Thu, 20 Mar 2014 10:10:50 -0700

The Carolina Panthers agreed to terms with WR Jerricho Cotchery (Steelers) Thursday, March 20. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Between Cam Newton spending the offseason rehabbing after ankle surgery and the lack of depth at the position, Cotchery is likely a No.4 or No. 5 wide receiver at best. Look elsewhere if you have better options on draft day.

Free-agent WR Jerricho Cotchery (Steelers) left his visit with the Carolina Panthers without a contract Tuesday, March 18, and it's believed he will choose between the Panthers and Pittsburgh Steelers, according to a source. A decision could come as soon as Wednesday, March 19.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers are in dire straights with their wide receiver position. Cotchery is an ideal fit when he provides depth to a receiving corps, but he shouldn't be expected to shoulder the load. Even if Carolina signs Cotchery, expect them to focus heavily on the position in the draft.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Jerricho Cotchery caught his career-high seventh touchdown pass of the year in the team's Week 11 win over the Detroit Lions, and he remains one of QB Ben Roethlisberger's most consistent targets. "Jerricho is a conversion van. He's always going to be there. He's going to tote the family well. He's going to be safe. He makes every catch he's supposed to and makes all the plays he should make. He's an awesome player. He's underrated in this league but he's eating people up in the slot," FS Ryan Clark said.

Steelers | Using short screen passes

Fri, 18 Oct 2013 10:19:52 -0700

The Pittsburgh Steelers went to plenty of three-step drops and short screen passes against the New York Jets in their Week 6 victory with the running game only garnering 73 yards on 26 carries. Pittsburgh had 40 yards on nine receiver screen passes after having 56 yards on those plays in their first four games. "The screens definitely help out," veteran WR Jerricho Cotchery said. "It keeps the defense off balance. You're not letting them tee off on you. That's what it's all about."

Steelers | Jerricho Cotchery breathing easier?

Fri, 09 Aug 2013 11:19:30 -0700

Steelers | Jerricho Cotchery works in slot

Wed, 07 Aug 2013 18:40:25 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Jerricho Cotchery worked with the first-team offensive Wednesday, Aug. 7, on the outside as the "Z" receiver.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if the team is unhappy with Emmanuel Sanders, or if they're simply trying to see what Jerricho Cotchery and rookie Markus Wheaton can do in different roles if needed. Cotchery is still only worth a look as a WR4 or flex option in the very deepest of fantasy leagues at this point of his career.

Steelers | Plaxico Burress unlikely to play

Sat, 08 Dec 2012 07:07:05 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Plaxico Burress is not expected to be active for the team's Week 14 game with WR Jerricho Cotchery (rib) returning from a rib injury. Burress said he would not be a distraction if he does not play. "Like I told the guys upstairs, I am willing to go out and fulfill whatever role is presented to me, and I stand by that," Burress said. "Whenever they put me in the game, I want to answer the call." Burress has yet to make a catch since joining the team. He's been targeted only two times and has played only 12 of 132 snaps.
