DB Kurt Coleman signs with Vikings

Former Eagles safety Kurt Coleman, who had a visit with the Jets some weeks ago, signed yesterday with the Minnesota Vikings. (NFP, April 14)

While 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.

Absolutely fascinating discussion about the decline of African American participation in MLB. This touches on so many parts of society/football on This Jackie Robinson day.

Brian, I don't know why you've been down on the lack of additions. If you haven't heard, the FO is doing a great job.

@jake100  Only 17 people listening, so I figured I'd get away with it.

@WW85  Truth is there are many more players of African decent in MLB than people realize. Yes, African American participation is in decline but many players from South America or the Caribbean Islands are of mixed race. Especially in places like Puerto Rico that were very much apart of the trans atlantic slave trade.

@Jaime Rios  What the hell....


Jaime, I don't think the Jets scouts are reading the comment section of TJB.
