Coleman (undisclosed) was released by the Saints on Sunday with a failed physical designation, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Coleman opened up training camp on the PUP list, and while reported surfaced last week on Coleman being close to 100 percent, it's clear the veteran wide receiver just could never get right. Coleman still can be a quality wide receiver at just 26 year's old, so he likely won't have trouble finding a new home once he is medically cleared.
Coleman (undisclosed) is nearing a return to action, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Coleman landed on the Physically Unable to Perform list earlier this week but little has been revealed regarding the cause for his absence. Per the report, Coleman was spotted with a helmet in hand at Saturday's practice, which serves as a good sign moving forward. The 26-year-old figures to provide some added depth to the New Orleans receiving corps in 2018.
Since logging a veritable redshirt season in 2014 as an undrafted free agent, Coleman has been active for all 48 regular-season games in the meantime. However, he missed the Saints' divisional-round loss to the Vikings in January due to a neck injury. The exact nature of the current concern is unknown, but Coleman won't be on the practice field when training camp opens Thursday.
