He would be a solid #2. I don't think he would cost that much. He is 31 but he probably has at least 2 or 3 good years left. 70 catches last year proves he still has some left in the tank.

As long as it wasn't a long term deal, I'd be OK with signing Coles.

He was scheduled to make $6mm this year. So he won't be exactly cheap.

I'll take him, but only for like 2 years maximum. I think he could help Bowe out a bit.

He turned down 6 mil. He will want more? or is he just wanting out of N.Y?

Just wanting out I think. Look, he has no QB to speak of now. He knows the team probably wont be productive at QB much.

Sure, we have lots of money and no one to spend it on. 1-Year $4 million, take it or leave it.

Coles really isn't that old. A three-year, $10-12M deal would be perfect for all involved. We get an experienced WR with some speed, and Coles keeps a starting gig.

the Kansas City Chiefs (http://www.chiefscrowd.com/team/21/nfl) saved about $13.5 million in salary cap space with the release of CB Patrick Surtain (http://www.chiefscrowd.com/player/1017/nfl), LB Donnie Edwards (http://www.chiefscrowd.com/player/1632/nfl) and QB Damon Huard (http://www.chiefscrowd.com/player/1182/nfl).

Makes you wonder if they are setting up to draft a QB :yahoo:

No, it's just clearing out dead weight. Why would we keep Surtain, Edwards, Huard, or Merritt?

The Chiefs aren't drafting a QB at 3.

The money has to go somewhere. I think Housh and now Coles are two prospects through free agency we are actively looking at, if anything to retain TGs faith that we are going to be winners... sooner than most believe, IMO.

I wouldn't mind Coles on my team!! The guy is good!

Point is we have a lot of money to spend and there are some enticing FA's out there that would help us win.

Coles could be one of them....

I would take Coles. We need someone who can get the long ball. Coles adds that weapon we need. I think Bowe would still be the number one, but it would take a lot of pressure off him, if teams have to account for the deep threat.

I would rather have Housh myself. Has he not led in catches in the last 4 years, or was it no one has caught as many in the last 4? help me out crowd

no one has caught more than him in the last 4 years.

I'd rather have Housh, but he's going to be much more expensive.

Gotta spend that dough somewhere! With how small the big nameF/A class is now, I bet we're sitting as the lowest salary team in the league.

ē Wideout Laveranues Coles (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/5107/;_ylt=ApG.9nMFy2aU3bHjVddyu9vhMMQF): The fact that he still doesnít have a deal is troubling, considering Coles walked away from a guaranteed $6 million payday with the Jets in 2009. When he left that money on the table, the natural assumption was that something fishy was going on and that Coles already had another lucrative landing zone in place. But now that he hasnít gotten a new deal, it just looks like Coles was betting he could land a whopper of a deal in free agency. But the wide receiver market has been ultra-weak, to the point that Cincinnatiís T.J. Houshmandzadeh (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/5652/;_ylt=AiHqYw9T5NClnpzYZY5Tb9XhMMQF) may have to return to Cincinnati to get a solid payday. Like Ray Lewis, itís looking like the 31-year-old Coles may have grossly overestimated his worth.
