As for Coleman, he probably needed a fresh start.

Sunday night, it was announced that the Browns were trading the former top NFL Draft pick.

The Buffalo Bills are working to supply their quarterbacks with more weapons, as ESPN's Adam Schefter reports they pulled off a trade with the Cleveland Browns to acquire former first-round pick, Corey Coleman. The Browns selected the Baylor product with the No. 15 pick in the 2016 draft.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport notes the move frees up the guaranteed portion of Coleman's 2018 and '19 salaries from escrow. "You can turn on the clips, he makes a lot of good plays", he added. "He's not going to automatically get anything. He's gotta come in here and compete".

A team of 188 specialist Australian and New Zealand firefighters are also on the ground in California to help battle the blazes. High temperatures, low humidity and afternoon winds along with low fuel moistures are aiding large fire growth, officials said.

The Bills could've waited and hoped Coleman got cut, but there are no guarantees with that, Beane felt there's no better time than present, "I just thought now was the right opportunity to get him in here to start learning this offense as opposed to waiting any longer".

The Bills lack proven depth at receiver behind starter Kelvin Benjamin.

In place of Jones through the first week of training camp, the Bills rotated a group of receivers with the first team, including Andre Holmes, Malachi Dupre, Brandon Reilly and undrafted rookie Robert Foster. 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).
