Granted, Jerricho Cotchery has been a backup for most of his career and is about to turn 32, but Cotchery will soon be the top receiver on the Panthers’ depth chart.
Last year Cotchery played in all 16 games and started six for the Steelers, catching 46 passes for 602 yards and a career-high 10 touchdowns. It was his third season in Pittsburgh; he previously played for the Jets from 2004 to 2010.
Cotchery was also weighing an offer to return to the Steelers, but instead he’ll call Carolina home this year.
