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

Dez Bryant still not good option for Browns even after Corey Coleman trade

The teams did not disclose what the Bills sent to the Browns, but ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the compensation Monday morning.

Cleveland traded Corey Coleman, the team's first round pick in 2016, to the Buffalo Bills for a 7th round pick in 2020.

Because of injuries, Coleman was limited to just 19 games over his first two National Football League seasons, and there were off-the-field concerns, including one that resulted in a lengthy police investigation and another in an early trip home from a road trip to play the Houston Texans last fall.

Sunday night, it was announced that the Browns were trading the former top NFL Draft pick.

Coleman's tenure with the Browns will be best remembered for his drop late in the fourth quarter in last season's finale at Pittsburgh that sealed the Browns' 0-16 finish. "You can turn on the clips, he makes a lot of good plays", he added.

He was named in a police report regarding an alleged felonious assault a year ago.

As a rookie, Coleman started all 10 games in which he played, catching 33 passes for 413 yards and three touchdowns. He recorded 23 receptions for 305 yards and two touchdowns in 2017 after being drafted by the Browns in 2016. They also picked up some cold, hard cash. In March, Cleveland acquired quarterback Tyrod Taylor from Buffalo. The Browns acquired that pick when the Eagles traded up to draft quarterback Carson Wentz.
