Kenyon Coleman follows Rob Ryan and Victor Butler to New Orleans

Defensive end Kenyon Coleman is following Rob Ryan yet again. Coleman agreed to a contract with the Saints on Friday. New Orleans hired Ryan as its defensive coordinator earlier this off-season, and earlier this week, it signed former Cowboys linebacker Victor Butler to a two-year deal.

Coleman played for Ryan for two seasons in Cleveland before following him to Dallas. Coleman, like Ryan, was with the Cowboys for two seasons. The Cowboys, who are moving to the 4-3 defense, did not try to re-sign the free agent.

Coleman played in only seven games, with five starts, in 2012. He missed two with a knee injury and then went on injured reserve in November with a triceps injury. He had 22 tackles and a forced fumble in 2012 and 66 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble the past two seasons combined.

Coleman previously played for the Cowboys from 2003-2006.
