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.
