Kurt Coleman: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Coleman will reunite with his former defensive coordinator, Sean McDermott, who coached him as a rookie in 2010. Forced into action for some games last season after Eric Berry was lost to health issues, Coleman played well in the role, recording three picks and a forced fumble, while adding 37 tackles (34 total). Coleman could compete for a starting spot alongside Roman Harper, but should also be a big contributor on special teams.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Reunited with Panthers' defensive coordinator Sean McDermott, Coleman registered 37 tackles and three interceptions for the Chiefs last season, when his role expanded in wake of teammate Eric Berry's absence. Now in Carolina, Coleman is expected to back-up Tre Boston at starting free safety, but should see a decent amount of snaps weekly and make significant special teams contributions.
A starter for most of 2011 and 2012, Coleman is suddenly buried on the Philadelphia depth chart and could have his roster spot in danger.
He'll need to hold off Oshiomogho Atogwe and Jaiquawn Jarrett, but it generally appears that Coleman should enter 2012 as Philadelphia's starter opposite Nate Allen. He tends to give up too many plays, but Coleman has sneaky IDP value if he's on the field, as he finished 2011 with 78 tackles (56 solo) and four interceptions despite starting just 13 games.
Competing with Jaiquawn Jarrett for the starting strong safety spot.
Coleman is a defensive back who may struggle to make the team in 2010.
