Former Eagles safety Kurt Coleman, who had a visit with the Jets some weeks ago, signed yesterday with the Minnesota Vikings. (NFP, April 14)
Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comWhile I’ve been a little down on the Jets lack of additions in free agency, this is one non-acquisition that I 100 percent support.
Coleman offered nothing different to the Jets that they didn’t already have with Dawan Landry and Jaiquawn Jarrett. While Landry can call the defense, he’s better in support around the line of scrimmage and while we saw some flashes from Antonio Allen in 2013, there’s still question marks about the safeties in coverage.
