The Cleveland Browns made the move to get rid of Corey Coleman, but what were the biggest reasons to get rid of the third-year wide receiver?

Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey has made it obvious that he was not a fan of the players that the previous Browns regimes acquired.

Dorsey even made it a point after he was hired to say that the previous regime did not acquire real players. It could easily have been a reference about Sashi Brown acquiring many draft picks instead of players, but it could also have been a slight towards the actual players Brown acquired.

The trade of Corey Coleman was another instance of Dorsey moving on from a player that was acquired by Brown. It has almost been a theme since Dorsey took over as general manager.

The Browns traded Coleman to the Buffalo Bills for a 2020 seventh-round pick, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

For a former first-round pick, it was surprising that the Browns could not get more value. Granted Coleman has not played well on the field, but he is still a young player that teams could develop.

The move has created a lot of questions as to why the Browns would move on from a 24-year-old receiver for very little return.

Here’s a look at three biggest potential reasons why Cleveland moved on from Coleman.
