The Buffalo Bills signed journeyman safety Kurt Coleman on Friday to replace Rafael Bush, who is retiring after nine seasons.

Coleman, 31, is entering his 10th season and received a one-year contract that is reportedly worth just over $1 million.

He played all 16 regular-season games last season for the New Orleans Saints, making nine starts. Coleman finished with 32 tackles.

Coleman has played for Bills coach Sean McDermott during previous stints with the Philadelphia Eagles and Carolina Panthers.

Bush made seven starts for the Bills last season, finishing the season with 45 tackles and 1.5 sacks.
