Two years ago, the notion a team could pick up Corey Coleman off the scrap heap was not logical thinking. He was a prolific wide receiver at Baylor, taken in the first round of the 2016 draft by the Browns, who made him the 15th player selected. Little has gone right for Coleman since then, and on Thursday the Giants signed him to their practice squad.
Coleman has a gaudy pedigree, but he is an NFL vagabond. He played in 19 games in 2016 and 2017 for the Browns and accumulated 56 receptions for 718 yards and five touchdowns. In August, the Browns traded him to the Bills, and all they got back was a seventh-round draft pick. Coleman lasted six days with the Bills before he was released. The Patriots signed Coleman in early September and released him six days later.
The Giants are 1-5 and struggling to find the end zone. The coaching staff will take a look at Coleman and determine if he can help.
Receiver and kick returner Kalif Raymond was removed from the practice squad for Coleman.
