- David Newton reports that Cotchery receives a two-year contract worth $5 million.
- Rapoport adds that the final details are currently being hammered out with Carolina.
The Steelers have shown interest in re-signing Cotchery, but it appears as though the Panthers are losing to getting him under contract.
Cotchery, 31, has been a surprisingly effective player for the Steelers. Last year, he totaled 46 receptions for 602 yards receiving and a staggering 10 touchdowns for Pittsburgh.
Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 26 receiver in the league last year.
We have him listed as the No. 47 best available player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
