Corey Coleman has been traded by the Cleveland Browns and released by the Buffalo Bills this offseason. The 2016 first-round pick is running out of chances.

However, it looks like Coleman is still drawing some interest on the open market. The New England Patriots, who could stand to upgrade their receiving corps, reportedly worked out Coleman today.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Coleman spent today in New England and has a visit scheduled tomorrow with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Crazy how Coleman will go from two of the worst teams in the league (Cleveland and Buffalo) to at least getting looks from both of last year's Super Bowl participants. That's the nature of the NFL though.

Coleman came out of Baylor with the reputation as a player with top-flight speed. Cleveland took him before Will Fuller V, Michael Thomas and Sterling Shepard, among others.

Injuries limited Coleman's tenure with the Browns. He played in only 19 games over two seasons.

Coleman was traded to the Bills in August for a 2020 seventh-round pick. Buffalo released him on September 1.

Now, he'll have to see if he can earn another shot at reviving his career.
