FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – The New York Jets have released wide receiver Laveranues Coles a few days after re-signing him and added safety Emanuel Cook to the roster.
Coles was signed Sunday to provide a spark before New York's game at New England on Monday night. Coach Rex Ryan said Tuesday the team would have to release Coles, who was inactive, to add depth to its thin safety position.
After Jim Leonhard was lost for the season with a broken shin last week and James Ihedigbo suffered a sprained ankle, the Jets had only two healthy safeties. Cook was with the team in training camp as an undrafted free agent.
The Jets also released tackle Andre Ramsey from the practice squad and added linebacker Brashton Satele and cornerback Isaiah Trufant.
