The Buffalo Bills have traded for wide receiver Corey Coleman from the Cleveland Browns. The trade was announced by Adam Schefter on Twitter on Sunday night.

This is the second trade between the Bills and the Browns this year, the first one being the Bills shipping Tyrod Taylor to the Browns for a third round draft pick in the 2018 NFL draft. The Bills will send a draft pick to the Browns, which according to Ian Rapoport is for a late round pick.

Coleman was drafted by the Browns in 15th overall in 2016. He still has yet to play in a full season, but when healthy, Coleman acts as a reliable receiver which is what the Bills need for their starting quarterback. The Bills have Kelvin Benjamin as the number one receiver and were in search in for a number two option. It seems like they have found it in Coleman.

In two seasons with the Browns, Coleman has caught 56 receptions for 718 receiving yards and five touchdowns.

With Coleman coming to the Bills, this should make him and Benjamin the two options on the outside and allow Zay Jones to go into the slot position, the same spot where he excelled in college. It’s no blockbuster trade, but it is a trade that can help the Bills boost their receiving core and it gives an extra weapon for the Bills quarterback.
