Schefter adds that Coleman should be the Cardinals starting fullback for the 2018 season.
Coleman previously worked out for the Jets, but was not signed to a contract after the session.
Coleman, 27, originally signed on with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of UCLA back in 2012. He lasted just a few months in Minnesota before signing on to the Seahawks’ practice squad during the 2012 season and returned to the team on a future/reserve contract the following year.
Last year, the Falcons signed Coleman to a one-year contract and was once again testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
In 2017, Coleman appeared in all 16 games for the Falcons and rushed for eight yards on two carries to go along with two receptions for 20 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
