Report: Jets, Coles close to new agreement

The Jets and Laveranues Coles are reportedly close to reaching a deal that would convince Coles to report to the club's offseason program.

A source told the Newark Star-Ledger that the deal is "win-win for both sides." Coles skipped the first day of the program on Monday. It appears the Jets are caving to Coles one year after refusing to do so for G Pete Kendall. Mar. 18 - 8:58 am et


Wow...I honestly didn't see this coming at all. Figured this would end up like the Pete Kendell situation last year. Coles always gives everything he has on the field and I'm glad it looks like he is going to stay around!

COLES SHOWS UP TO WORKOUTS

Jets wide receiver Laveranues Coles has made no secret that he would like a new deal with the team.

In a sign that he’s likely to get one, Coles showed up to the Jets’ voluntary off-season training program on Monday. The Star-Ledger reports that the deal he’ll make with the team won’t necessarily be a new contract this year, but it may be an assurance that he’ll get a new contract next year if he stays healthy, or that the team will let him seek a trade.

Last year the Jets had a veteran who was similarly unhappy with his contract. In that case, they ultimately traded the veteran, guard Pete Kendall, and their offensive line struggled without him all season. The Jets may have decided to be more flexible in their dealings with Coles than they were with Kendall, as they learned last season that a team can continue to pay the price for an unhappy veteran even after he’s gone.

Defensive tackle Dewayne Robertson still hasn’t reported for off-season conditioning, and it’s still not clear whether he’ll be traded or released, although it is clear that he won’t stay with the Jets unless he agrees to a pay cut.


Personally it seems like the Jets did the right thing with Coles and guranteed all the money left on the remaining two years of his deal. They would be crazy to give him a new long term deal following last season when he had an ankle injury and concussion problems.

I agree 100%. I like that they learned from their mistake with Kendall. And I like that they're still playing it safe and not signing Coles to a long term deal...when they don't have to! That's one thing that I noticed since Mangini got hired & Tannenbaum got promoted. Overall, the organization is running better as a whole IMO. ;-D
