Bills take low-risk gamble in acquiring Coleman from Browns

Browns need to consider trading for Khalil Mack

Browns need to consider trading for Khalil Mack

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Coleman didn't fit in with Cleveland's locker room, which is why the Browns shipped him out for a cheap price tag.

As for Coleman, he probably needed a fresh start. Antonio Callaway is now the starting wide receiver opposite Jarvis Landry in two-wide sets, and Rashard Higgins worked exclusively with the first unit as the No. 3 wide receiver. Buffalo has agreed to terms on a trade with the Cleveland Browns to acquire WR Corey Coleman.

As for the Browns, they now have traded or released every first-round pick they drafted between 2009 and 2016. "He's not going to automatically get anything". He lasted four years before the Browns cut him, and he never played another down of NFL football. "He's got to come in here and compete". Simply put, Coleman didn't have time to make it to Pittsford for the session. Beane said, "Ideally guys in the first round don't take so long and there's various reasons whether it's injuries or whether it's the system, whether it's just not a good fit for where you're at, there's a lot reasons".

One cloud on the horizon has been the Trump administration's trade fights with China, the European Union , Canada and Mexico. The July jobs report indicated that U.S. employers added 157,000 jobs on net last month, fewer than economists expected.

The Bills lack proven depth at receiver behind starter Kelvin Benjamin.

Two hand injuries have kept Coleman out of 13 games through two seasons. They also have used Jeremy Kerley as a slot receiver.

Coleman, 24, has 56 career catches for 718 yards and five touchdowns. Zay Jones, a high draft pick in 2017, is still recovering from surgery and hasn't taken part in camp just yet.
