Cleveland has traded former first-round wide receiver Corey Coleman to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for an undisclosed future draft pick, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Coleman was travelling to the Bills' training camp facility and must pass a physical.

Coleman played in nine games last season for the Browns, making eight starts.

Coleman, 24, was the Browns' No. 15 overall pick in 2016.

That means the annual deficit would likely surpass last year's $552 billion total trade gap and hit the highest level since 2008. Most economists predict the uptick in the trade gap will increase over the rest of the year , Marketwatch reports.

The Bills could've waited and hoped Coleman got cut, but there are no guarantees with that, Beane felt there's no better time than present, "I just thought now was the right opportunity to get him in here to start learning this offense as opposed to waiting any longer". He was also sent home from the Browns' trip to Houston for missing curfew while he was injured.

For his career, Coleman has 56 receptions for just over 700 yards and five touchdowns. "This is low risk, and we'll see what happens".

By trading the No. 2 pick to the Philadelphia Eagles, the Browns passed on the chance to select Carson Wentz, a 6-foot-6, 235-pound quarterback whom chief strategy officer Paul DePodesta felt that despite being a two-year starter for National Championship teams at North Dakota State, did not have the potential to be a top-20 NFL quarterback. In March, Cleveland acquired quarterback Tyrod Taylor from Buffalo.
