Busy Bengals

The Bengals have quickly filled the void left by the departure of T.J. Houshmandzadeh with another veteran receiver, Laveranues Coles. The NFL Network’s Adam Schefter is reporting a 4-year deal worth $28 million. There is no word how much of the contract is guaranteed. Depending how much is guaranteed, back loaded, etc., this could turn out to be a nice deal. Maybe this will allow the Bengals to do something that should have happened years ago, cut ties with Chad Ocho Cinco. Coles is know for toughness on the the field. The only hint of negativity is that he can sometimes be moody with the media. But who cares about that? It's doing what the coaches ask that's important to winning football games, not getting along with the likes of George Vogel or any other media scum. (I think I'm joking about the scum part) Coles has spent 9 years in the N.F.L., 7 with the New York Jets. Last year Coles caught 70 passes for the Jets including 7 touchdowns.

Here is a link to Coles’ NFL profile:
