The unrestricted free agent said tonight he agreed to another one-year deal to remain a Lion. The contract hasn't been signed but should be Friday.
"I feel like I still have a lot to prove and, hopefully, I get that opportunity and help this team, hopefully, win a championship one day," Coleman said.
Coleman missed all of the 2011 season after suffering a fractured fibula and severe ankle sprain against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 4. He'll be entering his ninth season in the NFL; he spent three with the Falcons and four with the Jets where he had his most success in starting 50 of a total 64 games.
