Browns trade disappointing WR Coleman to Bills for pick

The Bills made a significant move concerning their wide receiving corps Sunday.

That trend continued over the weekend with news that the Browns have traded Corey Coleman, the No. 15 pick in the 2016 draft, to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for a seventh-round pick in 2020 (the National Football League equivalent to a handful of magic beans).

Corey Coleman, the latest Browns first-round pick who didn't have much of a career in Cleveland.

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

Thank you for signing up for the Top 3 Newsletter. Brown got back draft picks in return and used one on Coleman, a speed burner from Baylor who was considered undersized by most draft experts.

He played just 19 games because of injuries and eventually symbolized the overall dysfunction of Cleveland's previous regime. That season he rolled up 74 receptions for 1,363 yards and an eye-popping 20 touchdowns.

From the 2011 to 2016 drafts, Cleveland took 9 players. Beane spoke Monday morning, less than 12 hours after Buffalo gave up a seventh round-pick in the 2020 draft to acquire the speedy but injury-prone receiver. He was selected by the Browns after they sent their number 2 overall pick to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Prior to tearing multiple ligaments in his left knee, including the ACL, in a win over the Los Angeles Rams last December, Wentz completed 265 passes for 3,296 yards and 33 touchdowns against seven interceptions and was considered a potential NFL MVP candidate.
