Safety Kurt Coleman Visiting Jets

Evan Habeeb-US PRESSWIRE

We don't have a convincing backfield, but the Jets are certainly bargain hunting

So I'm sure a few people will be angry when they read that Jackson's contract was worth $24 million over three years with just $16 guaranteed. Personally I think that's a great deal for a player with his kind of talent. The Jets must not have felt comfortable with him as a player and person, otherwise I can't see why we wouldn't get involved.

However lost in the Jacoby Ford and Dimitri Patterson signings yesterday was news that we are currently hosting a safety in Kurt Coleman. Coleman is a 7th round free safety who has played in Philadelphia for the last 4 years, two of which he was the starting safety.

His best year came in 2011 where he recorded 78 tackles, 4 interceptions and 5 pass defensed as well as one forced fumble. He lost his place last year but still appeared in 15 games for the Eagles. I'll be honest and say I don't know a great deal about him, but PFF had him rated as the 60th best safety in 2011 and 85th best in 2012. So I wouldn't get too excited about this one.
