"Kurt gives us a versatile safety who can play both spots," head coach Ron Rivera said. "He's athletic, he's intelligent and will understand the system, having worked with Sean (McDermott) before. He's a very consistent player and also adds special teams ability. That is something we've talked about improving upon, and we've made some moves this offseason looking for guys that can help us on special teams."
Coleman believes he deserves a shot at cracking the starting lineup with his new team after making just three starts in 15 games played in his one season with the Chiefs.
"Whatever role they want me to play I am willing to do," Coleman said. "But I think I have worked my way to be a starter. I know I can play as a starter and be very productive."
Coleman recorded 37 tackles, three interceptions and six passes defensed in 2014.
"I want to let everyone know I'm there, and I'm not there to play around," Coleman said to the Kansas City Star. "Obviously, you can’t always take that shot; you have to be a smart player. But I’ll say this; I never go out there to hurt anybody, but I try to hit as hard as I can."
