Coles ready to retire after last stint with Jets

Laveranues Coles’ third time with the Jets will be his last.  Coles says he’s not interested in playing past this season.

“There ain’t no, ‘Want to retire as a Jet.’ This is it,” Coles said
to Rod Boone of Newsday on Monday.  “This is the
last hurrah. The boat stops here, trust me.”

That boat could stop after Week Four, when Santonio Holmes comes off suspension.  Coles said Rex Ryan was honest about that possibility and Coles says that’s fine with him.

“I wouldn’t have it no other way. I think if I walked away from
somewhere else, I think I was going to sign a one-day deal here anyway
just to retire as a Jet,” Coles said.  “It was going to end this way anyway regardless.
Whether they wanted me back here or they didn’t, I still was coming
back. They didn’t have a choice. It was one of those things where I was
walking back through these doors whether they wanted me or not.”

They want him; the only question is how long.  Coles doesn’t sound too worried about the answer.

    Nice to see someone at ease with what is clearly his career winding down. He’s always been a tough bastard.

  4. Philly Cheese says: Aug 2, 2010 2:51 PM

    Personally, I’m kind of relieved. The spelling of his first name doesn’t matched its’ pronunciation and it’s really distracting. Good player, though, just never seemed to be on a proloific passing team when he was at his peak.

    Just like Rex said, everyone wants to be a Jet.
    Who wouldn’t want to play for a franchise that hasn’t won anything in 41 years, that is treated a the red headed step child which played its games in Giants Stadium.
    Hard Knocks this year will be one of the highest rated comedy shows.
    Better known as the Bevis and Butthead show, Rex and Tanny will be on full display spinning the Revis issue that they created themselves.
    Then you have Shake n Bake Santonio Holmes,Droplon Edwards, and the rest of the clowns that think they have actually won something that doesn’t come from trees.

    Good team player…. I hope he does well this season.

    I hate the Jets but Coles was always a tough bastard, gotta love him. He should have plenty of time to learn english in his future.

    It’s good to see the Jets have a whole site pretty much dedicated to hating on them.

    Marino13 proves that he’s an idiot again, attacking ampats for his anti-Jets diatribe. Way to understand sarcasm, buddy.

    I make it a point to never draft anyone who has been raped by another man when they are past the age of 12…..hence ive never had Laveranues Coles on my fantasy teams.

    ——————————————-
    When I mean ideally sure, he wanted to be a Phin just like any player whose spent the majority of his career with one team would want to stay. Once that didn’t happen and he decided he wanted to try and win a championship he came to NY. The fact that he has made it known over the years he HATES the Jets and he still decided to sign here says something. Why do you resort to name calling? Are you not intelligent enough to articulate an actual argument? Yeah the phins are getting younger, faster, and better. Everyteam is trying to do that. You act as if the Jets have an old core of players. All of these players are under 30: Sanchez, Holmes, Greene, Edwards, Cotchery, Keller, Mangold, D’Brick, Ducasse, Pace, Harris, Revis, Cromartie, Pool, Leonhard. We’re built to win now and in the future. Haters gonna hate. And are we complete idiot jet fans as opposed to partial idiot jet fans? How old are you honesltly calling someone a complete idiot, you sound 14.

    After stealing 10.5 last year from the Bengals HE SHOULDNT BE WORRIED….That was the best thief performance you could put on a football field….
    Gone when Santonio comes back unless the Jets experience losses at WR….

    It really don’t help that ALL the “experts” have the junk jets picked to win it all on WHAT, I don’t know??? the Bungals & the Chargers layed down for them in the playoffs & the Colts layed down just so the could get to the playoffs!!! Filling all their heads full of air!!! The AFC East champion this year will be the Miami Dolphins!!! GO FINS!!!

    He wasn’t really a “team player” for the Bengals last year. He’s always been aloof with players and truculent with the media as far as I’ve heard. I give him credit for his effort over the years–even in his subpar season with Cincinnati last season, but to call him a “team player” might be a little bit of a stretch. Regardless, Lav has had a pretty good career, especially for a guy who was the #3 receiver from FSU behind guys like Peter Warrick and Ron Dugans.

    Did you seriously just call a guy named “ampats” who hated on the Jets for his entire Comment an “idiot jet fan?” You were just so excited to let the hating begin you forgot to read AND comprehend (really half the battle).

  30. SkinsFanInNebraska says: Aug 2, 2010 3:58 PM

    He had a good stint in Washington and I’ve always admired him as a player. Glad to see he’s ready to face retirement with dignity and doesn’t plan to bounce in and out like a certain QB we all know.

  31. hendeeze says: Aug 2, 2010 4:06 PM

    What will the Skins do when they need a receiver!

  32. TheToolofTools says: Aug 2, 2010 4:08 PM

    The Browns should have taken a shot at him as our receiving corps is weak…. but that would make too much sense.

    I’m just pissed I got here so late! NYJALLFINGDAY, 123456, Brick-Pride, & even ampats himself already took all the good one-liners…
    I have to restate how Marino13 called ampats an idiot Jet fan though. For that I am sorry ampats… I would certainly never want to be called a Pats fan or a Dolphag fan that’s for sure… eew…

  34. hotchick says: Aug 2, 2010 4:22 PM

    WOW future hall of famers do not attract as many comments as this glorified journeyman does.

  35. Black QB White RB says: Aug 2, 2010 4:34 PM

    Cuz Future hall of Famers WON’T GO AWAY
    Breath of fresh air to hear a guy like that, knows what’s happening, is ok with it, etc.
    never thought he was that great though, but made it a number of years in the NFL. More than the people writing on this site.

  36. bengalsfan1 says: Aug 2, 2010 4:35 PM

    Uh, didn’t Coles “retire” all of last season for the Bengals?

    Yeah, something like “NO ONE ELSE EVEN MADE AN OFFER”.

    Yeah, basically. And to think, SomeFans calls our kind dumb, lol. Long live the south.

    He should have retired a Jet 2 years ago.

  41. GreenAsGrass says: Aug 2, 2010 5:00 PM

    Coles, hate to say it but you are a 4 week rental and I would rather see The Clown make the team than you for just 4 weeks…

  42. Pier588 says: Aug 2, 2010 7:21 PM

    He must have signed for free since Woody doesn’t have any money to pay Revis. If the Jets gave him a nickle they over paid.
