The Giants signed Coleman off their practice squad Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Following his release from New England, Coleman worked out with the Buccaneers and Jets before eventually becoming a member of the Giants' practice squad. He'll now join his fourth active roster in a span of less than three months, taking the roster spot of Damon Harrison, who was traded to Detroit on Wednesday. It will remain an uphill battle to become fantasy relevant with the likes of Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard on the New York roster, but Coleman may get his first chance if given an active status Week 8 against Washington.
The Giants signed Coleman to their practice squad Thursday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Coleman's addition comes after he apparently impressed team brass during a workout Wednesday. While he won't be included on the Giants' 53-man roster, Coleman could eventually push for a depth role in the New York receiving corps -- if he isn't scooped up by another team -- once he gets acclimated with coach Pat Shurmur's offensive system. Coleman's most recent stint came with New England in September, but he was waived without ever suiting up in a game.
Coleman worked out with the Giants on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Coleman has been evaluated by both occupants of MetLife Stadium this week, as the Giants and Jets have seen their wideout depth gutted by injuries. The 2016 first-round pick is practice-squad eligible, meaning an organization can ink him for a much lower cost and see if he can acclimate to the offensive system. Whether or not he lands on a 53-man roster remains to be seen, but Coleman has yet to log an offensive snap with any team this season.
Coleman is scheduled for a workout with the Jets on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. It's been a precipitous fall for the 2016 first-round pick of the Browns. Over the last two and a half months, Coleman was traded to Buffalo, waived at the end of the preseason, signed with the Patriots, waived again, became a member of New England's practice squad and eventually jettisoned for good by the Pats on Sept. 29. The Jets have a banged-up receiving corps at the moment -- Quincy Enunwa has a high-ankle sprain, Terrelle Pryor pulled his groin Sunday, and Charone Peake has missed the last three games with a hamstring injury -- but Coleman has competition in the form of Rishard Matthews for a potential roster spot.
Coach Bill Belichick noted that Coleman, who is now a member of the Patriots' practice squad, is a talented player that the team wants to keep working with, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports. Normally we don't get too fired up about practice squad wideouts who have been cut twice in a month, but as the No. 15 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Coleman does have some untapped upside. If he practices well, he's a candidate to be promoted to the Patriots' active roster and could conceivably make a splash before the end of the season.
