Bengals and WR Laveranues Coles Nearing a Deal?

The Bengals official website is reporting that the team is interested in a meeting with former Jets WR Laveranues Coles, and has hopes of inking him to a deal. Here is the tidbit from the site:

As the Bengals offense begins a massive transformation that head coach Marvin Lewis hopes continues with the signing of veteran wide receiver Laveranues Coles, running back Cedric Benson officially began his reincarnation as one of the team leaders. All signs were pointing to a deal with Coles getting closer and closer, a move that would bring quarterback Carson Palmer two receivers with more than 600 career catches. Asked about filling the void of wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Lewis said they addressed it last year “in the draft” with Jerome Simpson and Andre Caldwell, and, in an apparent allusion to Coles, he indicated other moves are on the way.
