Cotchery Signs For Vet Minimum

I found out that the contract details for free agent wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery, whom the Steelers recently signed, have been reported by Gerry Dulac as a one-year deal for the veteran minimum of $810,000. If this is accurate, the amount the Steelers paid is an absolute bargain on a player with upside and reason to prove himself. Cotchery was set to earn a base salary with the Jets this year of $1.8 million before asking for his release. He has stated that he feels he "fits here" and that he didn't with the Jets. Just goes back to that "Steeler Family" thing we're always talking about, doesn't it?
