The Steelers have signed veteran wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery to a one-year contract, the team announced today. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Cotchery was originally drafted by the New York Jets in the fourth round of the 2004 NFL Draft out of North Carolina State. He spent all seven seasons in the league with the Jets and has 353 career receptions, 4,474 career receiving yards and 18 receiving touchdowns.
The Steelers also have activated offensive guard Chris Kemoeatu from the Active/PUP List, and he is slated to join the team at practice today.
To make room for Cotchery on the active roster, the Steelers have placed defensive end Sunny Harris on their Waived/Injured List. Harris injured his right foot in Friday's night preseason opener at Washington.
