Jets may bring back Drew Coleman

Veteran cornerback Drew Coleman was released by the Jaguars this week, but he probably won’t stay out of work for long.

Coleman’s agent told the New York Post that the Jets, who drafted Coleman in 2006, are one of three teams that have already expressed interest in Coleman.

As Alper noted shortly after Coleman was cut, Coleman was a disappointment in the Jaguars’ defense but a pretty good slot corner for the Jets, both in coverage and coming on blitzes — he had four sacks in 2010, his final season with the Jets. Coleman was also a good special teams player, and it would make a lot of sense for the Jets to bring him back.

Coleman played for the Jets from 2006 to 2010, playing in 67 games and starting nine.

    He was a disappointment in the Jaguars defense? Most Jaguars fans were upset when he was released. He was a very good nickle corner, but the coaching staff decided they wanted more versatility and Coleman couldn’t play on the outside or special teams.

    I agree with the others.. He wasn’t close to a disappointment. He was above average playing the slot and made a couple of game changing plays. As a Jags fan, I am sad to see him go and wish him the best.

    Not a disappointment! Just lacked the versatility that the new staff wants. The lack of research most national media does on the Jags team is astounding…

    he was terrible for the jets..i dont want him back.

    he would allow almost all passes to be completed but he had the ability to force a fumble after completion, which was awesome.

    if he wants to come back..uh vet min.
