Browns trading former first-round pick Corey Coleman to Bills

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.

Bills general manager Brandon Beane described the trade to acquire receiver Corey Coleman from Cleveland as a low-risk gamble in a bid to address an unsettled position in Buffalo.

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. Giving up a seventh-round pick two years from now couldn't get much lower in terms of value, which speaks to how talent evaluators across the National Football League regarded Coleman after two seasons. "I don't know all - what went right or wrong there". Philly got the better part of that trade, as they used their newly acquired pick to draft quarterback Carson Wentz. I'm sure he wishes he'd played all 16 games both seasons.

Green Bay Packers cornerback Davon House (31) gives up a reception to Cleveland Browns wide receiver Corey Coleman (19) at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland. "You can turn on the clips, he makes a lot of good plays", he added.

"We'll see what happens", Beane said. "He's just coming in here to compete and earn". Cleveland also owns a 2019 third-round pick from New England (DL Danny Shelton trade), a conditional 2019 seventh-round pick from Jacksonville (QB Cody Kessler trade) and a 2020 sixth-round pick from Arizona (DB Jamar Taylor trade). He was selected by the Browns after they sent their number 2 overall pick to the Philadelphia Eagles.
