Browns trading former first-round pick Corey Coleman to Bills

The full details of the Cleveland Browns-Buffalo Bills' trade for former first-round pick Corey Coleman have been released.

Coleman, 24, was the 15th overall pick in 2016. 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.

Two hand injuries have kept Coleman out of 13 games through two seasons.

RBI hikes repo rate: On Wednesday, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) increased the repo rate by 25 basis points to 6.5 per cent. The Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee (MPC ) has voted unanimously to raise the Bank Rate from 0.5% to 0.75%.

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 Browns traded the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 National Football League draft for a flurry of picks and used their first selection at 15th overall on Coleman. Antonio Callaway is now the starting wide receiver opposite Jarvis Landry in two-wide sets, and Rashard Higgins worked exclusively with the first unit as the No. 3 wide receiver.

Buffalo entered training camp with Kelvin Benjamin as its top receiver and questions down the rest of its depth chart. Buffalo signed Jeremy Kerley in free agency and also used late-round picks to select Ray-Ray McCloud and Austin Proehl. "He's just coming in here to compete and earn".
