Bills GM says no guarantees for newly-acquired Corey Coleman

Before Corey Coleman arrives at St. John Fisher, he must pass a physical in Buffalo to complete the trade with Cleveland.

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.

As for the Browns, they now have traded or released every first-round pick they drafted between 2009 and 2016.

His first two seasons saw him limited to only 19 games as he suffered a broken hand in back-to-back years to start his career.

Cleveland selected Coleman out of Baylor with the 15th pick in the 2016 draft. I'm sure there's things that went well there.

Now Coleman will need to take that step with the Bills, where he will need to get acclimated to Buffalo's offense in short order.

The Bills made what they believe is a low-risk, high-reward deal to bring in wide receiver Corey Coleman.

The Bills lack proven depth at receiver behind starter Kelvin Benjamin.

The 27-year-old has only two accrued National Football League seasons because of suspensions that have cost him 56 out of 96 possible games in his career. They also have used Jeremy Kerley as a slot receiver.

Returning starter Zay Jones is coming off right knee and shoulder surgery and was cleared for practice for the first time Sunday.

The Bills are in the midst of overhauling their offence under new co-ordinator Brian Daboll and a new starting quarterback after Buffalo traded Tyrod Taylor to Cleveland in March. The Browns acquired that pick when the Eagles traded up to draft quarterback Carson Wentz.
