Coles demands destroy deal

Coming back to the Jets wasn't enough to satisfy wideout Laveranues Coles.<p>

He also wants more money.

And due to this demand, the proposed trade that would send Coles from the Washington Redskins to the Jets, is off.

According to ESPN's Len Pasquerelli, Coles representatives apprised the Jets that the wideout would want his contract upgraded if he came back to New York.

The Jets have no interest in doing this. They are only interested in acquiring Coles under his current deal, a seven-year, $35 million deal, including a $13 million bonus.

Coles' agents told the Jets that the wideout might not report to training camp unless he gets a new deal.

This scenario turned off the Jets, and they told the Redskins they were no longer pursuing the deal.

The proposed trade would have sent Coles to the Jets for wide receiver Santana Moss.
