Coleman Agrees To Terms On Four-Year Deal

Seventh-round pick Kurt Coleman, a safety out of Ohio State, has agreed to terms on a four-year contract.

Coleman joins running back Charles Scott, who signed his contract earlier this week, as the only two of the Eagles' 13 draft picks to get a deal done.

Named by *The Sporting News *as a first-team All-American as a senior, the 5-11, 195-pound Coleman was a team captain and MVP as he recorded 68 tackles, five interceptions and forced three fumbles.

Coleman has not been able to take part in the recent OTAs because his class at Ohio State has not yet graduated. Coleman will join the team late next week as the OTAs continue.

During the post-draft mini-camp, Coleman was the third-team strong safety. Coleman is certainly in the mix for a roster spot, especially after Marlin Jackson ruptured his Achilles this week in practice.
