Report: Cardinals work out former first-round pick WR Corey Coleman
The Arizona Cardinals are reportedly still looking around at more options for their wide receiver group.
ESPN’s Field Yates reported Friday the Cardinals worked out wide receiver Corey Coleman.
In HBO’s “Hard Knocks” documentary series profiling the Cleveland Browns, Coleman was shown being upset at not receiving first-team reps and having a conversation with head coach Hue Jackson regarding the matter. On Aug. 5, Coleman was traded to the Buffalo Bills for a 2020 seventh-round pick.
Coleman wouldn’t last long in Buffalo, failing to make the roster and being cut on Sept. 1.
In the 2016 NFL Draft, Coleman was the No. 15 overall selection by the Browns after racking up 74 catches for 1,363 yards and 20 touchdowns in his junior season at Baylor.
In his rookie year, Coleman broke his hand early in the season and finished 33 receptions for 413 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games.
Last season, he broke the same hand two games into the year and missed eight weeks. Hid production once again underwhelmed, regressing to 23 catches for 305 yards and two touchdowns.
The Cardinals did not have a wide receiver stand out beyond Larry Fitzgerald heading into the regular season. Former Cowboy Brice Butler was expected to battle for the No. 2 job, but he dealt with an injury in the preseason and didn’t make the final roster. Second-year receiver Chad Williams is listed on the team’s unofficial depth chart as the team’s other starting wide receiver. The Cardinals elected to have only five wideouts on the final roster.
