New Coles deal gets a major endorsement

The Jets have given Laveranues Coles a new contract, and Mark Cannizzaro of the New York Post thinks it was the right thing to do.

"The Jets, after spending some $140 million in free agent contracts this offseason on players who have never worn their uniform, yesterday took care of one of their most respected, hardest-working players," wrote Cannizzaro in Friday's Post.

"Laveranues Coles, who entered this offseason with two remaining years on his contract worth $11 million but wanted an extension to ensure he'd finish his career as a Jet, yesterday agreed to that extension.

"Coles and Jerricho Cotchery, who was awarded a new contract before last season, are the lifeblood of the Jets receiving corps and the Jets could not afford to break that up."

The Jets finished 4-12 last season.
