Laveranues Coles: 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 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.

On nfl network (the day Coles was released) Adam said his agent assured him he could get a long term deal done with at least 6 million the first year. I guess Coles will be looking for a new agent soon.

I'm not surprised, he's a concussion prone, 31 year old POSSESSION WR. You can get a rookie a lot cheaper in the lower round to do the same thing.

Playing for the Bengals will be punishment at any price. The only positive is if Carson Palmer comes back from injury. The 0% chance of winning combined with Ocho Cinco would sap all the fight left in Coles.

I was telling my boss at work that Coles is crazy if he thinks he's getting one last LTC. He'd be lucky to get a backloaded 4yr/$18 million contract. No team is going to sign him to retire with them.

He's going to play journeyman like Keyshawn Johnson did, latch on to programs to find out he might be third or fourth on the depth chart -- only to bow out ungracefully in training camp.

He can find a one or two year deal. But he's sounding like he wants a 5yr contract worth $30+ million.

Isn't it satisfying when arrogant players or celebs over estimate their worth? Coles never should have opened his mouth about his contract. It's not that doing so is wrong, but that Coles never deserved what he thought he did.

Laveranues Coles' agent made a gamble when he passed up $6 million guaranteed from the Jets for 2009 to enter free agency. He might not be Coles' agent for long.

The Dolphins have made it known they are not interested in Coles. It speaks very badly for Coles' market value when the man who drafted him, Bill Parcells, decides to stay away despite a glaring receiver need. It also might indicate that the Miami triumvirate doesn't like seeing their name connected to players they aren't interested in.

Coles could be a fallback plan for the Bengals if the don't get T.J. Houshmandzadeh. If not, the Bills have no one to bid against. The Jets are "monitoring the situation," but they are longshots.

Perhaps Coles will get his $6 million back, but he's learning that the free agent market isn't always what you expect. Especially if you are over 30.

The best place for Coles is back with us - but not for $6m.

I think he could still come back

Despite the glaring need we'd have at WR, would we really want Coles back? For the past three years he's wanted new contracts. Thats too much of a distraction for the team. I'd rather us move on without him to allow for chemistry to build between whoever our QB will be & WR's that actually WANT to be here. I like Coles as a player. I even have his jersey, but I honestly could care less if he comes back or not. He's only another concussion away from being done; therefore not worth a multi-year contract.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

Out of the two teams reportedly showing interest, Coles should sign with the Bengals. He'll have a better QB throwing to him in Palmer and a lot more looks with defenses focusing on Ocho Cinco.

He was fine for team chemistry throughout training camps and the season during the last couple years. He was never anywhere near causing a Kendall-like situation, not even close.
