Giants Tender Former First-Round Pick WR Corey Coleman

Corey Coleman bounced around with not one, not two, but a total of four teams in 2018, but finally it appears he’s found a home with the New York Giants.

If you look at any online sportsbooks the Giants need help in terms of scoring points, and with that the team has decided to keep Coleman around, as they used an original-round tender on the wide receiver as a restricted free agent, a source confirmed to Newsday.

The move means that Coleman will have a non-guaranteed salary of $2.025 million in the 2019 season. The Giants are hoping for a lot more for the former Cleveland Browns first-round pick.

It’s not a 100 percent for sure that Coleman will be with the Giants, but it’s hard to think that any other team is going to chat with him based on what it could cost them with what the Giants placed on him as a restricted free agent.

If Coleman does not play for the Giants in 2019, the G-Men would receive a pick from the original round that Coleman was selected in if he signs elsewhere.

In this case, that would be a first rounder since Coleman was initially selected there by the Browns. This means you can forget Coleman going anywhere.

The former first-round pick traded to the Bills from Cleveland during camp, and then signed with the Patriots before he was picked up by the Giants in midseason.

He had five catches for 71 yards in eight games for the Giants and also averaged 26 yards on 23 kickoff returns. The Giants must feel that he’s going to have a big 2019, otherwise it’s a rather odd move for the team if they don’t think he can’t succeed.
