The full details of the Cleveland Browns-Buffalo Bills' trade for former first-round pick Corey Coleman have been released. The Browns originally had the No. 2 pick in the 2016 draft, but they traded it to Philadelphia, which took Carson Wentz and now is a Super Bowl champion.

He played just 19 games because of injuries and eventually symbolized the overall dysfunction of Cleveland's previous regime.

Coleman only fetched Cleveland a seventh-round pick at the 2020 draft.

As for Coleman, he probably needed a fresh start.

The former first-round pick of the Browns was acquired by the Bills for an undisclosed future draft pick.

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.

This trade is the second one the Bills have made over the a year ago that involved a first-round wide receiver.

Buffalo entered training camp with Kelvin Benjamin as its top receiver and questions down the rest of its depth chart. During his first two injury-plagued years in the National Football League, the 5-foot-11, 185-pound wideout has totaled just 56 receptions (131 targets) for 718 yards and five touchdowns in 19 games (18 starts).

"There's nothing guaranteed here", Beane said. "This is low risk, and we'll see what happens".

You can also add defensive tackle Phil Taylor, the Browns' first-round pick in 2011, to that list.
