Erik Coleman Happy To Be Returning To Lions

Way back before the NFL lockout began last year, the Detroit Lions signed safety Erik Coleman. He wanted to have his future settled before the lockout prevented roster moves from being made, and that was a good decision considering the lockout didn't come to an end until the summer.

Unfortunately for Coleman, he didn't get to play very much in 2011 because of an injury. He got hurt against the Dallas Cowboys and was placed on injured reserve a couple weeks later, ending his season in October.

The good news for Coleman is that he will get another chance with the Lions after being re-signed to a one-year deal. The deal was worked out yesterday, and he is quite happy to be back with the team.

Coleman's role with the Lions in 2012 will likely see him play special teams and serve as depth at safety.
