Brian Costello says the Jets might be looking at bringing back an old friend.

The Jets are considering bringing back cornerback Drew Coleman, who was released by the Jaguars on Thursday.

Alan Herman, Coleman’s agent, said the Jets are one of three teams to already express interest in Coleman, who spent his first five seasons with the Jets before signing with Jacksonville last year.

The Jets have not replaced Donald Strickland for the fourth corner spot. Few teams will find a starting caliber player for that. The best you can hope for is somebody capable of handling secondary targets and doing a decent job as the nickel if one of the top three corners go down. Drew can handle that. Bringing him back into the fold would make a lot of sense. It also would help the pass rush. Coleman might have been the best blitzing corner in the league in his first Jets stint.
