Cornerback Justin Coleman is headed to Miami.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that Coleman has agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Dolphins. Coleman’s pact is worth up to $2.75 million.

He joins quarterback Jacoby Brissett, running back Malcolm Brown, punter Michael Palardy, and tight end Cethan Carter as new additions in Miami.

Coleman was released by the Lions this month. He had 84 tackles, an interception, three forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery in 27 games for Detroit over the last two years.

Coleman began his NFL career with the Patriots and played for a former New England assistant in Matt Patricia while with the Lions. He’ll reunite with another former Patriots assistant in Miami head coach Brian Flores.

  1. I trust the head office of the Dolphins, but I admit that this one is a bit of a head scratcher. Another corner? We have the highest priced secondary in the NFL and we get another corner? It’s not like we have all the cap space in he world to play with. You’d think they’d want to use it on an OL guy, a wide out, or a running back before you get another guy from a position that is NOT a need.

  2. Miami is taking a step back and seem to be trying to get Deshaun Watson. If that falls through Miami will be lucky to win 5 games. We may not have a quarterback and on defense don’t have the ability to take one down from the edge.That’s literally not being able to keep the ball and not being able to get it back.
