The Panthers sign Coleman to a two-year contract worth $2.8 million with a $600,000 signing bonus. Coleman:
Being familiar with Sean and watching this defense, I wanted to be able to help this team build into something special and make a run. They’ve done great the last two years getting into the playoffs, but the great thing is they’re not satisfied with just getting there. I want to be a piece to help this team go and be something special.
Kurt gives us a versatile safety who can play both spots. He’s athletic, he’s intelligent, and will understand the system, having worked with Sean before…He’s a very consistent player and also adds special-teams ability. That is something we’ve talked about improving upon and we’ve made some moves this offseason looking for guys that can help us on special teams.
