Former Philadelphia Eagles safety Kurt Coleman will sign with the Minnesota Vikings, his agent announced on Twitter.
Coleman, 25, started 29 games for the Eagles in four seasons since they selected him in the seventh round (244th overall) in the 2010 draft. Coleman's run as a starter ended last season, though he still appeared in 15 games, five as a safety and cornerback.
The Vikings hosted Coleman last week, but he left without signing an offer they reportedly made. The Vikings have safeties Jamarca Sanford, Harrison Smith, Mistral Raymond, Andrew Sendejo and Robert Blanton also under contract this season. Sanford and Raymond are free agents in 2015.
