Patriots agree to deals with wide receivers Coleman, Fowler

Patriots agree to deals with wide receivers Coleman, Fowler”

In addition to Coleman, the Patriots also reportedly signed wide receiver Bennie Fowler III, according to ESPN's Field Yates.

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. The team also waived receiver Chad Hansen, whom they had claimed on waivers on September 2 from the New York Jets.

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

Coleman, 24, is a veteran of two National Football League seasons with the Cleveland Browns (20016-17).

Bills first-year offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is a former Patriots assistant who is running a similar offense to New England's under Josh McDaniels. He finished with 33 receptions for 413 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games his rookie season, and 23 receptions for 305 yards and two touchdowns his sophomore campaign.

But Cordarrelle Patterson (16 plays) and Riley McCarron (15) rotated through and made little impact as the third and fourth receivers.

The Carolina Panthers selected Barner in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

Fowler, 27, has special teams experience. In 2017, the 26-year-old rushed 171 times for 751 yards and five touchdowns. He spent the last three seasons with the Eagles, where he totaled 310 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 71 attempts across 36 games (one start). He spent the previous four seasons with the Denver Broncos, and 2018 training camp with the Chicago Bears.
