One year after Laveranues Coles smartly turned down $6 million from the Jets, the veteran receiver happily returned to the team for $855,000.
A lot can change in the NFL in one year, and Coles knows where he stands after signing a one-year deal with the team on Friday for his third stint with the team.
“It’s an insurance policy for them,” Coles told Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork. “Those first four games
are very important for the team to get where they want to go. It’s an
opportunity for me to come in and see what I can still do, but there’s a
slim chance I’ll be there after four games. There’s a good chance I’ll
get released; it depends on how things go. They were honest and open
about it. It is what it is.”
Two more turns in New York, and Coles will tie Billy Martin.
