PITTSFORD, N.Y. -- Corey Coleman's looking to show a former first round pick is more valuable than the seventh rounder he was traded for, just two seasons later.
"Every day I wake up, I feel I have something to prove. It's a huge opportunity for me and I'm blessed to be here and I'm ready to rock with the Buffalo Bills," Coleman said.
Injuries held Coleman to just 19 games in two seasons with the Cleveland Browns, with limited production when on the field.
"A lot of things don't work out the way you want them to work out. I got much respect for my teammates. Those guys in that locker room in Cleveland are top-notch guys. I respect them, and we had a great fan base in Cleveland, too, and I'm going to leave it at that."
Coleman didn't leave it at that.
"It's a business at the end of the day. Most important, you have to do what's best for you and that's the main thing. That's with football and anything in life."
Upgrading at wide receiver was important to the Bills, with Head Coach Sean McDermott echoing General Manager Brandon Beane in referencing Coleman's speed as the biggest draw, with trade talks dating back to the spring.
"It feels good to be wanted. I don't want to let them down. They have their trust in me and I really don't want to let them down and make them right, so I'm going to work my tail off to come here and do everything I need to do."
