NFL: Jets CB Coleman signs RFA tender
NEW YORK — Backup cornerback Drew Coleman, a restricted free agent, has signed his sixth-round tender with the New York Jets.
Coleman signed the one-year tender, worth $1.176 million, on Wednesday, leaving running back-kick returner Leon Washington as the Jets' only remaining unsigned restricted free agent.
Coleman, a sixth-round pick out of TCU in 2006, started one game last season and finished with 22 tackles and four passes defensed primarily as a backup. He has 77 tackles, two sacks and an interception in four NFL seasons.
