The Cleveland Browns traded Corey Coleman for a reported late-round pick to the Buffalo Bills.
Cleveland had eight first-round picks between 2012-2016. Those players include Trent Richardson, Brandon Weeden, Barkevious, Mingo, Justin Gilbert, Johnny Manziel, Danny Shelton, Cameron Erving and Coleman.
None of those players remain.
Coleman had a promising start with the Browns, compiling a two-touchdown game against the Ravens in just his second game as a pro, but injuries and then a lack of productivity when he was on the field marred his time as a Brown.
In football lore, he’ll be remembered as the guy the Browns ended up with after hand delivering Carson Wentz to the Philadelphia Eagles with the second pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
The past is the past, and the Browns do appear to be on the right track, for now, with John Dorsey running football operations as the general manager.
As for Coleman, he probably needed a fresh start. He’ll get it in Buffalo with another franchise trying to fix a lengthy void at quarterback.
Here’s how Coleman’s departure impacts the team.
