Browns Trade 2016 First Rounder Corey Coleman To Bills For Draft Pick

Cleveland Browns trade WR Corey Coleman to Buffalo Bills for draft pick

Browns trade former 1st-round pick Corey Coleman to Bills

The team gave up a seventh-round pick in 2020 to acquire the former first rounder from the Cleveland Browns. He recorded 23 receptions for 305 yards and two touchdowns in 2017 after being drafted by the Browns in 2016.

With Josh Gordon yet to report to training camp and Corey Coleman traded, the Cleveland Browns still have interest in free agent wideout Dez Bryant, according to an NFL Network report Monday. Both Callaway and third-year wideout Rashard Higgins have looked quite impressive during training camp so far, which could have been one of the many reasons that the Browns made a decision to deal Coleman. 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.

During the offseason workouts, offensive coordinator Todd Haley let it be known that it was "a make-or-break year" for Coleman.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Corey Coleman (19) runs after a catch against the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. He lasted four years before the Browns cut him, and he never played another down of NFL football. He was selected after the Browns sent the No. 2 overall pick to the Philadelphia Eagles as part of the trade with which the Eagles selected quarterback Carson Wentz. The video also had a message, probably for his former team and doubters: "I've got some s- to prove".
