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 in 2019, and reunite him with former high school teammate Darius Slay.
Coleman made 55 tackles, 0.5 sacks, 10 pass breakups and one interception in the 2018 season.
Coleman was given plenty of responsibility, as he played 40 or more snaps in 12 of 16 games and logged 45 in the playoff loss to Dallas. He rewarded the coaching staff for that decision in Week 14 against the Vikings when he scooped up a fumble and ran it back for a touchdown to cinch an important win. This was Coleman's second year in Seattle, and he'll become an unrestricted free agent in March.
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.
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.
