Giants Re-Sign RFA WR Corey Coleman

The New York Giants officially re-signed Corey Coleman to a one-year restricted contract for the 2019 season on Monday. 

Coleman received an original round tender which will cost the Giants $2.025 million for the 2019 season. 

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. 

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.
