Report: Lions sign safety Erik Coleman

The Lions have signed safety Erik Coleman to a one-year deal according to a report from

Coleman was released by the Falcons last week after falling down the depth chart during the 2010 season when he started just one game of the dozen he played in.

The 28-year-old safety played for three seasons with Atlanta and started all 16 games in the 2008 and 2009 seasons.

Coming out of Washington State, he spent his first four NFL seasons with the Jets where he was a starter for the first three years.

Coleman’s release was timely because it allowed him to sign with another club before a possible lockout on March 4. If there is a lockout no players will be allowed to sign.

A safety that wasn't good enough to stick with other teams has now signed with the Lions? I check out your blog and this is all you have to offer? Lions Lowdown. It's more like Lions Hoedown. A square dance with a Pollyanna calling the do-si-dos. Why not tell it like it is, like that Wrath of John dude?
