Rumor: Browns may trade Corey Coleman, re-sign Terrelle Pryor
Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey has been very busy in recent days, and there is a good chance he is far from done. While he has two star receivers in Jarvis Landry and Josh Gordon (assuming he can stay out of trouble), he could use a good No. 3 receiver.
But wait—what about Corey Coleman? It appears the team may be ready to put him on the trade block and re-sign Terrelle Pryor.
Coleman, a 2016 first-round pick, had an incredible career with the Baylor Bears in college. But with the quarterback situation being subpar his first two seasons in the NFL, he has struggled to develop. Rather than wait and see if he can do it this season with a better quarterback, Dorsey may try to see what he can get for Coleman.
Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com thinks they could go after former Browns receiver Terrelle Pryor. In a recent post, she wrote:
“The Browns will pursue other receivers in free agency, including Terrelle Pryor. If they sign Pryor, he could play on the outside opposite Gordon, with Landry in the slot.”
After putting the time and effort into Pryor to convert him from a quarterback to wide receiver, it was a shame to see him leave the Browns last season. In 2016 he caught 77 of 140 passes thrown his way for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns.
The Washington Redskins gave him a shot last season, but he failed to catch on. He played in just nine games catching 20 of 37 passes for 240 yards and one touchdown.
The trio of Gordon, Landry and Pryor could be a formidable one with the right quarterback.
