...His signing gives New Orleans depth at safety since Kenny Vaccaro is expected to sign with another team this offseason. Coleman will compete with Vonn Bell at strong safety, though there should be enough snaps for both players to have significant roles since New Orleans often uses three-safety sets.

Coleman, who signed a three-year deal reportedly worth $18 million, drew interest from multiple teams, including the Cincinnati Bengals and New York Giants. He chose the Saints because he likes the team's culture and chances of winning...

I think they will target another one in the draft. Possibly round 3.
