Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane confirmed the terms of the trade this morning when he met with Buffalo reporters to discuss the deal, which is pending Coleman passing a physical Monday.
Corey Coleman, the latest Browns first-round pick who didn't have much of a career in Cleveland. Coleman tallied just 56 receptions for 718 yards and five touchdowns in 19 games over two seasons with the Browns.
"It hadn't worked out in Cleveland probably the way he thought when he was drafted or the way they thought when they drafted him in the first round", Beane said. "You can turn on the clips, he makes a lot of good plays", he added. "Its low risk and we'll see what happens".
Buffalo was desperate for more talent and depth in their wide receiver group.
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.
"We all go through things in life that don't go our way all the time", he said. "I'm sure there's things that went well there". "He's just coming in here to compete and earn". He was selected by the Browns after they sent their number 2 overall pick to the Philadelphia Eagles. Cleveland also owns a 2019 third-round pick from New England (DL Danny Shelton trade), a conditional 2019 seventh-round pick from Jacksonville (QB Cody Kessler trade) and a 2020 sixth-round pick from Arizona (DB Jamar Taylor trade).
