Looks like the Jets are strongly pushing for this guy.

Help me out, tell me about him. Worth a pickup?

Not a bad player. Good backup - I wouldn't sign him to starter money though.

Does he have a chance winning the starting job competing with players like Kimo von Oelhoffen, Bobby Hamilton, and likely some rookie?

If so, is he good enough to be a decent starter, or is he more of a rotational guy?

Thanks a lot.

rotational guy. Could do spot starting for a game or two. Don't expect him to be a full time starter. If he is, your DL is in trouble.

Coleman makes the most of his opportunities. While not a playmaker, he does provide depth that makes you feel comfortable.

He outplayed Marcus Spears at the end of the year...and was our only DE to get penetration out of our base 3-4 set.

The New York Jets have signed free-agent DE Kenyon Coleman (Cowboys). Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

This move imo affects more than the general fan base understands. Coleman was our savy veteran from the DE position. I love having youth...but then again I want a guy that has played it before and can give incite on the field...something that coaches can't always do. I mean it is easier for a player to explain something to another player sometimes than a coach. I really think this loss hurts more than we think. Although maybe the one gap scheme change makes coleman's knowledge expendable. I really think he would have been worth keeping.

He is a great pass rush guy. Like others have said, he is a quality backup.

Are you bring him in to start?
