Patriots Reportedly Signing Former Browns First-Round Pick Corey Coleman

Coleman, a first-round pick out of Baylor drafted 15th overall by the Cleveland Browns in 2016, was traded during training camp to the Buffalo Bills.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that the Pats signed the former first-round receiver to a one-year contract, per a source informed of the deal.

The New England Patriots have reportedly found a potential solution to their punt returning issues in running back Kenjon Barner, who will be signed to their 53-man roster, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss. He finished with 33 receptions for 413 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games his rookie season, and 23 receptions for 305 yards and two touchdowns his sophomore campaign. His mind is made up and Coleman is headed to New England. With Julian Edelman still suspended, New England has rolled with a thin receiver group, consisting of Phillip Dorsett, Chris Hogan and Cordarrelle Patterson. Farrow was signed by the Patriots on August 27, 2018, and released on September 1.

The Michigan State product spent his first three seasons in the National Football League with the Denver Broncos. He spent the last three seasons with the Eagles, where he totaled 310 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 71 attempts across 36 games (one start).

The Carolina Panthers selected Barner in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
