The Colts saw veteran safety Antoine Bethea sign with the 49ers earlier this offseason, leaving them with a hole next to LaRon Landry in their secondary.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that they’ll be meeting with a candidate for the job on Friday. Kurt Coleman is expected to visit with the team, a few days after he visited with the Jets.

Coleman was a seventh-round pick by the Eagles in 2010 and played in 59 games with the Eagles over the last four years. He started 29 of those games, but none in 2013 as the Eagles shuffled through a variety of safeties in hopes of finding solid play that never came. That provided a pretty clear idea about their interest in bringing him back even before they signed Malcolm Jenkins this offseason.

General Manager Ryan Grigson worked in Philly before going to Indy, so there’s familiarity with Coleman’s abilities. If Coleman does sign with the Colts, it’s a good bet that they’ll still look for help at the position in the draft as Coleman would be a stopgap option, at best, for a team with designs on a third straight trip to the postseason.

    This guy doesn’t suck due to a lack of effort. He sucks because he takes bad angles, and doesn’t have very good skills. As an Eagles fan, watching him and “A second too late” Nate Allen together made me want to punch a baby.

    Kurt always put forth 100% effort. However the ability just isn’t quite there.
    Good luck in your future Kurt!

    The pathetic colts will never win a title with that fraud as a quarterback. Luck is the biggest bust of this decade.

    Must hurt for Kurt to get bumped by his former teammate at tOSU.

    Isn’t he the guy that got blown up by Trent Richardson when he was with the Browns? That’ll be a happy reunion.

    Coleman will get a job somewhere, even if its mainly to play Special Teams. He gives 100% effort and can be a decent backup in an emergency.

    Isn’t this the same guy Trent Richardson ran over 2 years ago which caused the lowering of the helmet rule? I guess they can joke about it in the locker room now.

    Well, he did have 3 ints against the Redskins in one game….so there’s that.

    I’ll never forget him getting absolutely demolished by Trent Richardson in the first game of 2012 in Cleveland. No form whatsoever, just planted his feet squarely on the ground in front of Richardson and let him plow right through him like a truck.

    I honestly thought he would struggle to get a 2nd contract in the NFL. As many have said, he gives great effort. He’s just not built to be a starting safety in the NFL. I wish him well finding a spot and hanging on a few more years. he at least deserves that shot.
