Big Ben wants “leader” Cotchery back with Steelers Dan Leberfeld

Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger wants the Steelers to re-sign wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery.

“Without Hines, I think you have to do everything you can to sign Jerricho back,” Roethlisberger said. “He’s not only a veteran leader in that room but a really good player. I’d love to see him come back because he’s a really good receiver and I like what he brings to the team.”

Cotchery was released by the Jets last summer.
