Coleman, a first-round pick in 2016, was traded to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, reportedly for a seventh-round pick in the 2020 draft.
To this point in his career, the 15th overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft has failed to live up to his draft hype.
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 teams did not disclose what the Bills sent to the Browns, but ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the compensation Monday morning.
The most infamous moment in Coleman's short National Football League career thus far was a dropped pass late in the fourth quarter against the Pittsburgh Steelers on a 4th and 2 that sealed the Browns' fate for a historic 0-16 season. Antonio Callaway is now the starting wide receiver opposite Jarvis Landry in two-wide sets, and Rashard Higgins worked exclusively with the first unit as the No. 3 wide receiver.
"We'll tell him how we do things here, what the expectations are".
Buffalo entered training camp with Kelvin Benjamin as its top receiver and questions down the rest of its depth chart. "He's just coming in here to compete and earn". The Browns acquired that pick when the Eagles traded up to draft quarterback Carson Wentz.
You can also add defensive tackle Phil Taylor, the Browns' first-round pick in 2011, to that list.
