PITTSFORD White Jordan Mills Jerseys , N.Y. (AP) — Before making the five-hour drive from Cleveland to Buffalo’s training camp, receiver Corey Coleman was advised to leave behind the baggage of his two seasons with the Browns.The injuries, dropped passes, and constant reminders of how Coleman failed to play to the Browns’ first-round draft-pick expectations can all be set aside.The Bills are offering him a clean slate.“We all go through things in life that don’t go our way,” Bills general manager Brandon Beane said Monday, a day after acquiring Coleman in a trade. “I don’t know all what went right or wrong for Corey in Cleveland. But we view it as a fresh start here to earn and compete.”For the relatively small price of a 2020 seventh-round draft pick, Beane took what he called a “low-risk” gamble in a bid to add breakaway speed and play-making potential to one of his team’s most unsettled positions.In Cleveland, first-year GM John Dorsey parted ways with a player who came to symbolize the overall dysfunction of the Browns’ previous regime.By trading down in the draft order to select Coleman with the 15th pick in the 2016 draft, the Browns passed on an opportunity to choose eventual Philadelphia Eagles starting quarterback Carson Wentz.Hand injuries limited Coleman to playing just 19 games, during which he caught 56 of the 131 passes thrown in his direction for 718 yards and five touchdowns. That was a significant drop in production for a player who scored an NCAA-leading 20 touchdowns receiving and led the Big 12 with 1,363 yards receiving at Baylor in 2015.Coleman’s tenure in Cleveland will be best remembered for his drop late in the fourth quarter in last season’s finale at Pittsburgh that sealed the Browns’ 0-16 finish.None of that now matters in Buffalo, where the Bills lack established depth at receiver behind starter Kelvin Benjamin.Including Benjamin, acquired in a mid-season trade from Carolina, Buffalo’s four returning receivers combined for 57 catches for 681 yards and six touchdowns last season. Jeremy Kerley Jordan Mills Jerseys 2019 , an eighth-year player, was the team’s most notable offseason free-agent addition, while the Bills also used two late-round draft picks to select Ray-Ray McCloud III and Austin Proehl.Beane revisited previous discussions he had with the Browns regarding Coleman, and elected to make the trade two weeks into training camp.“I just thought now was the opportunity to get him in here to start learning this offense versus waiting any longer,” he said.Nothing, however, is guaranteed.“He’s not going to automatically get anything,” Beane said. “He’s got to come here and compete. That’s what I told him on the phone last night.”Pending a physical, Coleman is expected to make his practice debut Tuesday. It’s too early to determine whether he’ll play in Buffalo’s preseason-opener against Carolina on Thursday.Kerley welcomed the added competition Coleman brings to the Bills.“Here, it’s a better opportunity for him to compete. It’s a better opportunity for everyone. Competition is good,” Kerley said. “It’s going to definitely help us boost up a little bit.”As for Coleman’s past, Kerley said the best advice is to forget it.“Whatever happened in Cleveland, that’s over with,” Kerley said. “You’re in a different place White Lorenzo Alexander Jerseys , a different atmosphere, different coaches, different situation. You kind of get to redeem yourself.”The trade caught Coleman’s now-former teammate, receiver Jarvis Landry, by surprise.The three-time Pro Bowler, who came to Cleveland in a March trade from Miami, mentored Coleman during their few months together. Landry convinced the 24-year-old to change his diet and schooled him on what it takes to succeed.“Just continue to work hard, continue to grind at it,” said Landry, who spoke to Coleman after the trade became official. “I think he’s got a great grasp of that. And who knows, maybe in Buffalo that continues to carry over, and he has a hell of a career.”Coleman also had issues off the field.He was named in a police report regarding an alleged felonious assault last year, but never charged. He was also sent home from the Browns’ trip to Houston for missing curfew while he was injured.The Bills were assured Coleman doesn’t face possible NFL disciplinary action resulting from the alleged assault. The mother of LeSean McCoy’s young son said in a court filing Tuesday that she agreed to defend the Buffalo Bills running back against an allegation that he abused the boy even though she said she knew the accusation was true.In a three-page document filed in Fulton County State Court in Georgia, Stephanie Maisonet said she reluctantly agreed to the deal in exchange for McCoy offering to drop a custody case and allow her to enroll their 6-year-old son in a school in Miami.Maisonet said she previously filed a report with child services — she did not say where or when — after her son would come home bruised and crying after visiting McCoy. She also included a picture of her son with bruises on his chin in the filing.“I regret ever agreeing to help LeShawn McCoy in this case Lorenzo Alexander Jerseys 2019 ,” Maisonet said in the court document that misspelled McCoy’s first name. “I feel like I am sending our son to a monster every two weeks. LeShawn McCoy should be held accountable for his actions, regardless of his career choice or his income.”McCoy responded by calling Maisonet’s allegations “provably false, outrageously inaccurate and offensive,” in a statement posted on his Twitter account.“I have a loving and close knit relationship with my son. That young boy is my whole life,” McCoy wrote. “With a custody case coming in November, I can see why these false allegations are surfacing.”Maisonet’s allegations were added to a lawsuit filed last month by McCoy’s ex-girlfriend. Delicia Cordon alleges McCoy failed to protect her after she was bloodied, beaten and had $133,000 worth of jewelry stolen by an intruder at a home the running back owns in Milton, just outside Atlanta.Cordon also said McCoy would “often brutally beat his dog,” and would “aggressively, physically discipline and beat his young son.”Last week, McCoy’s lawyers asked a judge to throw out the lawsuit because there was no basis to hold him responsible for Cordon being hurt. They also argued the lawsuit was filled with unrelated false, salacious allegations that were meant to embarrass McCoy and cast him in a bad light.The Bills have backed McCoy, with general manager Brandon Beane previously saying no evidence has come to light to change McCoy’s status with the team. The 30-year-old is playing in his 10th NFL season and fourth with Buffalo after being acquired in a trade with Philadelphia.He led the NFL in yards rushing in 2013.Maisonet said a note posted on her Instagram account saying the allegations of abuse against McCoy were false was written by McCoy’s friend White Ramon Humber Jerseys , Tamarcus Porter, who is a co-defendant in the lawsuit. She said she provided Porter the password to her account.Cordon did not accuse McCoy of playing a role in the attack, which occurred in the early morning hours of July 10.Maisonet alleged that McCoy may have been involved, accusing him of “potentially orchestrating this heinous incident.”On July 9, she said, she overheard McCoy speaking to someone on the phone and saying, “I need to get this (person) out of my house.”Maisonet questioned the timing of McCoy’s offer, which she said came after the home invasion.“I found this to be odd because he has been fighting me so hard against that during our custody battle,” Maisonet said. “Also, if he did not have any involvement in the home invasion, there is no need to make such an extreme offer.”
