Coles will receive guarantees totaling $8 million, bringing his two-year earnings from the team to a whopping $21 million in guaranteed money. ------------------------ I'm not quite sure what this means. Who is paying the bonus...the Jets or the Redskins? Better be the Skins. I summon thee Flowtrain. It sounds like based on this article the Jets gave coles 8 million upfront (8+13=21). That doesn't mean it was a bad move though. The Jets could be pushing money to the back of the contract in order to make one more big move.
