My guess is Cotchery is out for a game or two ( or longer) if this is the case.

I have no problem with it.

Wonder what kind of shape he's in, being out for so long. He can still be a goal threat I would imagine.

Im all for this. Another red zone target besides Heath and add another dimension that we dont possess on the team and thats size at WR. I know it isnt a deal that will brake the bank and with Sanders and Wallace being FA's next year maybe he shows us something to keep him around next year as we let another WR grow?

I like the move.

I was strongly against him coming here last season and this year but considering the situation the Steelers are currently in with a depleted WR corps I wouldn't be against it now.

Not sure how I feel about this. If he's not a headcase and accepts a limited rule (last available option and only a red zone target) then I'll take him back.

Have no idea our commitment to DVD, other than hoping Redman will be back healthy for Browns game and we won't need 5 RB's. Still surprised of the move though. I hope Burress doesn't shoot himself in the foot this time with dumb mistakes!!

Didn't Plax have some Tax issues in PA after he left?
Oh well its a big target in the Red Zone. Could be useful

Plaxico replacing Cotchery. Sounds familiar. Laughing
