Bills acquire WR Coleman in trade with Browns

The Buffalo Bills acquired wide receiver Corey Coleman from the Cleveland Browns for an undisclosed future draft pick on Sunday, the Bills announced on their Twitter feed.

According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the pick the Browns are getting is in the late rounds.

It is the second big deal between this clubs this offseason, coming five months after the Bills sent starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor to Cleveland for a third-round pick. That same day, Cleveland acquired receiver Jarvis Landry from Miami as the Browns front office has done some major work to its offense this offseason following an 0-16 season in 2017.

The club also picked quarterback Baker Mayfield with the No. 1 overall pick and took running back Nick Chubb in the second round of the draft, and Cleveland hopes wide receiver Josh Gordon will be ready for a season opener for the first time since his 2012 rookie season.

As for Coleman, he was viewed as the likely No. 3 receiver in Cleveland. A first-round draft pick in 2016 (No. 15 overall), Coleman has 56 catches for 718 yards and five touchdowns in 19 games over two seasons.

The Bills are also rebuilding their offense, themselves drafting a quarterback in the first round (Josh Allen) after acquiring receiver Kelvin Benjamin from the Carolina Panthers at the deadline last season.
