If the Bears aren't seriously considering making a play for recently released Jets WR Laveranues Coles, they should be.
Coles would become the team's best wide receiver the moment he set foot in Halas Hall. He has already caught 631 passes for 8,095 yards but doesn't seem to be slowing down much after nine seasons.
With Marty Booker already cut and Brandon Lloyd about to be an ex-Bear, Coles has more catches, receiving yards and touchdowns than the entire Bears roster combined, including tight ends and running backs.
Coles recently turned 31, but last season he caught 70 passes for 850 yards, even though the Jets inexplicably failed to utilize his deep speed, which is still way above average. He has missed some games in the past with concussions and is on the downside of his career, but as recently as 2006 the 5-foot-11, 193-pounder caught 91 passes for 1,098 yards.
