Coles to New York for the third time?
Jets fans, do you remember where you stashed that Laveranues Coles jersey?
As if New York hasn’t already made enough moves during this slower-than-usual free agency period, reports out of the Empire State indicate the team is considering bringing back two-time Jet wide receiver Laveranues Coles, according to Rich Cimini of the New York Daily News.
Coles was drafted by the Jets out of Florida State in 2000 and spent three seasons with the team before joining the Washington Redskins. He returned to New York in 2005 to play four more seasons with the Jets before signing with the Cincinnati Bengals prior to the 2009 season.
The Bengals released the 32-year-old last week after just one season with the team in which Coles caught 43 passes for 514 yards with five touchdowns.
The Jets apparently haven’t ruled out the idea of bringing the veteran wideout back as their No. 3 or No. 4 receiver. The team currently has Braylon Edwards, Jerricho Cotchery, Brad Smith and David Clowney on the depth chart.
