The teams did not disclose what the Bills sent to the Browns, but ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the compensation Monday morning. 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.

Before Corey Coleman arrives at St. John Fisher, he must pass a physical in Buffalo to complete the trade with Cleveland.

A seventh-round draft choice is a pretty low return for a player the Browns selected with the 15th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

The Bills made a significant move concerning their wide receiving corps Sunday.

"He's not going to automatically get anything, he's going to have to come in here and compete and that's what I told him".

Joe Anzaldua, the city's medical director and health authority, urges residents to take precautions to reduce West Nile exposure. Around eight in 10 infected people don't experience symptoms, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"It hadn't worked out in Cleveland probably the way he thought when he was drafted or the way they thought when they drafted him in the first round", Bills general manager Brandon Beane said of Coleman.

Buffalo entered training camp with Kelvin Benjamin as its top receiver and questions down the rest of its depth chart.

Coleman has been rumored to be on the trade block for quite some time now.

Coleman caught 56 passes for 718 yards and five touchdowns in 19 career games with the Browns. They also picked up some cold, hard cash.

Two hand injuries have kept Coleman out of 13 games through two seasons. Zay Jones, a high draft pick in 2017, is still recovering from surgery and hasn't taken part in camp just yet.
