Lions | Erik Coleman trying to secure starting job

Detroit Lions SS Erik Coleman is eight pounds lighter this offseason, and he said Sunday, June 17, that he is at the same weight and in the same shape as he was entering the 2008 and 2009 seasons with the Atlanta Falcons. In those two seasons, he started all 16 regular season games in each year, and posted 127 and 139 tackles. Coleman has played a lot of reps with the first-team this offseason due to injuries to others. The starting safety spot opposite FS Louis Delmas is not engraved in stone, so Coleman has a chance to return to the starting lineup.
