Coleman, 26, 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 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 waived soon after and eventually signed on to the Giants’ practice squad.

Coleman was eventually promoted to the active roster and returned to the Giants on a one-year, restricted tender. He had re-signed with the team during this offseason before being released and later re-signed to the practice squad. 

In 2018, Coleman appeared in eight games for the Giants and caught five passes for 71 yards receiving to go along with five yards rushing. He also contributed 598 kick return yards and 19 punt return yards.
