Former OSU, Northmont star meets with Bengals


Former Ohio State and Northmont High School standout Kurt Coleman met with the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

The Carolina Panthers on Monday cut the free safety with two years remaining on the three-year, $17 million extension he signed following the team’s run to the Super Bowl in 2015.

“In viewing him on tape, I thought he fit the things schematically we want to see and felt really good about his ability to help us continue to upgrade the defensive football team,” Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said Friday morning.

Coleman, who will turn 30 on July 1, has 21 career interceptions in eight seasons with the Eagles, Chiefs and Panthers.

He missed four games last year with a knee injury and failed to record an interception for just the second time in his career. He passed a physical in Cincinnati before driving to Indianapolis to meet with Bengals coaches.

Coleman also met with the New Orleans Saints in Indianapolis.
