According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the Clevland Browns will be shipping Corey Coleman over to the Buffalo Bills for a draft pick.

Coleman vaulted to the top of the 2016 National Football League draft due to an ultra-productive college career at Baylor that saw him win the Biletnikoff award his senior season.

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

The 24-year-old has been limited to 19 games through his first two seasons because of injury.

The Bills could've waited and hoped Coleman got cut, but there are no guarantees with that, Beane felt there's no better time than present, "I just thought now was the right opportunity to get him in here to start learning this offense as opposed to waiting any longer".

"We'll tell him how we do things here, what the expectations are". Add it all up, and none of Cleveland's last nine first-round picks have made it to their fifth-year option season.

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

Coleman turned 56 receptions into 413 yards, five touchdowns and 34 first downs, including 17 each in both 2016 and 2017. "He's just coming in here to compete and earn". He also traded for quarterback Tyrod Taylor and used the No. 1 pick in this year's draft on Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield and the No. 4 pick on Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward, the two players now tasked with breaking the Browns' first-round jinx.
