Coleman signed a four-year contract worth up to $36 million with the Lions on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Coleman's deal makes him the highest-paid nickel cornerback in the league, though the exact terms remain unclear. The 25-year-old posted a career-high 55 tackles across 16 games with the Seahawks in 2018, in addition to 0.5 sacks, 10 pass breakups and one interception. He also logged 45 defensive snaps during the team's playoff loss to Dallas. Coleman's presence will bring a much-needed boost to the Lions' secondary and reunite him with former high school teammate Darius Slay.
Coleman registered 55 tackles, 0.5 sacks, 10 pass breakups and one interception across 16 games in 2018. Coleman was given plenty of responsibility, as he played 40 or more snaps in 12 of his outings and logged 45 in the playoff loss to Dallas. His crowning moment came in Week 14 against the Vikings, when he scooped up a fumble and ran it back for a touchdown to clinch an important win. Coleman will become an unrestricted free agent in March.
Coleman had 10 tackles (eight solo) and a half-sack in Sunday's 43-16 win over the 49ers. Coleman's set a new career high with Sunday's production, as he previously hadn't exceeded seven tackles through 47 games. The 25-year-old should continue to serve as the Seahawks' nickelback heading into next Monday's game against the Vikings.
Coleman signed his second-round tender Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Coleman will remain in Seattle in 2018 after recording 43 tackles, 1.5 sacks and two interceptions last season. The 25-year-old could see an even larger role in the Seattle defense during the upcoming campaign in light of the departure of Richard Sherman.
Coleman (chest) didn't appear on the Seahawks' injury report Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Coleman exited Sunday's loss to the Rams with a minor chest injury. The cornerback's absence from the report suggest's he's in no danger of missing the Week 16 matchup with the Cowboys.
