The Browns traded Corey Coleman, yet another awful first-round pick

According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the Clevland Browns will be shipping Corey Coleman over to the Buffalo Bills for a draft pick.

After he was selected No. 15 overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, the wideout has dealt with a number of injuries and inconsistencies, both in his game and behind center.

Cleveland fans are used to the Browns disappointing them on Sundays in the fall, but on this specific Sunday during the summer, it seems as though many have been let down by their team again.


The 24-year-old has been limited to 19 games through his first two seasons because of injury.

Beane said Coleman still must pass a physical Monday before the trade is finalized.

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.


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

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.

He was named in a police report regarding an alleged felonious assault a year ago. They also picked up some cold, hard cash. Coleman has 718 career receiving yards and five touchdowns over those two seasons. "He's just coming in here to compete and earn".


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.
