Cleveland Browns trade WR Corey Coleman to Buffalo Bills

Cleveland Browns trade WR Corey Coleman to Buffalo Bills

Buffalo acquired Corey Coleman from the Browns, the teams announced Sunday. The first draft pick made by former GM Sashi Brown, who oversaw a team that won exactly one game over his brief tenure, Coleman broke his right hand in each of his first two seasons and had a total of 56 receptions for 718 yards and five touchdowns in 19 games, 18 of them as a starter. 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).

Because of injuries, Coleman was limited to just 19 games over his first two National Football League seasons, and there were off-the-field concerns, including one that resulted in a lengthy police investigation and another in an early trip home from a road trip to play the Houston Texans last fall.

Coleman's time ran out in Cleveland under new general manager John Dorsey. The Bills now have Coleman, Kelvin Benjamin, Andre Holmes, and Zay Jones as their starting wide receivers, but they will need to find a balance between their front-runners.

As for Coleman, he probably needed a fresh start.

Coleman also had off-field issues.

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.

Buffalo entered training camp with Kelvin Benjamin as its top receiver and questions down the rest of its depth chart.

The Bills are in the midst of overhauling their offence under new co-ordinator Brian Daboll and a new starting quarterback after Buffalo traded Tyrod Taylor to Cleveland in March.
