The Patriots have signed free-agent wide receiver Corey Coleman.
A former first-round pick, Coleman has quite a lot of potentials. Still, the Patriots will be his third team in 2018, and the 24-year-old has been limited due to injuries in his two NFL seasons.
He was a member of the 0-16 Browns in 2017, and his dropped pass in the final game of the season against the Steelers went viral for its supposed symbolism of the team’s shortcomings. Yet Coleman will now enter a very different team culture, and the Patriots are in need of receivers.
New England is without Julian Edelman until Week 5 due to suspension and had only three receivers on the roster Tuesday before signing Coleman and Bennie Fowler.
Coleman will have not only a chance to stay on the Patriots’ roster but make an impression. Here are some things to know about the Dallas native.
1. The Bills cut him after less than a month in Buffalo.
The recent news around Coleman has been his downward spiral from being with the team that originally drafted him as recently as early August, to being traded to the Bills, to being released into free agency.
