Coleman, 27, wound up signing on with the Vikings as an undrafted out of Tennessee back in 2015. However, he was unfortunately placed on waivers at end of the preseason.

Coleman bounced around between the Patriots and Seahawks at the start of the 2015 season but later returned to New England has spent the past two years with them. The Patriots re-signed Coleman as an exclusive rights free agent before trading him to the Seahawks for a late-round pick at the start of the 2017 season.

Coleman re-signed with the Seahawks in 2018 as a restricted free agent under the second-round tender before later agreeing to a four-year deal worth $36 million with the Lions last year. 

In 2019, Coleman appeared in all 16 games for the Lions and recorded 54 tackles, one interception, three forced fumbles, a recovery and 13 passes defended.
