Laveranues Coles

Pro Bowl Wide Receiver

Laveranues Coles is a former NFL wide receiver who played 11 seasons (2000-2010). Coles spent seven years with the New York Jets, and also played for Washington and Cincinnati. He made the Pro Bowl in 2003.

In his second stint with the Jets in 2006, Coles received the Curtis Martin MVP Award given to the annual Most Valuable Player for the Jets.

Coles was drafted by the Jets in the third round in 2000 after playing his college football at Florida State for Hall of Fame Coach Bobby Bowden. Coles really broke out with the Jets during the 2002 NFL season in which he made 89 receptions for 1,264 receiving yards, and five touchdowns.  That breakout season landed him a nice deal in Washington, where he had another spectacular season in 2003. Coles made the Pro Bowl after another 1,200-plus yards receiving  season, catching 82 passes – the most by a Washington player since Art Monk in 1989. 

He finished his NFL career with 674 receptions, 8,609 yards, and 49 TDs.

Coles grew up in Jacksonville, Florida, where he was a star three-sport athlete at Ribault High School. He played football, basketball, and ran track. Coles rushed for nearly 5,000 yards at Ribault High, and in basketball was a member of the state championship team. 

Coles has been a frequent contributor to The 33rd Team.
