Jets add WR Matt Cole from waivers


Recommended Posts

Ex-49er, UDFA last year. Played on STs late in the year for San Fran. Probably brought in because our OC is familiar with him.

Two Coles now?  ALL THE COLES!!!  Are we resigning Lavernandshirlius Coles too?

JD seems to like sowing confusion with same-named players, lol.

"You cover Coles, no YOU cover that other Coles, aaaaaahhhh too many Coles!!!"

Probably smart kid for the room who can help teach route concepts. Not a bad signing in with the restricted offseason. Looks to be a smaller guy. Elijah Moore's roommate in camp

Underrated: McKendree WR, Matt Cole

I know, you are probably asking yourself who in the world is Matt Cole?

Cole is from the small college of McKendree University in Lebanon, Illinois, where only 4,500 live. However, he has garnered significant NFL attention due to his dynamic skill-set. At Northwestern’s Pro Day, Cole ran a 4.48 40 yard dash with a 37 1/2 inch vertical jump to boot. He was on the radar of NFL scouts beforehand, but now he has made himself a name.

His main calling card is electricity after the catch. On tape, Cole housed catches on mesh plays and screens with ease due to his suddenness and quickness. As a route runner, Cole is subtle and efficient. In the NFL, expect Cole to be a slot receiver who can be dangerous after the catch. With return ability and 18 special teams tackles as a junior, Cole has a legitimate chance to make a roster.

I looked him up.  Came from a teeny tiny school and made a name for himself at Northwestern's pro day.  The Dolphins signed him right after the draft, then put him on the practice squad when the season started.  SF signed him off the Dolphins practice squad.  They waived him yesterday, presumably to make room from some UDFA.  Seems like an ST cover guy.

He has ST value and is familiar with the 49er playbook.  He could compete as a depth piece for the slot.    

Obviously worthwhile to LaFleur to have at least for whatever OTA's and TC.

Reading his profile, he sounds like a great special teams player.

Just the type of guy you want as your 6th WR - versatile and with a special teams pedigree.

He's got a shot.

No but Laveranues Coles announced the Elijah Moore pick on day 2 of the draft.

Some good Matt Cole info and a video here:

Record setting WR at a small school, return guy, great special teamer who covers kicks and makes tackles.

Custom made for a 6th WR spot with his versatility and ST ability. Good luck to him.

Can you say dream team???

Yes. So listen, I just said it and nothing happened. Well, my dog yawned. Nervously. I probably shouldn't say it again, especially three times in front of a mirror.
