Shon Coleman, former Auburn OL, signs with new NFL team
Shon Coleman was a standout offensive lineman at Auburn, working his way up to becoming a third-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
Back in 2017, Coleman was a mainstay in the Cleveland Browns’ offensive line, starting all 16 games for the team. But, since then, he hasn’t played in a regular-season NFL game.
Now, though, the former Tiger is getting another NFL chance. Per Chicago Bears insider Chris Emma, the team is signing Coleman to a contract and waiving punter Ryan Winslow:
The Bears have signed veteran tackle Shon Coleman. The 30-year-old started 16 games for the Browns in 2017 but has not played in a game since. Punter Ryan Winslow was waived.

Coleman spent the 2018-20 seasons with the San Francisco 49ers and spent some time with the Indianapolis Colts late last season. But, he didn’t appear in any games for either squad.
Can he earn a roster spot with the Bears? We’ll see how he fares as the preseason gets underway this summer.
