Default Bungals sign Wide Out

A day after losing wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh, the Cincinnati Bengals replaced him by reaching an agreement in principle with former New York Jets wide receiver Laveranues Coles.

NFL.com Video

Jets WR Laveranues Coles re-adjusts to a pass for a go-ahead TD catch vs. the Chiefs.
Coles agreed in principle to a four-year, $28 million deal, according to a source. Both sides still have to work on the language of the contract and the guarantees, but the money figures were acceptable to Coles.



For Coles, it was a victory. He turned down a $6 million guaranteed salary from the Jets. To obtain his freedom, Coles voided the final year of his Jets contract and became a free agent.



The Buffalo Bills were his first visit, but talks with the Bengals heated up over the weekend with the possibility of Houshmandzadeh leaving for the Seattle Seahawks. Coles visited the Bengals earlier this week but left without a contract.



The 31-year-old Colts caught 631 passes during his nine-year career with the Jets. He had 8,095 yards and 44 touchdown receptions during his career in New York.

I think everyone involved in this deal could've done better in some respect.

Ahh well, that's the Bengals for you.

I would have welcomed Coles as Nate's replacement.

But not for that price.
