Browns trade former first-round pick Corey Coleman to Bills

Browns trade former first-round pick Corey Coleman to Bills

In a summer filled with plenty of speculation that he could be dealt at some point this offseason, wide receiver Corey Coleman, who was hoping to have a solid season this year now that he's fully healthy, has been traded to the Buffalo Bills for a late-round pick. Once a former first-round pick of the Browns in 2016, Coleman sounds motivated to prove his now former team wrong.

His first two seasons saw him limited to only 19 games as he suffered a broken hand in back-to-back years to start his career. 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 made a decision to deal Coleman.

The Browns traded the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 National Football League draft for a flurry of picks and used their first selection at 15th overall on Coleman. I'm sure there's things that went well there. "So it's a fresh start for him to come in here and compete".

Brandon Beane confirmed that the Bills gave up a seventh round pick in 2020 to get the wide receiver.

Buffalo entered training camp with Kelvin Benjamin as its top receiver and questions down the rest of its depth chart. Buffalo signed Jeremy Kerley in free agency and also used late-round picks to select Ray-Ray McCloud and Austin Proehl. "He's just coming in here to compete and earn". He was selected by the Browns after they sent their number 2 overall pick to the Philadelphia Eagles.
