Today’s Throwback Thursday is Laveranues Coles. With the Jets on tap this weekend, it seemed like a good time to reminisce about Coles’ time in Washington.
Coles only played for the Redskins for two seasons – 2003 and 2004. He put up good numbers too, 82 and 90 receptions, and 1264 and 1204 yards. Regardless, his time here seemed maligned and he headed back to the Jets in 2005 where he played four more seasons. He then played a season for the Bengals before heading back to the Jets ceremoniously before retiring. Hard to believe that it’s over a decade since he was in D.C.
It always seemed like he just came to get paid, but he did make the Pro Bowl in 2003.
The Redskins got Santana Moss back from the Jets when they swapped Coles back, so everything worked out well for both sides.
