Browns get $3.5 million in escrow back from Corey Coleman deal

That trend continued over the weekend with news that the Browns have traded Corey Coleman, the No. 15 pick in the 2016 draft, to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for a seventh-round pick in 2020 (the National Football League equivalent to a handful of magic beans). He's expected to make his practice debut Tuesday, though it's uncertain whether he'll play in Buffalo's preseason opener against Carolina on Thursday. "I'm sure there is things that went well there".

"He hasn't played a 16-game season yet in two years", Beane said. "So it's a fresh start for him to come in here and compete".

The Bills now have Coleman, Kelvin Benjamin, Andre Holmes, and Zay Jones as their starting wide receivers, but they will need to find a balance between their front-runners. In his first two seasons, Coleman tallied 56 catches for 718 yards and five touchdowns. They also picked up some cold, hard cash.

We can't change six players after 60 minutes. "Maybe we will do some magic things with the formation on Tuesday". You can keep up with the game from Anfield with our live blog from 6.15pm.

The trade is a low-risk, high reward move for Buffalo. Beane said, "Ideally guys in the first round don't take so long and there's various reasons whether it's injuries or whether it's the system, whether it's just not a good fit for where you're at, there's a lot reasons". "He's just coming in here to compete and earn".

For Coleman, it seemed as though he finally had a legitimate quarterback that could toss him the ball for the first time in his career, whether it was either Tyrod Taylor or Baker Mayfield. He was selected after the Browns sent the No. 2 overall pick to the Philadelphia Eagles as part of the trade with which the Eagles selected quarterback Carson Wentz.
