Roster News: Emanuel Cook Signed, Laveranues Coles Released

You saw it in Flight Connections, but the Jets signed safety Emanuel Cook today and again released Laveranues Coles.

The 5-foot-10, 224-pound former South Carolina standout played for the Hartford Colonials this season.

He has previous stints with the Jets and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Cook signed with the Jets after going undrafted last year.

Two years ago, Cook recorded 97 tackles and one interception for the Gamecocks. He was a second-team All-Southeastern Conference selection three years ago when he led the team with 92 tackles and intercepted four passes and recorded four sacks.

They had to make a move to add a safety for depth with Jim Leonhard done and James Ihedigbo hurt. Part of me wishes the team kept Coles' locker room presence instead of a guy with limited upside like Patrick Turner? I also think I'd want Coles on the field in an emergency situation.

Am I just being sentimental?
