Is Coles the answer? Craig Thomas
There have been numerous reports saying the Jets are interested in free agent wide receiver Laveranues Coles.
The latest was in Pro Football Weekly.
“WR Laveranues Coles is still a free agent, and the Jets, who reportedly have been in contact with his agent, remain a potential destination for him,” wrote PFW. “The team will be without WR Santonio Holmes for the first four weeks of the regular season while Holmes serves a suspension, and could use a servicable veteran like Coles to bolster depth at the position.”
Considering the Cincinnati Bengals released Coles after one season because they thought he was done, these reports don’t make a great deal of sense.
And in David Clowney, the Jets certainly have a player who can handle the #3 receiver job until Holmes returns.
