New Browns general manager John Dorsey inherited a boatload of picks and a laundry list of players from the former regime.
He happily used the picks, but the players are a different story.
"Remember, this was a regime with John Dorsey, the general manager, a lot of their players were kind of up on the trading block, a lot of the previous regime's players -- some disappointing players, frankly -- were available for trade," NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport said during Tuesday's edition of Inside Training Camp Live.
"This is not the last time," Rapoport added, "we're going to see a potential former big-name Brown shipped to someone else for draft compensation."
Coleman's exodus came after Dorsey waved farewell to former first-round defensive lineman Danny Shelton (picked two regimes ago) and second-round quarterback DeShone Kizer. The general manager also snail-mailed Cody Kessler to the Jaguars for a conditional 2019 seventh-round pick and sent cornerback Jason McCourty to New England.
Scanning the roster, it's fair to wonder which players might be next. Pass-rusher Carl Nassib, a 2016 third-rounder, has just 5.5 sacks over two seasons and isn't about to start with Myles Garrett and Emmanuel Ogbah on the field. The addition of traded-for Mychal Kendricks also gives the Browns a crowded house at linebacker. Third-round tackle Shon Coleman, meanwhile, has already played himself out of a job.
The Corey Coleman swap should tell us something else: Dorsey isn't about to keep a player in-house that doesn't fit his image of the Browns. It's fair to critique the return -- a measly seventh-rounder -- but Cleveland tired of the oft-injured receiver and, as NFL Network's Mike Garafolo noted, didn't want him taking "reps away from some other guys."
