The collection of Eric Mangini, Chad Pennington, Ben Graham and Laveranues Coles appeared on Sesame Street in December of 2006. After yesterday when the Jets released Coles, all of them are officially out of the Big Apple.
So why the releasing of Coles? Simply put, he's not worth 6 million dollars. He's a solid #2 receiver. He's been a solid tough as nails receiver his entire career, he's just never been a gamebreaker. Right now he essentially does the same things as Jerricho Cotchery, except he's older and was getting paid more. In the right role for the right money I think he could be a very solid edition to an NFL team. The Jets just need a game breaking wideout and not a #2 getting paid #1 money. I wish him well, I enjoyed his toughness, but it's time to move on. It's time to draft Jeremy Maclin (I hope).
