Laveranues Coles is winding down his career in the NFL, having been reduced to a third string receiver on the NY Jets. But one thing that Coles does not have to worry about after his playing career ends is financial security, thanks to Redskins owner Dan Snyder. Coles was recently questioned about whether he had any feelings towards the organization in anticipation of their preseason tilt:â†µ
"I'm very thankful to (owner) Daniel Snyder to building my home down in Jacksonville," said Coles, referring to his 25,000-square foot mansion. "That's about it."â†µ
Well, ouch. Yet another former Redskin with fond memories about the organization. Of course, Coles did play one season under Steve Spurrier, so his disdain can be appreciated. However, he also openly whined about Joe Gibb's offense, and anyone who takes a shot at Saint Joe needs to leave the DMV immediately.â†µ
Coles did have two fairly productive with the Redskins, though his total yardage obscures the fact that he rarely caught the ball in the end zone. In that, he could be considered a "typical" Redskins wide receiver.
