Patriots add WRs Coleman, Fowler

Corey Coleman didn't want to be with the Cleveland Browns when he believed he wouldn't be a big part of the offense, so he asked for a trade.

And the wide receiver carousel keeps spinning in New England.

Coleman was drafted by the Browns with the No. 15 pick in 2016 and spent the first two seasons of his career with them. The Browns traded him to the Bills in August, but he didn't even survive Buffalo's final roster cuts and was released on September 1.

Hopefully, Coleman realizes that he's nowhere near the top of the depth chart upon his arrival in New England.

Trump lies about Obama
He said, Trump says he is "going to bring all these jobs back, well, how exactly are you going to do that?" Earlier in the day, Trump made the claim on Twitter.

But he was targeted 131 times in those games, meaning he caught just 43 percent of the passes thrown his way.

According to ESPN's Field Yates, the New England Patriots are signing Fowler, a former Denver Bronco, on what's been a busy transaction Tuesday in Foxborough.

Coleman could potentially make his Patriots debut in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Even for a receiver group in need of bodies, it's still for players who will be behind Chris Hogan, Dorsett, and Patterson to start. With Tom Brady's favorite target, Julian Edelman, suspended for the first four games of the season following a PED violation, New England looked to other options, including veterans Kenny Britt and Eric Decker. Like Coleman, Fowler was in for a workout Monday. As noted by Providence Journal reporter Mark Daniels, only Edelman is now signed beyond this season, so if Coleman can show signs, maybe he'll be brought back next year. According to 247 sports he played 227 special teams snaps in 2017.
