Reports: Vikings agree to terms with former Eagles safety Coleman

The Minnesota Vikings have agreed to terms with former Philadelphia Eagles safety Kurt Coleman.

ESPN's Adam Shefter broke the report on Monday afternoon.

According to Pro Football Talk, the Eagles didn't have much use for Coleman. He had fallen to a reserve role after two years of playing as a regular.

According to Fox Sports Net, the Vikings and Coleman have agreed to a one-year contract. The Vikings offered Coleman a contract last week when he visited the team, but he left to weigh his options.

The 25-year-old Coleman was drafted by the Eagles in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL Draft, out of Ohio State.

He started 27 games over his first two seasons with the Eagles. The Star Tribune reports he intercepted four passes in 2011. Coleman recorded a career-high 93 tackles in 2012 – good for second on the team.

However, he was replaced as the starter when Philadelphia signed Patrick Chung last season, and played on just 73 defensive snaps in 2013.

ESPN reports that Coleman would likely come in as a special-teams contributor and a backup at both safety positions. He could compete with Jamarca Sanford and Andrew Sendejo for playing time, opposite of Harrison Smith.
