Corey Coleman joins Patriots’ practice squad

Corey Coleman is not done in New England yet.

The Patriots signed the receiver to their practice squad Wednesday after releasing him from their 53-player roster earlier this week after trading for Josh Gordon.

The Browns made Coleman the 15th overall pick in 2016.

He made 56 receptions for 718 yards and five touchdowns in his two seasons in Cleveland before the Browns sent him to Buffalo in a trade. The Bills cut him out of the preseason, and he signed with the Patriots.

Now, Coleman is attempting to save his career on the Patriots’ practice squad.

  1. Insurance for Gordon inevitably going AWOL?

    In any case, it’s hard to fathom how a guy could be drafted 15 overall (after being ranked the #1 WR prospect in that class) and then be barely hanging onto an NFL PC job by dental floss 2 years later.

  2. Not surprising. Gives him more time to learn the playbook and works as a backup plan in case Gordon doesn’t cut it.

  3. Patriots Do well with these type of players. They realize they have nothing to lose so why not cheat? They get banned from league no big deal since no one wants him anyway. He doesn’t get caught then make millions. I will say the patriots are smart about their cheating. And of course when Goodell and Kraft hang out together that helps too.

    Hey look, it’s Charlie Browns teacher once again!!!!
    Whaaaaah whaaaaaah whaaaaah whaaaaah…..LOL
    THE PATRIOTS OWN YOU!!!…. but don’t feel too bad about it, you’re just one of MANY!!!!

  6. “Patriots Do well with these type of players. They realize they have nothing to lose so why not cheat? ”

    So the Pats make legal, league approved moves in first releasing this guy and then re-signing him to the practice squad, following proper league procedures and you somehow think this is “cheating” to do so?

    You’re delusional.

  7. The Patriots don’t care who you are. Clean slate, you have to earn your place. Look at the scrubs they scrounged, some of them earned SB bowl rings while some of the big name elites still haven’t or retired without accomplishing their dreams. It’s the team that give better chance to players to succeed by capitalizing on their aptitudes.

    yeah I don’t believe the Patriots exactly “own” the Dolphins. I believe last time they played the Dolphins back up qb outplayed and Gase outsmarted Belichick. I may of even turned the game off in the 3rd because it was so boring watching the beat down. Probably embarrassing for the patriot fans.

    No, not so much. We actually don’t give 5 seconds thought to the Dolphins since they haven’t won anything meaningful since the 1970’s.

  12. But what about fun and all that nonsense?

    I have no idea if this guy is a good person or a good player but the fact he’s willing to setup camp in a structured environment that rewards doing things the right way bodes well. I’m rooting for him.

    Yawn. Coleman was a FA (multiple times now). Every team had a chance to “cheat” just like the Pats. In fact, any team can “cheat” by signing him off their practice squad.
