CB - MIA
Per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Dolphins have signed CB Justin Coleman to a one-year, $2.75M deal.
The Dolphins have added depth to their secondary with the signing of Coleman on a one-year, $2.75M deal. Coleman, 27-years old, was released by the Lions earlier in the month. In the span of two years with Detriot he had 84 tackles, three forced fumbles, and an interception.
Detroit Lions CB Justin Coleman is expected to be released in the coming days, as reported by NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
Coleman spent two seasons as a slot cornerback in Detroit, recording 30 tackles and a pass deflection on one of the worst defensive units in 2020. The sixth-year cornerback will head to free agency searching for a team in need of a nickel corner. The Lions paid Coleman heavily for his services but he may need to temper expectations in free agency in order to land a starting role on a team with postseason potential.
The Detroit Lions are placing CB Justin Coleman on injured reserve after suffering a hamstring strain Sunday.
Coleman, who joined the Lions as an unrestricted free agent last season, was one of three cornerbacks in the NFL to produce at least three interceptions, two sacks, and a pick-six. The Lions D/ST should not be on anyone's fantasy radar at this time.
The Lions activated CB Justin Coleman off the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Coleman never developed symptoms and his stay on the list was a short one. He'll be the Lions' primary nickel back this year.
