Jets CB Coleman signs RFA tender

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.
