A few weeks ago the Kansas City Chiefs had free agent WR Jerricho Cotchery in for a visit. No signing came after the visit but reports this week indicated that the Chiefs, along with the Pittsburgh Steelers and St. Louis Rams, were contenders for the veteran receiver.

According to the NY Daily News, Cotchery agreed to terms on a two-year deal with the Steelers.

He played his first seven years in the league with the New York Jets before moving onto Pittsburgh last season where he caught 16 balls for 237 yards and two touchdowns.

I don't think this is a big loss for the Chiefs but they're still figuring out who that fourth receiver will be behind Dwayne Bowe, Jonathan Baldwin and Steve Breaston. That spots pretty wide open right now.

Cotchery is the second player this week with a Chiefs connection to sign with the Steelers after TE Leonard Pope agreed to a one-year deal with PIttsburgh on Tuesday.
