Coleman agreed Wednesday with the Jets on a one-year contract worth up to $2 million, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Coleman will reunite in New York with head coach Robert Saleh and offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur, both of whom are familiar with his skill set from their overlapping tenures in San Francisco. The 27-year-old is coming off a disastrous 2020 campaign, during which a knee injury forced him to miss eight games and he was limited to just 53 rushing yards on 28 attempts (1.9 yards per carry). Coleman's history of reliability prior to 2020 could be enough to keep him ahead of Ty Johnson and La'Mical Perine on the Jets' depth chart, but New York could be eyeing a running back with an early selection in April's draft.
