Browns send Corey Coleman to Bills for late-round pick

Corey Coleman being gone is a yawn. What do the Browns do next at receiver

Before Corey Coleman arrives at St. John Fisher, he must pass a physical in Buffalo to complete the trade with Cleveland.

Coleman had a promising start with the Browns, compiling a two-touchdown game against the Ravens in just his second game as a pro, but injuries and then a lack of productivity when he was on the field marred his time as a Brown. During his first two injury-plagued years in the National Football League, the 5-foot-11, 185-pound wideout has totaled just 56 receptions (131 targets) for 718 yards and five touchdowns in 19 games (18 starts).

Coleman will be remembered as the player taken after the Browns elected to trade out of the No. 2 spot in the 2016 NFL Draft. You can turn on his clips, he makes a lot of good plays.

The trade is a low-risk, high reward move for Buffalo. "So it's a fresh start for him to come in here and compete".

This trade is the second one the Bills have made over the a year ago that involved a first-round wide receiver. "I'm sure there's things that went well there. He's gotta come in here and earn it whether it's a starting job or just a job on the 53".

"We'll see what happens", Beane said. The Cleveland Browns had three first round picks last year-Myles Garrett, Jabrill Peppers, and David Njoku-who are now the most experienced first round picks on the roster.

By trading the No. 2 pick to the Philadelphia Eagles, the Browns passed on the chance to select Carson Wentz, a 6-foot-6, 235-pound quarterback whom chief strategy officer Paul DePodesta felt that despite being a two-year starter for National Championship teams at North Dakota State, did not have the potential to be a top-20 NFL quarterback.
