Kurt Coleman is a member of the Minnesota Vikings, according to his agent. The former Philadelphia Eagles safety was in Minnesota last week but did not agree to terms with the team then, agent Blake Baratz told KSTP.

Coleman has played the last four seasons with Philadelphia. In 16 games last season, he recorded 14 tackles.

The former Ohio State Buckeye was drafted by the Eagles in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL Draft.

He joins an experienced secondary with Harrison Smith, Jamarca Sanford and Andrew Sendejo already considered candidates for starting spots.
