Safety Kurt Coleman has agreed to terms with the Minnesota Vikings on a one-year contract, per his agent Blake Baratz's Twitter account.

A seventh-round pick of the Eagles out of Ohio State in 2010, Coleman was a two-year starter and special teams player in his four seasons with the team. In 59 career games (29 starts), Coleman had 239 tackles, seven interceptions and 34 special teams tackles.

This past season, Coleman made his biggest impact on special teams where he ranked fourth on the team with nine special teams tackles. In 2012, Coleman started all 14 games he played in and finished second on the team with a career-high 105 tackles. One year earlier, Coleman earned NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors against Washington after intercepting quarterback Red Grossman three times. Coleman was the 11th Eagle in franchise history to have three picks in a single game, but the first to do so since Joe Scarpati in 1966.

The 5-foot-10, 200-pound Coleman was very much involved with the Eagles' Tackling Breast Cancer campaign as his father, Ron, is a breast cancer survivor.
