WR Sammie Coates traded to Browns for 7th-round pick

Browns trade for Steelers WR Sammie Coates

The Browns have acquired wide receiver Sammie Coates along with a seventh round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Back in 2015 Coates was a third-round pick by Pittsburgh, and has appeared in 20 games with five starts. The Browns had originally acquired the sixth-round pick from the Steelers for cornerback Justin Gilbert in a September 3, 2016 trade. He recorded 21 receptions for 435 yards and two touchdowns. Combined, Ricardo Louis and Rasharad Higgins had six receptions for 47 yards.

During his two seasons in Pittsburgh, Coates caught 22 passes for 446 yards and two touchdowns.

Dustin Pedroia expected back for Red Sox on Friday
During the past month, the Yankees have been atop the wild-card pile but played as if they belonged at the bottom. Hicks' throw occurred just before the Red Sox scored their first run on a ground ball by Bogaerts.

Tight end David Johnson, cornerback Senquez Golson and sixth-round draft pick Colin Holba were among the players cut by the Steelers on Saturday as they got down to the 53-man roster. While his offensive playing time decreased, Coates kept up with his special-teams duties, getting on the field for 116 plays in his nine games after his first broken finger. He'd had surgery to take care of his groin injury after the season ended.

The underlining portion of this trade shows the confidence that the Steelers have in Martavis Bryant, who was recently reinstated by the NFL.
