trade at the last minute like usual and our “young” receivers blow past your aging and injury prone DB’s for easy TDs, you all can dry your tears on your yellow snot rags! The Ravens WILL dominate the Squealers this year and take back the AFC North. Rise up Ravens Nation! It’s our time! Besides everyone knows when the Squealers make it to the Superbowl they don’t even make the the playoffs the following year! Go Ravens!!

  102. tyler200829 says: Aug 11, 2011 4:43 PM

    Man the ravens are desperate for WRs? haha, looks like you are. And like some of my fellow intelligent Ravens fans already posted, its hardly been owning since youve only won the division outright once in the past five years, and weve made the playoffs the second most times in the AFC behind the colts.

  104. holeinone09 says: Aug 11, 2011 4:43 PM

    I remember last year at this time, when many were predicting the Steelers to finish in the bottom of the division. LOL. It is the same thing every year. Just look at the many stupid comments above! Many posts don’t even make sense. @carnboys must be sweating from posting, to the point he was YELLING in his last post, as if he can change history or impact what will happen. And you still got the old Ben rapist jokes, that are now quite boring and don’t impact anything.

    Before the season begins, everyone supporting every team has hope. Then, the season starts and reality sets in, week after week. That is when the men get separated from the boys, and the contenders get separated from the pretenders. That is why it is good to be a Steelers fan! The Steelers on average pile up more wins than losses, no matter the injuries, the issues, etc. And more often than not, they make it into the playoffs, where anything can happen. Fact is, there are so many Steelers fans at our away games that they are like most teams’ home games. Steeler fans travel well but live everywhere!

    I for one can’t wait until the Ravens game opener in their stadium! Bring it on! The Steelers should have a sour taste from losing the Super Bowl so closely after having played such a flat game and giving up too many turnovers.

    GO STEELERS!!!

    to get a better idea of superbowl comparisons you must use percentages…there have been 45 superbowls…the steelers have been around for all of them and have won 6.

    that is 13.333% of superbowls…

    the ravens have 1 superbowl in 15 years which equals 6.6%

    that is double lil buddy…

    feldman9000

    so the steelers got embarrassed in the superbowl huh? i guess you consider getting blown out by having the ball in your hands with 2 minutes left to win the game…i guess you consider losing by 10 or more points some of the biggest blowouts in the entire history of the nfl hahahaha the packers were the better team that day but it sure was close for all of those turnovers

    i was proud to be a steelers fan that day, they were down 21-3 and never quit…they fought until the end…there are not many teams that would do the same

    Wow a Bengals fan talking smack. Great organization and fan base, your starting QB chose to retire rather than play another year of a crappy team and blacked out games.

    As for the Ravens, 21 wins and 12 losses is domination of an opponent. But rest assured that we don’t own you, because who would want to own that crap hole of a city. Marvelous location for your sports stadiums…garbage incinerator on one side and a decayed downtown on the other.

    bengals fans should not even be allowed to post. your team is irrelevant. the pittsburgh pirates have won a playoff game more recently than the bungles…

    the bungles are easily the worst franchise in all of sports…dead last

    the bengals have won 5 playoff games in their entire history, the steelers have that many playoff wins in the 2004-2005 seasons…now that is embarassing

    not to mention the bengals have 18 seasons in which they lost double digit games (that is 10 or more for the morons)

    the steelers have double digit losses only 4 times since the merger (which is when football started to matter)

    the bengals also lost 12 games or more 10 times whereas the steelers never had even one of such woeful seasons

    but hey, you guys swept us in 2009!

    Ray Rice, in 3 games against the Steelers in 2010 ran for 84 yards and 1 touchdown. Way to take it to em. And that’s when BAL had some receivers to worry about too.

  114. bryjord says: Aug 11, 2011 5:25 PM

    Someone said Sanders is much worse than Randle-El and about the same as Sweed?

    Are you high? Emmanuel Sanders had a very productive rookie season, which in todays NFL is not an easy thing. He is a very solid option and will be a big target on this team when healthy. Brown is not the best route runner but again, he is coming off of his rookie season. They both showed very high potential and are in no way over-rated.

    Some people don’t watch the games and therfore should not speak about them.

    I think this is a clear cut sign that the Steelers have officially given up on Limus Sweed. The guy just can’t stay healthy. I can’t wait to see the first time we line up in a five-WR set, against the Ravens, and they say WTF??

    Talk about sticking talent: Wallace, Ward, Cotchery, Sanders and Brown. Now that’s a WR group.

  121. mikebrownistheworstownerinprosports says: Aug 11, 2011 11:10 PM

    I’m well aware the Bengals suck…that still doesn’t change the fact that the Steelers have finished BEHIND them in the division twice in 6 years. That fact must really burn you up.

    That fact really doesn’t burn Steeler fans up, since we don’t really think about the Bengals all that much to start with.
    By the way, how did the Bengals do those 2 seasons they finished ahead of Pitt? Oh yeah, I know! One year the Steelers came in as a WC and whipped your asses on your own field.

    I’m sorry you are a Bengals fan, and I can only imagine how hard it is to root for them. I do give you credit for backing your team.
