The Buffalo Bills are working to supply their quarterbacks with more weapons, as ESPN's Adam Schefter reports they pulled off a trade with the Cleveland Browns to acquire former first-round pick, Corey Coleman.

Coleman had a promising start with the Browns, compiling a two-touchdown game against the Ravens in just his second game as a pro, but injuries and then a lack of productivity when he was on the field marred his time as a Brown.

The former first-round pick of the Browns was acquired by the Bills for an undisclosed future draft pick.

Coleman wasn't at practice Monday, but the team hopes to have him Tuesday.

Other fires raging in the state include the Mendocino Complex, comprised of two blazes: the River Fire and the Ranch Fire. California's current year-round fire season is producing more extreme and destructive blazes than in the past.

Entering the third year of his four-year rookie contract, Coleman recently told ClevelandBrowns.com that he knew the 2018 season would have to be an important one for him. "I feel like it's important".

In 2016, Corey Coleman was at the peak of his football career.

Coleman vaulted to the top of the 2016 National Football League draft due to an ultra-productive college career at Baylor that saw him win the Biletnikoff award his senior season. Known for his breakaway speed, the 5-foot-11, 185-pound Coleman had just eight 20-yard receptions and three 40-yard catches in his two seasons with the Browns. They haven't decided whether he'll play on Thursday's preseason opener against the Carolina Panthers. The Browns originally had the No. 2 pick in the 2016 draft, but they traded it to Philadelphia, which took Carson Wentz and now is a Super Bowl champion.
