Cleveland, OH (92.3 The Fan) – Corey Coleman’s stay in Buffalo was brief.

Coleman was released by the Bills Saturday as part of their roster cut down to 53.

Coleman, selected 15th overall in the 2016 NFL Draft by the Browns, was dealt by Cleveland on Aug. 5th for a 2020 seventh-round pick, which was not contingent upon him making the team meaning Cleveland still gets the pick.

Coleman appeared in 19 games and totaled 56 receptions for 718 yards and 5 touchdowns with the Browns over 2 seasons. Coleman was slowed by separate broken bones in his right hand that cost him 13 games and maturity issues off the field.

Coleman had 3 catches for 7 yards in 3 preseason games for the Bills.
