Corey Coleman is getting another shot to play in the NFL.
New England Patriots head coach and general manager Bill Belichick signed the ex-Baylor Bears standout to a contract Monday. The news was reported by Josina Anderson and Field Yates of ESPN.
It’s been a rough few months for one of the best players to ever suit-up for Art Briles’ once-powerhouse Big 12 program.
Coleman was drafted with the No. 15 overall pick during the 2016 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns. But after injury issues and lack of performance, he was traded to the Buffalo Bills over the offseason for a minimal return.
A short while later, he was cut.
Sports Illustrated and The Monday Morning Quarterback analyst Andy Benoit previously reported that several Browns’ coaches blamed Baylor’s old coaching staff for Coleman’s lack of NFL success.
