Veteran defensive end Kenyon Coleman will reportedly become the second Cowboys free agent to follow defensive coordinator Rob Ryan to New Orleans.
A report on ProFootballTalk.com on Monday said that Coleman has signed an offer from the Saints and will ship it to them overnight to make the deal--which was initially reported on Friday--official. Linebacker Victor Butler joined Ryan and the Saints last week.
Ryan was fired as the Cowboys defensive coordinator back on January 9 and agreed to take over the New Orleans defense a month later. He and Coleman originally worked together with the Cleveland Browns in 2009.
In 2012, Coleman finished with 15 tackles and a forced fumble through seven games. His season was cut short by a torn triceps suffered in November.
