Coles, 31, was heading into the final year of his contract, but was looking for a long-term deal. Because of the compromise Wednesday between the sides, the Jets are off the hook for the guaranteed $6 million Coles was due this upcoming season.
Coles caught 70 passes for 850 yards and seven touchdowns in his second tour with the Jets. He was a third-round pick by New York in 2000 and played two seasons before signing as a free agent with Washington. After two years with the Redskins, Coles was traded to the Jets before the 2005 season.
