FLORHAM PARK, NJ - Laveranues Coles failed to make the Jets' roster out of training camp, but the veteran wide receiver is back in New York after signing an undisclosed contract with the club on Sunday.

The Jets signed Coles as a free agent in July but released him on August 29, their final cut before the regular season.

He spent the 2009 campaign with the Cincinnati Bengals, catching 43 balls for 514 yards and five touchdowns in 16 games. Prior to that, he suited up for the Jets between 2005-09, scoring 24 TDs in 60 contests.

The Jacksonville native and Florida State product was the Jets' third-round selection in the 2000 draft and spent his first three seasons there. During his first stint, Coles set a career high with 1,264 receiving yards in 2002.

Over seven years with New York, Coles has racked up 459 receptions for 5,941 yards and 37 scores. For his 10-year NFL tenure, he has collected 674 receptions for 8,609 yards and 49 touchdowns.

He turns 33 later this month.
