Jets could bring back Laveranues Coles

After two prior stints with the Jets, receiver Laveranues Coles could be returning for a third.

Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com reports that Coles will work out for the team on Friday, and that he could sign a contract to return more than a year after negotiating his release.

Coles walked away from $6 million in guaranteed money that the Jets owed him in 2009 for a crack at the open market.  And Coles pocketed $9.7 million in one year with the Bengals.

In 16 games with 13 starts, Coles caught 43 passes for 514 yards, his lowest output since his rookie year.

Coles was drafted by the Jets in 2000.  He jumped to the Redskins as a restricted free agent in 2003, and he returned via a trade that in part sent Santana Moss from New York to Washington.

In April, Cimini reported that the Jets have “all but eliminated” the possibility of bringing back Coles after trading for Santonio Holmes.

Coles would help fill the void on the depth chart during the first four games of the season, at which time Holmes will be serving a suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.

  1. They’d be better off bringing in Shirley. Even Coles years of being overrated are behind him now.

  2. Good for Coles- who’d have thought when the clothes scandal at FSU broke that he’d have outlasted Warrick in the NFL by a decade??

  3. Bet he’s gonna say the jests promised to pay him the $6 mil guaranteed he passed up on. But then, with that front office they may actually have promised it to him.

  4. The Jets are going to be loaded at receiver. Is there such a thing as a 4 game contract? Just pro-rate a full year $1.2 million contract with a workout bonus.

  5. Coles has made more money for doing nothing than maybe even Albert Haynesworth. Retire already you crook. In his prime he was a madman, tough, good hands, quick, a real asset to his team, except the attitude. He’s crap, he needs to go away.

  6. HAHAH DULFANS still talking trash….worry about your 7-9 football team of women beaters…

  7. Why worry about the Fins when we can laugh at the pot-smoking, erckle-beating jests? I have nothing against indulging in the herb, but it’s kind of stupid to post in cyber-space that you’re doing it when it’s still considered illegal. But hey, he’s a jest now so it’s expected.

  8. dolphin fans are so stupid..the actualy prefer to have a season sweep over the jets then reaching the playoffs and the afc championship game like the jets did..but if they wanna believe they have the better half then ok

  9. Koa, what exactly are you talking about? Who brought up pot? Unless a post was deleted and you’re referring to that or something.

  10. lol even read koa’s posts. they are all meaningless…tune in to see him make fun of rex’s weight or say the well thought up word “JEST”

    Must’ve been deleted because one of the stupid jests fans was talking about all the Fins in trouble but neglected to mention all the jests players also in trouble.

    Wow. I recall reading from several jests fans how getting rid of Coles was the right thing to do and yet, now it’s “a good move to hold the fort”?
