JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Former Cal defensive tackle Deandre Coleman agreed to terms or signed an undrafted free agent contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday according to a story published by NFL.com.

Coleman played in all 49 games possible with 25 starts during his collegiate career at Cal over the past four seasons (2010-13) after redshirting as a true freshman in 2009. He finished his career with 125 tackles, 26.5 tackles for loss (-89 yards), 7.5 sacks (-39 yards), three pass breakups, two fumble recoveries and four quarterback hurries. Coleman was a third-team All-Pac-12 selection of Phil Steele and an honorable mention All-Pac-12 choice by the league’s coaches after being one of three Cal players to start all 12 games in 2013. He led the Bears in tackles for loss (career-high 9.0) and tackle for loss yardage (-27 yards), while ranking third in sacks (2.5, -4 yards) and first among defensive linemen in tackles (40).

Coleman was among the top 2014 NFL Draft prospects to attend the NFL Combine in February along with Cal teammates TE Richard Rodgers and LB Khairi Fortt, who were selected in the draft in the third and fourth rounds by the Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints on Friday and Saturday, respectively.
