Saints' Kurt Coleman: Lands in Big Easy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints signed Coleman on Monday, Joel A. Erickson of The Baton Rouge Advocate reports.

Coleman has progressed from a seventh-round selection of the Eagles in 2009 to a regular starting safety with three separate organizations. He spent the last three seasons with the Panthers, averaging 6.2 tackles per game while notching 11 interceptions (two for touchdowns) and two sacks in 42 contests. None of those picks and sacks happened in 2017, though, as he tended to a number of injuries. Cut loose at the end of February, Coleman will effectively replace unrestricted free agent Kenny Vaccaro, who earned the third-most defensive snaps (65.2 percent) among Saints safeties last year behind Marcus Williams (90.5) and Vonn Bell (74.2).

Kurt Coleman: Will be cut by Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers informed Coleman on Monday that he would be released, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Coleman, a starting safety for the Panthers, missed four regular-season contests in 2017 due to knee and ankle injuries, finishing the campaign with 76 total tackles (51 solo), three pass breakups and a fumble recovery. Though Coleman's performance amounted to a step back from the previous two seasons, Carolina's decision to cut him has more to do with clearing cap space than anything, as the 30-year-old carried a $5.25 million cap hit for 2018. Coleman should have no problem finding work elsewhere given the leadership and experience he's shown in the secondary during his nine-year NFL career.

Panthers' Kurt Coleman: Misses four games due to injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman finished with 76 tackles (51 solo) and one fumble recovery in 12 games played this season.

Coleman missed four games due to knee and ankle ailments, contributing toward a slight decline in overall production. Still, Coleman has enjoyed a resurgence in Carolina, as he's registered at least 75 tackles in all three seasons as a Panther. While he'll be disappointed by not intercepting a pass this year, especially after 11 over the previous two campaigns, the 29-year-old remains a valuable member of the team's defense.

Panthers' Kurt Coleman: Full practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman (ankle) practiced fully Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

In conjunction with the uncapped showing, Coleman said that he's "good to go" for Sunday's wild-card game in New Orleans, according to David Newton of ESPN.com. After sitting out the regular-season finale against Atlanta, Coleman's presence up the middle of the defense will be key to containing Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who posted 489 yards and four touchdowns in two regular-season matchups versus Carolina.

Panthers' Kurt Coleman: Expects to play against Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman (ankle) said Wednesday that he'll be good to go for Sunday's wild-card game against the Saints, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

Coleman missed the Panthers' regular-season finale against the Falcons due to a minor ankle injury, but the team's starting free safety is expected to be back at full strength by the time the weekend rolls around. He may be kept to limited participation in practice throughout the week as a precaution, but expect the Panthers to have Coleman on the field for a full slate of snaps Sunday.
