Patriots Sign Receivers Coleman & Fowler
Wednesday, September 12, 2018
The signings come after the Patriots played their season opener with just four wide receivers on the roster, including Riley McCarron, who was promoted from the practice squad.
New England has since waived McCarron after he fumbled a punt return late in the game that resulted in a Houston touchdown.
Coleman is a former first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2016.
He played two seasons for the Browns, hauling in 56 passes for 718 yards and five touchdowns.
Last month, Coleman was traded to the Bills, but did not make the cut.
Fowler signed with the Denver Broncos in 2015 as an undrafted free agent and would spend the next three seasons there.
While there, he racked up 56 catches for 698 yards and five touchdowns.
Last spring, he signed as a free agent with the Chicago Bears, but was cut.
