Report Patriots sign WR Bennie Fowler

Earlier in the offseason, Coleman was traded by the Cleveland Browns to the Buffalo Bills for a seventh-round draft pick.

The New England Patriots announced the signing of wide receivers Corey Coleman and Bennie Fowler on Tuesday.

The New England Patriots have reportedly found a potential solution to their punt returning issues in running back Kenjon Barner, who will be signed to their 53-man roster, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss. The Bills dropped him during roster cuts.

The 24-year-old Coleman was selected by the Browns with the 15th-overall selection in 2016.

He hasn't had the same success in the National Football League, recording 56 receptions for 718 yards and five touchdown catches in 19 games. New England didn't let the receiver get out of town.

The wildfire flared just weeks after a blaze in the Redding area killed eight people and burned about 1,100 homes. The US Forest Service said the blaze is now covering 38 square miles, up from 34 square miles on Thursday night.

The Pats have struggled to find reliable targets for quarterback Tom Brady this season at the receiver position, especially without Julian Edelman, who was suspended for the first four games of the season.

Fowler, 27, was signed by Denver as an undrafted free agent in 2014 and hauled in 56 receptions for 698 yards and five touchdowns in 45 games with the Broncos.

The Michigan State product spent his first three seasons in the National Football League with the Denver Broncos.

Barner spent 2017 with the Philadelphia Eagles and had 16 rushes for 57 yards and a touchdown.

Barner, 28, was a sixth-round pick by the Panthers in 2013 and returned to Carolina for training camp this year.
