Safety Kurt Coleman agrees to terms with Vikings

Kurt Coleman

The Minnesota Vikings and free-agent safey Kurt Coleman have agreed to terms on a contract, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Coleman visited Minnesota Wednesday and Thursday but left the team facility without signing a contract.

Coleman thanked the Eagles on his Instagram Monday.

Coleman, a former seventh-round pick, started 27 games between 2011 and 2012 for the Philadelphia Eagles, but lost his starting job last season.

Coleman has seven interceptions, 11 passes defensed and two forced fumbles in four seasons in the league.

He will likely be used on special teams and backup both safety spots, competing with Jamarca Sanford and Andrew Sendejo for playing time.
