Browns reportedly not done trading big-name players

When the Cleveland Browns dealt first-round bust Corey Coleman to the Buffalo Bills this past weekend, it seemed to be an isolated move.

Coleman failed to live up to expectations in two seasons with the Browns, compiling just 718 yards with a 43 percent catch rate. There were also seemingly issues behind the scenes for the former Baylor standout.

Despite the thought that Coleman’s situation might have been an exception to the rule, NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Browns themselves might not be done dealing name players added by the previous regime.

“Remember, this was a regime with John Dorsey, the general manager, a lot of their players were kind of up on the trading block, a lot of the previous regime’s players — some disappointing players, frankly — were available for trade,” Rapoport reported. “This is not the last time. We’re going to see a potential former big-name Brown shipped to someone else for draft compensation.”

Given that this is GM John Dorsey’s first summer as Cleveland’s chief decision maker, pretty much anyone selected prior to the 2018 NFL Draft, outside of a handful of players, could be dealt.

That includes offensive tackle Shon Coleman, who already lost his starting job during camp. Another possibility is second-year tight end David Njoku. The former first-round pick has had a case of the dropsies thus far in camp.

Looking at the defense, linebackers Jamie Collins and Carl Nassib could also be in the mix. Both were brought on by the failed previous regime.

Though, don’t expect Josh Gordon to be bandied about in trade talks. He’s away from the team attending to personal matters, but seems to have the full support of the Browns’ organization.
