Saints Agree To Terms With Safety Kurt Coleman

The Saints waste little time in finding a new safety to bolster the secondary.

NFL: New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

In surprising news at this late hour on Friday night, the New Orleans Saints have reportedly come to terms on a three year deal for former Carolina Panthers Safety, Kurt Coleman to join the team in 2018. Here is the report from one of New Orleans’ most reliable sources, The Advocate’s Nick Underhill:

That report has also been tweeted by other NOLA sources, but Underhill had the initial report. The addition of Coleman likely cements the end of Kenny Vaccaro’s time in a Saints uniform. The Saints’ interest in Coleman has been reported upon here, and although the timing may be a bit of a surprise, the Saints’ pursuit of Coleman really isn't much of a surprise at all.

The 29 year-old safety (30 in July) out of Ohio State will enter his 9th NFL season this fall, having spent his past three seasons with the Saints’ rivals in Carolina. This may not be a “splash” signing, but may ultimately be a solid one, if Coleman provides the stability and leadership needed to go along with the outstanding young talent in the secondary.

As more news on Kurt Coleman’s signing with the Saints unfolds, we’ll bring it all to you.
