    The team had a walk through today and then flew down to Washington. Practice was closed to the public.

    Steelers sign Cotchery and other news, notes

    The Steelers signed veteran wideout Jerricho Cotchery on Thursday, adding some key depth to a position that has been banged up considerably at training camp.

    It remains to be seen how Cotchery fits into the wide receiver depth chart, but the Steelers were concerned that they had precious little veteran depth behind Hines Ward.

    Yes, Mike Wallace is an emerging star, but his inexperience showed up in the Super Bowl. And with Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown entering just their second year – and Sanders missing the past two weeks of practice – the Steelers were concerned about what would happen if Ward were injured.

    The move doesn't bode well for Limas Sweed and possibly Arnaz Battle.

    Sweed is all but done in Pittsburgh now, while the signing of Cotchery shows the team has no use for Battle as anything but a special teams cover man.

    © It's a shame rookie Baron Batch suffered an apparent season-ending ACL tear Wednesday. But it opens the door for Jonathan Dwyer to make this team again.

    It also assures Mewelde Moore of a roster spot.

    © Second-year pro Chris Scott missed all of training camp in 2010 with a broken foot, but the Steelers have been impressed enough with his play in camp this year to give him a legitimate shot at starting at right guard.

    At 6-4, 319 pounds, Scott is nearly as big as 2010 starter Ramon Foster, but much more agile.

    I like what I'm hearing from Chris Scott even if he does end up at RG.........The LT spot is still a mess and really the left side of the line is the weak link.......Really the entire starting OL besides Pouncey is average at best but hopefully Scott, Gilbert step up this year and help the OL out......

    Battle might make the team on specials alone. As for Limas, well, I'd be shocked if he made the team at this point and am curious when healthy, what he can actually do. Chances are he will get cut, signed by someone and become a pro-bowl WR.

    He had 9 total tackles on special teams last year, 7 tackles and 2 assists. That is not worth a roster spot when he had 0 receptions. I would expect at least 12-15 tackles with some assists before I would think he would be worthy of a roster spot and a game day spot, especially when we cut it close with active lineman last year.

    ....I know Train you hear all this and that about Battle being such a special teams demon but you never really see it....I'm expecting him to be causing fumbles left and right plus make every tackle on special teams.....Really a undrafted FA could fill his roster spot easily......
