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

The Browns traded the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 National Football League draft for a flurry of picks and used their first selection at 15th overall on Coleman.

In 2016, Corey Coleman was at the peak of his football career.

Buffalo acquired Corey Coleman from the Browns, the teams announced Sunday.

Coleman, 24, was the No. 15 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport notes the move frees up the guaranteed portion of Coleman's 2018 and '19 salaries from escrow.

This trade is the second one the Bills have made over the a year ago that involved a first-round wide receiver.

"He's not going to automatically get anything, he's going to have to come in here and compete and that's what I told him". Both Callaway and third-year wideout Rashard Higgins have looked quite impressive during training camp so far, which could have been one of the many reasons that the Browns made a decision to deal Coleman.

"You can't coach speed, and we're always looking to add it", Beane said.

Buffalo entered training camp with Kelvin Benjamin as its top receiver and questions down the rest of its depth chart. He has 56 catches for 718 yards and five touchdowns in his two-year career.

He played just 19 games because of injuries and eventually symbolized the overall dysfunction of Cleveland's previous regime. They also have used Jeremy Kerley as a slot receiver. Zay Jones, a high draft pick in 2017, is still recovering from surgery and hasn't taken part in camp just yet.
