  • Seahawks' Justin Coleman: Handling nickel corner duties

    Coleman lined up as the nickel corner with the starting defense at Monday's practice, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

    Coleman averaged just 22 snaps per game with the Dolphins last season, but he'll take on a more significant role if he can hold off the competition for the starting nickel corner role. Ugo Amadi -- who has been filling in for Quandre Diggs (ankle/rest) at free safety during training camp -- will be his main competition for the gig.

  • Seahawks' Justin Coleman: Reunites with Seahawks

    Seattle signed Coleman to a one-year deal Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Coleman returns to Seattle, where he played during the 2017 and 2018 seasons. Though his performance has dipped over the past two seasons, the veteran should have a chance to claim a starting cornerback job for the Seahawks in 2022.

  • Dolphins' Justin Coleman: Removed from COVID-19 list

    Coleman (undisclosed) was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    Coleman missed Miami's Week 16 win over the Saints, but he is expected to return against the Titans in Week 17. Before his absence, the 28-year-old cornerback had played at least 20 defensive snaps in five straight contests, and he is expected to see a similar workload Sunday.

  • Dolphins' Justin Coleman: Placed on COVID-19 list

    Coleman (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

    Coleman has played at least 20 defensive snaps in each of the last five contests, so his potential absence would leave a big opening in Miami's secondary. If he's unable to clear protocols before the Week 16 Monday night contest against the Saints, then Trill Williams and Nik Needham would both be options for increased snaps in the slot.

  • Dolphins' Justin Coleman: Lands in Miami

    Coleman agreed to terms Wednesday with the Dolphins on a one-year contract, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Coleman's deal is worth up to $2.75 million, with the contract likely including multiple incentives clauses based on the extent and quality of his play. He'll be a strong candidate to serve as the Dolphins' top slot corner.

  • Justin Coleman: Done in Detroit

    The Lions will release Coleman, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Coleman's release will free up roughly $4.7 million in cap space for the Lions next season, so the move doesn't come as much of a surprise. Despite missing five games due to injury last season and having struggled during his time in Detroit, the 27-year-old will likely be viewed as one of the top slot cornerbacks on the free agent market.

  • Lions' Justin Coleman: Posts 30 tackles

    Coleman recorded 30 tackles and one pass breakup over 11 games in 2020.

    There was hope that Coleman might recover his early 2019 form this year. While his 2020 performance wasn't terrible, it was ultimately another disappointing season for one of the highest-paid slot corners in the league, who had some struggles in both pass coverage and run defense. However, even though Detroit could save roughly $5 million against the cap by letting him go this offseason, it would also have to eat $6 million in dead money by doing so. Combined with the fact that it's entirely possible that Detroit's next defensive coordinator might know how to use the 27-year-old more effectively, it's possible Coleman could get another chance in Detroit.
