Patriots Reportedly Signing Former Browns First-Round Pick Corey Coleman

According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, running backs Orleans Darkwa and Charles Sims worked out for New England along with ex-Patriots wide receiver Brandon Tate.

The New England Patriots announced today that they have signed running back Kenjon Barner and wide receivers Corey Coleman and Bennie Fowler.

Coleman visited with the Patriots on Monday and was scheduled to take a trip to Philadelphia Tuesday.

He was the No. 15 overall pick out of Baylor. Chris Hogan played 91 percent of offensive plays Sunday against the Houston Texans, and Phillip Dorsett was on the field for 76 percent of New England's offensive snaps. After two underwhelming seasons in Cleveland, catching 56 passes for 718 yards and two touchdowns, he was traded to the Bills this offseason for a seventh-round pick, but he failed to make the final 53-man roster.
