Corey Coleman gets second chance with Bills

Sunday night, John Dorsey traded Coleman to the Buffalo Bills. The teams did not disclose what the Bills sent to the Browns, but ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the compensation Monday morning.

Coleman was bitten by the injury bug on multiple occasions since being selected by the Browns with the No. 15 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, but with a new season underway, the hope was he can be an impactful player. During his first two injury-plagued years in the National Football League, the 5-foot-11, 185-pound wideout has totaled just 56 receptions (131 targets) for 718 yards and five touchdowns in 19 games (18 starts). "I don't know all - what went right or wrong there". Cleveland will receive a future draft pick in the deal. "So it's a fresh start for him to come in here and compete". "I'm sure there's things that went well there". You can turn on his clips, he makes a lot of good plays.

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.

"He hasn't played a 16-game season yet in two years", Beane said. "He's got to come in and earn it, whether it's a starting job or just a job on the 53 [-man roster]".

Beane classified the trade as a "low-risk" move.

"We all go through things in life that don't go our way all the time", he said.

You can also add defensive tackle Phil Taylor, the Browns' first-round pick in 2011, to that list.

In football lore, he'll be remembered as the guy the Browns ended up with after hand delivering Carson Wentz to the Philadelphia Eagles with the second pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
