Steelers Trade Coates to Browns

The Steelers have quite the conundrum at receiver, but they just made their choices a bit easier. 

The Steelers traded Sammie Coates to the Cleveland Browns for the Browns 6th round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Coates, a 3rd round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, had quite a bit of an inconsistent career with the Steelers. He was given ample opportunity last season with Martavis Bryant sitting the entire season under suspension. Coates showed some signs of strong play early on, but Coates dealt with multiple fractured fingers throughout the year. 

On the surface, it looks like the Steelers see potential in other receivers on the roster, as they’re trying to cut their roster down to 53 men, which they have until 4:00 pm on Saturday to do so. Coates will get a fresh start in Cleveland, being part of a receiver group not nearly as deep or talented.
