The Buffalo Bills had plenty of news surrounding the wide receivers over the weekend. That and more in today’s edition of The Morning Charge.

The Buffalo Bills decided to spice up the final Sunday without football by making yet another trade with the Cleveland Browns.

The Bills added wide receiver Corey Coleman in exchange for what is reportedly a late-round pick. Coleman is a former first-round selection of the Browns who seemingly lost favor after only two seasons in town.

He joins a wide receiving corps with Kelvin Benjamin currently in the No. 1 spot. Speaking of Benjamin, he recently had some unsavory things to say about his time in Carolina.

His comments were just odd and come before the Bills and Panthers are set to square off in preseason action this Thursday. The situation was addressed by Sean McDermott and it has to be annoying as a coach to have to remind your top receiver not to say dumb things to the media.

Benjamin made these comments and the Bills added a new receiver days later. Coincidence? I think so in this case.

In other receiver news, the Bills released Quan Bray to clear space for Coleman.

All this and more in today’s edition of The Morning Charge.

Our initial look at the trade right after it was announced. The Bills are going for potential with this move. Coleman has dealt with a broken hand but he also had to wade through two horrible seasons in Cleveland in which the team went 1-31. Maybe a change of scenery will help him out.

Another look at the Coleman trade. Coleman is a former first-round pick so hopefully he can finally be the player he was drafted to be.

A look at the reaction to some of Kelvin Benjamin’s comments from over the weekend. Not a great way to campaign for an extension.

An outside look on Benjamin’s comments. The good news is that he can take away any worries about him by having a great start to the season. Then he can sign an extension and we can all be glad things didn’t work out between him and the Panthers.
