Should the Jets Sign Laveranues Coles?

With Jerricho Cotchery's groin injury keeping him out of the lineup the next few weeks, does anybody think it might be a good idea to give Laveranues Coles a ring? Since we are past the first week of the season, the Jets would only be on the hook for his salary at the veteran's minimum as long as he is on the roster. The team could release him once Cotchery returns.

I have stated my concern over Brad Smith losing practice reps in other spots while serving as a third receiver. There's more, though. Smith is not a great option at receiver. While he has developed into a terrific weapon, his route running and hands prevented him from developing into the quality receiver the team initially wanted him to become.

Coles would probably be an upgrade out of the slot. He's a good route runner and already knows the system. If Hard Knocks was any indications, the coaches like him.  Coles seems like he would be a decent stopgap to me. What do you think?
