Cardinals sign Derrick Coleman

Derrick Coleman has found a new NFL home in Arizona.

Coleman has agreed to a one-year contract with the Cardinals, according to multiple reports.

New Cardinals offensive coordinator Mike McCoy hasn’t always had a place for fullbacks on his roster, so Coleman’s playing time on offense may be limited. Last year McCoy was the offensive coordinator in Denver, and the Broncos used fullbacks on about 15 percent of offensive snaps. Coleman will likely need to show he can contribute on special teams to make the roster.

Coleman spent last year with the Falcons after previously spending four seasons with the Seahawks. He entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie in Minnesota, but he never made the Vikings’ regular-season roster.

  1. The Cardinals running game is going to be one of the best in the NFL with the upgrades made along the offensive line including getting everyone back healthy up front, along with the addition of a good lead blocker in Derrick Coleman but more importantly Arizona has a loaded backfield led by one of the best if not thee best RB in the NFL in Elite All-Pro RB/WR David Johnson, back fully healthy with quality depth loaded behind him with some very good backs in rookie dual threat RB/WR Chase Edmonds who doubles as an excellent receiver/route runner as well and will play a big role in the offense along with 2nd year 3rd down scat back RB/WR TJ Logan possessing elite 4.35 40spd and also doubles as an excellent receiver with great hands dropping just 1 pass in 3 years in College. Arizona has a talented short yard power back as well in 6″2/235pd Rashaad Penny with a career 4.2 YPC AVG. The Cardinals backfield is loaded, which is important as Arizona will be running a run first offense this next season. David Johnson will be damn near unstoppable again in 2018.
