Browns trade former 1st-round pick Corey Coleman to Bills

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

Fantasy Football Trade Reaction: Corey Coleman gets second chance with Bills

Bills general manager Brandon Beane confirmed Monday that the team agreed to terms on a trade for the receiver, sending a 2020 seventh-round pick back to Cleveland.

The Cleveland Browns traded Corey Coleman for a reported late-round draft pick to the Buffalo Bills.

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. He lasted four years before the Browns cut him, and he never played another down of NFL football. Both Callaway and third-year wideout Rashard Higgins have looked quite impressive during training camp so far, which could have been one of the many reasons that the Browns chose to deal Coleman.

"I feel motivated. Everybody wants to see, so I'm just working each and every day, putting my head down, just going after it, man".

Coleman has been hurt a lot with two broken hands.

"He's not going to automatically get anything, he's going to have to come in here and compete and that's what I told him". "I don't know what type of changes, but some need to be made". I'm sure he wishes he'd played all 16 games both seasons.

Coleman, 24, has 56 career catches for 718 yards and five touchdowns. And health has been a big problem for Coleman throughout his career. "It didn't work out in Cleveland probably the way he thought when he was first drafted or the way they thought when they drafted him in the first round, so it's a fresh start for him to come in here and compete". He was selected after the Browns sent the No. 2 overall pick to the Philadelphia Eagles as part of the trade with which the Eagles selected quarterback Carson Wentz. National Football League teams are also scrambling to adjust their rosters in anticipation for the start of the season.
