|A low point in Jets history? That is Ben Graham on the left, for the record.|
For the third time since 2000, the man with the hardest first name to spell in football will don a Green and White uniform.
Rich Cimini of ESPN New York reports the Jets' fifth all-time leading receiver will work out for team officials Friday in Florham Park, and is expected to sign a contract for the veteran's minimum before players report to training camp on Sunday. Coles' previous stints with the Jets occurred from 2000 to 2002 and 2005-2008.
With Santonio Holmes suspended for the first four games of the season, the Jets were looking for an insurance policy at wide receiver. Wisely, they opted for L.C. rather than T.O.
Last season in Cincinnati, Coles caught 43 balls for 514 yards and five touchdowns. He also caught the Bengals lone touchdown in their playoff loss to the Jets.
This will be the second straight season on Hard Knocks for the reticent Coles. I'm sure he's thrilled.
David Clowney, despite his great humanitarian work this offseason, is set to pack his bags, or at least captain the practice squad.
