Wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery, who was released by the Jets last Thursday, visited with the Steelers on Sunday but left the team without signing a contract. 

Cotchery has also drawn interest from the Titans and Ravens, and is good friends with Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. It's uncertain whether the Chargers would be interested, however, because they are bringing back Vincent Jackson and Malcolm Floyd. 

One player who was in favor of bringing Cotchery to the Steelers was Pittsburgh wide receiver Hines Ward, who was activated today from the physically unable to perform list (PUP) after recovering from off-season wrist surgery. 

"If we sign him, it would be a great addition to our team," Ward told reporters. "Just look at the wide receiver corps. We've got great talent, but we have no experience."
