Cowboys sign Marcus Coleman

New, comments

We all talked about it for a couple of months, wondered why it didn't happen, but now it has happened. In a widely expected move Bill Parcells brings another "Parcells Guy" to the Dallas Cowboys.

The DFW S-T reports that the Cowboys have signed Marcus Coleman.

The Cowboys have agreed to terms of a one-year contract with former Houston Texans safety Marcus Coleman.

Coleman, a former cornerback who moved to safety, is a step toward addressing the team's wish for a true free safety to play opposite strong safety Roy Williams.

He will be reunited in Dallas with Cowboys coach Bill Parcells and cornerback Aaron Glenn. He played under Parcells with the Jets. He played with Glenn with the Jets and Texans.
