Eagles sign rookie S Coleman


The Eagles and rookie safety Kurt Coleman agreed to terms on a four-year contract, the team announced this evening.

Coleman, who hasn't been at OTAs because of a league rule which forbids players still enrolled in school from participating, was selected in the seventh round of the draft. He was the last of the Eagles' 13 picks. The team inked running back Charles Scott, who was taken in the sixth round, to a contract earlier this week.

The 5-foot-11, 192-pound Coleman was a standout at Ohio State. He has a steep hill to climb, however, if he hopes to make the team. Even with this week's season-ending injury to Marlin Jackson, Coleman still has Quintin Mikell, Nate Allen, Quintin Demps and Macho Harris ahead of him on the depth chart. Harris was recently moved to cornerback, so that may open up a slot for the rookie.
