The Giants re-signed Coleman on Monday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Coleman's pro career has been star-crossed since he was a first-round pick of the Browns in 2016. Overall, he's appeared in just 27 games to date and last played Week 17 of the 2018 season, the result of a torn ACL at the start of training camp last July. There's room to move up the WR depth chart with the Giants behind the top trio of Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate and Darius Slayton, but Coleman likely is destined to compete for the No. 1 kick returner job with Slayton and cornerback Corey Ballentine this offseason.
Coleman (knee) is expected to have multiple suitors in free agency according to an NFL executive, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Coleman, a free agent this offseason after tearing his ACL seven months ago, has been medically cleared by doctors and is expected to be a low-risk, high-reward signing for teams in need of depth at wide receiver. The 2016 first-round pick likely won't warrant more than a minimum-level contract given his injury history and relative lack of consistent success, but Coleman's combination of speed and youth (just 25 years old) will likely be enough to temp an NFL team in the near future.
Coleman (knee) has resumed running and is participating in rehab activities, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports. Coleman is rehabbing a torn ACL suffered during training camp in July. It's encouraging to see the 2016 first-round pick, who is set to become a free agent this offseason, having already progressed enough in his recovery to resume running. Coleman is working to return to full health in time for the 2020 season.
The Giants placed Coleman (knee-ACL) on injured reserve Saturday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Coleman tore his ACL during training camp practice earlier this week, and now lands on season-ending IR. With Sterling Shepard (thumb) battling injury and Golden Tate (suspension) appealing a four-game ban, Coleman's absence is a legitimate blow to New York's receiving corps. The 2016 first-round pick will turn his attention toward getting fully healthy for 2020.
Coleman suffered a torn ACL during Thursday's practice, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Fellow Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard suffered a broken thumb during the same session, leaving the team with shaky wideout depth after just two days of practice. With Coleman now set to miss the entire season, the competition for the No. 3 receiver job is whittled down to Cody Latimer, Bennie Fowler, Darius Slayton (hamstring) and Russell Shepard. The Giants surely will take a look at the free-agent market and also may place some calls about trades.
