Erik Coleman to start for Lions?

Amari Spievey was one of the worst starting safeties in the league last year, ranking 76th out of 86 on ProFootballFocus. The Lions didn’t bring in any competition for him this offseason, but according to DetroitLions.com, veteran Erik Coleman, who missed most of last season with a knee injury, will compete with Spievey for the starting job now that he is healthy. Coleman, 30, is a marginal player at best, but Spievey was so bad last year that he could give him a run for his money in a competition for the starting job. Both are splitting 1st team reps. Whoever wins the competition, strong safety figures to be a position of major weakness for the Lions again in 2012.
