PITTSFORD, NY – Earlier this offseason the Buffalo Bills were shopping veteran quarterback Tyrod Taylor and found a suitor in the Cleveland Browns. Five months later, the two teams sought each other out as trade partners again.
Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Buffalo has sent a 2020 seventh-round pick to the Browns in exchange for speedy wide receiver Corey Coleman.
Cleveland is trading former first-round pick WR Corey Coleman to the Buffalo Bills for a draft pick, per source.
Coleman was the player the Browns selected after trading the No. 2 overall pick to Philadelphia so the Eagles could draft Carson Wentz.

A 2016 first-round pick, Coleman has experienced some tough luck in his first two years in the NFL. After breaking his right hand in back-to-back seasons, he’s been restricted to just 18 total games. In his rookie campaign, Coleman snared 33 passes for 413 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games. Last year, the Baylor product played in nine games and caught another 23 balls for 305 yards and two more TDs.
The addition of Coleman provides an instant boost to a Bills receiving corps that has been widely ranked as the NFL’s worst ahead of the 2018 season. Behind Kelvin Benjamin and Zay Jones – who made his training camp debut on Sunday – Buffalo has a number of unproven, inconsistent talents at the position.
