Vikings agree to terms with former Eagles safety Coleman

Free agent safety Kurt Coleman agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings, according to multiple reports Monday.

Coleman started 27 games between 2011 and 2012 for the Philadelphia Eagles before losing his starting job last season. He played sparingly as a reserve in 2013, finishing with 14 tackles.

According to NFL.com, Coleman visited the Vikings on Thursday. Coleman had additional visits with the New York Jets and Indianapolis Colts before landing with Minnesota.

Coleman, 25, was drafted by the Eagles in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL draft. He had four interceptions in 2011 and made a career-high 93 tackles in 2012.
