its been a big day in sports as you can see from the last few posts. free agent laveranues coles who spent the last 4 seasons on the jets has signed with the cincinnati bengals. the bengals and coles agreed to a 4 year deal worth $28 million. the bengals signed coles only days after t.j. houshmandzadeh signed with the seahawks. last season, for the jets, coles had 70 receptions for 850 yards with 7 touchdowns.
“i’m excited,” coles said. “i’m coming off a pretty good year, but I know I can do better. anytime you come into a situation with a quarterback like carson palmer, you’re going to think you can bump up those numbers a little more.”
i find this statement interesting considering he was catching passes from brett favre last season. although past his prime, favre is a legend. we’ll see if he can better his numbers with carson palmer throwing to him.
