Player Of The Week
Coleman quick study at safety
The preseason will provide a better test, but if the first two weeks of training camp are any indication, the Texans should have no worries about veteran cornerback Marcus Coleman's switch to free safety.

Coleman is making an almost
seamless
transition to a position that is as mentally demanding as any on the field because he is required to make all the calls in the secondary.

Coleman has done a good job of putting himself and his teammates in the right spots, and athleticism
has allowed him to make
the move look pretty easy at times.

It's not a reach to say Coleman will be one of the best athletes in the league at his position.

The fact the Texans moved Coleman to free safety had more to do with upgrading the entire secondary than it did with his ability to continue playing cornerback.

He still runs and covers well, and his ball skills always have been a strength.

With more opportunities to make plays on balls in front of him, don't be surprised if Coleman excels at free safety and adds several years to his career.

Looks like we don't have to even worry about the transition.
