Eagles Agree to Terms With 7th Round S Kurt Coleman

The Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to terms with seventh-round safety Kurt Coleman, Adam Caplan of Scout.com reports.

Terms were not disclosed.

Coleman was chosen with the 244th overall pick, and the last of the 13 picks the Eagles made in the 2010 NFL Draft.

A three-year starter at Ohio State, the 5-10, 192-pound Coleman finished his career with 219 tackles, including 10.5 for a loss, with 3 quarterback sacks, 5 forced fumbles, and 9 interceptions, leading the Buckeyes in that department during his junior and senior seasons.

Coleman was named the Buckeyes' Most Valuable Player after the 2009 season.

To make the Eagles 53-man roster, Coleman will need to prove himself on special teams during the pre-season. Coleman is the second Eagles draft choice to sign or agree to terms. Sixth-round running back Charles Scott (LSU) signed on Wednesday.
