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.
Coleman, 24, was the Browns' No. 15 overall pick in 2016.
Sunday night, it was announced that the Browns were trading the former top NFL Draft pick.
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.
Coleman only fetched Cleveland a seventh-round pick at the 2020 draft.
Corey Coleman is getting a fresh start.
Rick Gates testifies he committed crimes while working for Paul Manafort
According to multiple news outlets , Gates was asked on Monday if he was involved in criminal activity when working with Manafort. Manafort's defense has sought to blame Gates for any illegal conduct, calling him a liar and embezzler.
This Browns-Bills exchange follows the trade of former Buffalo quarterback Tyrod Taylor to Cleveland in March.
Coleman's tenure with the Browns will be best remembered for his drop late in the fourth quarter in last season's finale at Pittsburgh that sealed the Browns' 0-16 finish.
"We all go through things in life that don't go our way all the time".
Meanwhile, the Browns will make a gesture of good faith toward wide receiver Josh Gordon by moving him from the did not report list to the non-football injury list, according to Rapoport. 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).
The Bills lack proven depth at receiver behind starter Kelvin Benjamin. They also picked up some cold, hard cash. "He's just coming in here to compete and earn".
