Dolphins' Justin Coleman: Lands in Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Lions' Justin Coleman: Back in against Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman (knee) has returned to Sunday's matchup against Washington, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Detroit's defense stifled Washington through most of the first three quarters Sunday, holding Alex Smith without a touchdown, and Washington to just three total points. That is, until Washington broke through with its first touchdown of the day -- a two-yard J.D. McKissic TD plunge -- with 2:30 to go in the third quarter. Coleman's return to action is one more factor playing in the Lions' favor, as he will now plug back into his rotational role in the secondary with Detroit vying for its fourth win of 2020.

Lions' Justin Coleman: Picks up knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman is questionable to return to Sunday's game against Washington with a knee injury.

Coleman had three tackles during the first half before leaving with the injury. Jeff Okudah and Amani Oruwariye could see increased snaps while he's sidelined.

Lions' Justin Coleman: Ready to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions activated Coleman (hamstring) from injured reserve Saturday.

Coleman hasn't played since suffering a hamstring injury in the season opener, but after two weeks of practice without a setback, he'll return to the lineup. He's expected to start Sunday's game against the Colts and should operate as the No. 1 corner with Desmond Trufant (hamstring) and Darryl Roberts (groin) ruled out.

Lions' Justin Coleman: Finally back to work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman (hamstring) returned to practice Thursday.

Coleman has resided on injured reserve since suffering the hamstring issue in Week 1, and he'll now have a chance to return beginning Week 7. Whenever the Tennessee product is ready and activated by the Lions, he'll likely contribute as a depth or slot cornerback as long as he stays healthy.

Lions' Justin Coleman: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman (hamstring) is not present at Wednesday's practice, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Coleman has been on injured reserve since suffering a hamstring injury during Detroit's season opener, and it doesn't look as though he'll be ready to return Week 6. When healthy, Coleman stands to contribute as a slot cornerback for the Lions.

Lions' Justin Coleman: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Coleman sustained this injury during Week 1's loss to the Bears. A player placed on IR this season can miss as few as three weeks, but because the Lions have a Week 5 bye, Coleman won't play again until Week 6, at the earliest. The Lions secondary looked highly questionable with Coleman, Jeff Okudah (hamstring) and Desmond Trufant (hamstring) on the sidelines. Okudah and Trufant haven't been ruled out for Week 2, but nevertheless, both Amani Oruwariye and Darryl Roberts should have decent roles against the Packers.

Lions' Justin Coleman: Headed to locker room
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman suffered a hamstring injury in the team's Week 1 contest against the Bears, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Coleman appeared to suffer a hamstring injury. He was able to walk off the field but immediately went to the locker room to be evaluated. It's unclear whether he will be able to return to the game. If he remains absent, the Lions will be thin in the secondary as rookie cornerback Jeff Okudah (hamstring) is inactive.

Lions' Justin Coleman: Cleared for action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman has been activated from the Lions' reserve/COVID-19 list, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Coleman is thus slated to reprise his slot corner duties for the Lions this coming season. The 27-year-old recorded 51 tackles and a pick in his first campaign with the team in 2019.

Lions' Justin Coleman: Placed on COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman will be placed on the Lions' reserve/COVID-19 list, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Per the report, Coleman is asymptomatic and tested negative Tuesday before testing positive Wednesday. The 27-year-old is slated to reprise his slot corner duties in 2020, after logging 51 tackles and a pick in his first campaign with the Lions last year.

Lions' Justin Coleman: Not living up to contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman registered 54 tackles, 13 pass breakups, one interception, three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery over 16 games in 2019.

Signed to a hefty four-year, $36 million contract in the offseason, Coleman played very well over the first few weeks of the season. However, he seemingly ended the year as a liability in pass coverage, and Coleman ultimately ranked among the league's most generous cornerbacks in terms of yardage allowed during the final three-fourths of the year. Since the dead money on Coleman's contract makes it highly unlikely he'll be going anywhere this offseason, the 26-year-old slot man will probably get a chance to redeem himself in 2020, but a return to his early-2019 form is no guarantee.

Lions' Justin Coleman: No-fly zone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman had five tackles, an interception and finished with a team-high three passes defended in Monday's loss to the Packers.

In a losing effort, Coleman was able to secure his first interception of 2019 after signing a four-year contract with the Lions back in March. Playing the nickel cornerback in Detroit, Coleman periodically comes off the field, which cuts into his value in IDP formats. Through five games, he has collected 16 tackles and defended nine passes.

Lions' Justin Coleman: Lands four-year deal in Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Seahawks' Justin Coleman: Respectable 2018 campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Seahawks' Justin Coleman: Seals win with defensive TD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman had one solo tackle and recovered a fumble for a touchdown in Monday's 21-7 win over the Vikings.

Coleman scooped up Kirk Cousins' fumble late in the fourth quarter and returned it 29 yards for the touchdown to put the finishing touches on Monday's victory. The 25-year-old has been busy the last two weeks, as he totaled 10 tackles and a half-sack last week against the 49ers. Coleman should remain in his role as nickelback as the Seahawks face the 49ers again in Week 15.

Seahawks' Justin Coleman: Defensive outburst in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Seahawks' Justin Coleman: Signs tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Seahawks' Justin Coleman: Given second-round tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman received a second-round tender Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Coleman was set to become a free agent come Wednesday, but now teams will be required to give up a second-round pick to obtain the 24-year-old cornerback. He spent two seasons with New England before coming to Seattle in 2017. Coleman finished last year with 43 tackles, 1.5 sacks and two interceptions.
