It took a few days, but the Carolina Panthers finally signed themselves a competent NFL wide receiver, though, the name isn’t likely to impress the faithful.
Cotchery spent the last three seasons with the Steelers (though didn’t play in 2012) and hauled in an impressive ten touchdowns last season, despite only making 46 catches on the season. That said, he proved to be a worthwhile target in the end zone despite his rather slender 6’1 frame.
He instantly shoots atop the Carolina wide receiver depth chart (which is a problem within itself) though would likely prove to be a solid second or third wide receiver in most situations.
Financial details of Cotchery’s contract have yet to be released.
