The New England Patriots are expected to sign running back Kenjon Barner, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss. Barner could also step in as a punt returner after Riley McCarron was cut this week. The team also waived receiver Chad Hansen, whom they had claimed on waivers on September 2 from the New York Jets.

They're taking a flyer on former Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills wideout Corey Coleman, as first reported by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network on Twitter.

Coleman visited with the Patriots on Monday and was scheduled to take a trip to Philadelphia Tuesday.

Coleman entered the National Football League as a 2016 first-round draft choice of the Cleveland Browns, but never reached the expectations that come with being selected with the No. 15 pick.

Coleman, 24, played in 19 games with the Browns but injuries became a detriment.

New England began the season with Julian Edelman suspended.

The Michigan State product spent his first three seasons in the National Football League with the Denver Broncos. Fowler went undrafted in 2014 but spent four seasons with the Denver Broncos, catching 56 passes for 698 yards and five touchdowns in 45 games. Barner has appeared in 44 regular-season games with one start and totaled 77 rushing attempts for 317 yards with three touchdowns and 21 receptions for 127 yards.

Barner, 28, was a sixth-round pick by the Panthers in 2013 and returned to Carolina for training camp this year. In 2017, the 26-year-old rushed 171 times for 751 yards and five touchdowns.
