Jets release Laveranues Coles; could Dolphins pursue?

New, comments

The Jets have decided to cut WR Laveranues Coles today, according to the Newark Star Ledger. Of course, that instantly begs the question - could Coles possibly land in Miami and reunite with his good friend Chad Pennington?

It's very possible. The Sun-Sentinel belives the Dolphins might look into acquiring a veteran wide receiver who could mentor their younger receivers like Ted Ginn, Davone Bess, and Brandon London. And we all know that Coles and Pennington are very, very close friends and would love to reunite in Miami.

At 31 years old, Coles still has plenty left in his tank. His 70 catch, 850 yard, 7 touchdown season trumps any season by any Dolphins receiver last year. And he's a Florida native who spent his college years at Florida State. A return to the sunshine state could be exactly what he's looking for.

The problem, though, lies in what Coles is seeking financially. I doubt the trifecta would spend a large amount of money on a position they regard as a luxury more so than a need.

But the thought is certainly enticing. Would you want Coles to sign with the Dolphins?
