Report: Vikings hosting Kurt Coleman

An occasional starter in the Philadelphia secondary is taking a free agent visit to another NFC club.

Safety Kurt Coleman, who has started 29 games in four seasons with the Eagles, is meeting with the Vikings, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Wednesday night.

The 25-year-old Coleman was a regular in the Eagles’ defensive backfield in 2011 and 2012. He was a reserve last season, appearing in 15 games. He notched nine special teams tackles, per Eagles statistics, but he played just 50 defensive snaps, according to Pro Football Focus. In Minnesota, Coleman would likely compete for a backup safety spot and a role as a core special-teamer.

Coleman has also drawn interest from the Colts in free agency.

    He would be a solid pickup for any team that nabs him. He’s the kind of safety I like, he can really lay the wood.

    Wouldnt be a bad signing.
    Good depth piece to compete and possibly replace raymond or blanton.

    For those of your praising him…ask any Eagles fan for a true assessment of his abilities.

    They need to keep bringing in guys because Harrison Smith can’t stay healthy.

    He gives 110%. But, he’s not a good tackler and is even worse in coverage.

    I’d rather they look at another CB or LB.

    He actually is a good tackler but everyone just remembers the play he didn’t take Cruz down. Good special team guy. Noy good in coverage though.

    If he was only 3-4 inches taller he’d be a hell of a safety in the league.. he plays hard but leaves alot to be desired

    Remember a few years ago he was player of the week and had multiple interceptions in one game. Then as always the Eagles Brass F’d up by playing him out of position. This guy can tackle and cover. He had one notable missed tackle and now everyone says he can’t tackle. The guy can hit and cover. He’ll be a starter again. Trust.
