The Giants signed wide receiver Corey Coleman to the practice squad, a source tells Dan Duggan of The Athletic (on Twitter). Coleman worked out for the Giants on Wednesday and agreed to join the reserve team on Thursday morning.
Coleman will offer the Giants some extra insurance after the club lost Cody Latimer to injury. Bennie Fowler was signed to the main roster this week to fill in for his fellow ex-Bronco, but Coleman will be kept nearby if the Giants want to make any more tweaks to the receiver group.
The deal marks Coleman’s fourth team of 2018. The former first-round pick couldn’t catch on with the Bills after being shipped over by the Browns, and he didn’t make much of an impression on the Patriots, but he hopes to have an easier path to the field with the G-Men.
Coleman, the No. 15 overall pick in the 2016 draft, has yet to outperform his modest rookie season. In that year, he had 33 receptions for 413 yards and three touchdowns. In 2017, he had just 23 catches for 305 yards with 2 TDs, and he’s still waiting to make his 2018 debut.
