Cleveland Browns trade WR Corey Coleman to Buffalo Bills for draft pick

Share

According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the Clevland Browns will be shipping Corey Coleman over to the Buffalo Bills for a draft pick. He later tried to walk that back by saying he was "not a professional wordsmith", but his personnel moves of late seem to suggest that he still believes it. Dorsey has now traded six players since he took over: Coleman, quarterbacks DeShone Kizer, Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan, defensive tackle Danny Shelton and cornerback Jason McCourty.

After he was selected No. 15 overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, the wideout has dealt with a number of injuries and inconsistencies, both in his game and behind center.

The 27-year-old has only two accrued National Football League seasons because of suspensions that have cost him 56 out of 96 possible games in his career.

Hopefully a change of scenery will be just the ticket for this former Baylor star to kick-start his National Football League career.

Coleman wasn't at practice Monday, but the team hopes to have him Tuesday. "I feel like it's important". The video also had a message, probably for his former team and doubters: "I've got some s- to prove". Add it all up, and none of Cleveland's last nine first-round picks have made it to their fifth-year option season. At the midseason mark past year he acquired Kelvin Benjamin from Carolina. The pick was part of the haul the Browns received from the Philadelphia Eagles in the trade for the second overall pick that same season (Carson Wentz). Simply put, Coleman didn't have time to make it to Pittsford for the session. He has just over 700 yards and five touchdowns since being drafted out of Baylor.
