Bills GM says no guarantees for newly-acquired Corey Coleman

Bills GM says no guarantees for newly-acquired Corey Coleman

The one noticeable change came from Sunday night's trade of Corey Coleman.

"It's going into my third year, time to take a big step", Coleman said prior to the opening practice of training camp last month. It seems the relationship these two teams have built recently had something to do with the deal being done now.

Coleman was limited throughout portions of Saturday's practice with the Browns due to hamstring soreness, but the injury did not hinder the trade.

Hopefully a change of scenery will be just the ticket for this former Baylor star to kick-start his National Football League career.

Coleman, 24, has had each of his first two National Football League seasons cut short by a broken hand.

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 former Baylor wideout was coming off his junior season in 2015 when he racked up 74 receptions for 1,363 yards and 20 touchdown receptions.

During the offseason workouts, offensive coordinator Todd Haley let it be known that it was "a make-or-break year" for Coleman. The Browns acquired that pick when the Eagles traded up to draft quarterback Carson Wentz.

As a rookie, Coleman started all 10 games in which he played, catching 33 passes for 413 yards and three touchdowns.
