They definitely needed WR help since Whozeyourmama went to Seattle. Still, it won't get them over .500.

It's a hot night. The mind races. You think about your knife; the only friend who hasn't betrayed you, the only friend who won't be dead by sun up. Sleep tight, mates, in your quilted Chambray nightshirts.

This move rivals some of the recent Steeler ones as head scratchers.

Coles = 4YR/28MILLION/????BONUS (likely around 8-10BONUS considering he turned down 6BONUS to stay in NY)
Houshmandzadeh = 5YR/40MILLION/15BONUS

So, an average of 7 for LABURNEOUS or 8 for HOOSHGRANADA?

Not for nuthin', as much as I dislike the latter, if you're gonna pay the former that much, Ida kept the known commodity.

Coles always struck me as a pretty good teammate and a guy who fought over the middle.  Too much money, but not a bad guy IMO.

He definately has a history and I wouldn't want him on my team, but that's Cincinnati for you.  Then they wonder why. :rolleyes:

Eitherway, it's good to see that Ryan Clark has a new WR to decapitate in the AFC North.
