Cleveland Browns Trade Corey Coleman To Buffalo Bills For A Draft Pick

Browns need to consider trading for Khalil Mack

In 19 games, Coleman had 56 receptions for 718 yards and five touchdown catches. 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.

With Josh Gordon yet to report to training camp and Corey Coleman traded, the Cleveland Browns still have interest in free agent wideout Dez Bryant, according to an NFL Network report Monday.

Beane said he's aware of Coleman's struggles during his two seasons in Cleveland and hopes the former first-round draft pick takes advantage of a fresh start in Buffalo.

A seventh-round draft choice is a pretty low return for a player the Browns selected with the 15th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Now Coleman will need to take that step with the Bills, where he will need to get acclimated to Buffalo's offense in short order.

Coleman's time ran out in Cleveland under new general manager John Dorsey.

Coleman, 24, has had each of his first two National Football League seasons cut short by a broken hand. He also traded for quarterback Tyrod Taylor and used the No. 1 pick in this year's draft on Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield and the No. 4 pick on Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward, the two players now tasked with breaking the Browns' first-round jinx.

As a rookie, Coleman started all 10 games in which he played, catching 33 passes for 413 yards and three touchdowns. National Football League teams are also scrambling to adjust their rosters in anticipation for the start of the season.
