Giants Place WR Corey Coleman On IR, Waive K Joey Slye

According to Pat Leonard, the Giants have placed WR Corey Coleman on injured reserve and waived K Joey Slye

Coleman suffered a torn ACL during Thursday’s practice this week, so this was expected. They make room for WRs T.J. Jones and Amba Etta-Tawo on the 90-man roster. 

Coleman, 24, is a former first-round pick of the Browns back in 2016. He was in the third year of his four-year, $11.654 million contract and set to make base salaries of $1.5 million and $2 million over the next two years of the agreement when he was traded to the Bills for a 2020 seventh-round pick.

Unfortunately, the Bills elected to waive him coming out of the preseason. Coleman signed on with the Patriots but was just cut loose shortly after and signed to their practice squad.

New England elected to cut Coleman from their practice squad after 10 days and he caught on with the Giants’ practice squad and was eventually promoted to the active roster. 

Coleman returned to the Giants this offseason on a one-year, restricted tender. 

In 2018, Coleman appeared in eight games for the Giants and recorded five receptions for 71 yards receiving (14.2 YPC) and no touchdowns to go along with 598 kickoff return yards.
