The NFL handed Coleman a six-game suspension Tuesday for a violation of the league's performance-enhancing drugs policy , Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. The 2016 first-round pick -- who was cut from the Giants' practice squad in November -- last saw regular-season action in 2018. Coleman will look to catch on as a depth wideout option once his suspension is complete.
Coleman was released from the Giants' practice squad Tuesday. The 26-year-old signed to the practice squad in late October but is in search of a new team after spending about a month in New York. Coleman hasn't seen game action since appearing in eight games for the Giants in 2018.
The Giants signed Coleman to the practice squad Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports. Coleman played eight games with the Giants back in 2018 before tearing his ACL, and he hasn't played in an NFL game since. The 2016 first-round pick signed with the Giants back in March and was cut before the 2020 season began, but he'll get another chance in New York. The Giants have five wide receivers on the active roster, but C.J. Board (concussion) may not be ready for Week 8. Coleman could add depth if that's the case.
The Giants brought Coleman in for a workout Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Coleman failed to make the Giants out of training camp, but with C.J. Board (concussion) dealing with injury, they elected to see if Coleman was worth another shot. The 2016 first-round pick has had a tough career since entering the league from Baylor, as he's suited up in just 27 games in his career, last season in the league when he suffered a torn ACL in training camp in 2018.
Coleman was let go by the Giants on Sunday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. The Giants claimed a few players off waviers Sunday, including receiver Damion Ratley, so Coleman was one of the players needed to make room. The 2016 first-round pick was coming off a torn ACL he suffered in Week 17 of the 2018 season but failed to make the roster. He'll likely remain with the team on the practice squad or look for an opportunity elsewhere around the league as a depth receiver.
