Eagles need a WR; might troll Browns by working out Corey Coleman

Based on their behavior over the last couple of days, the Eagles are clearly in the market to bring in some help at wide receiver. 

They have a chance to troll the Cleveland Browns while they do it. 

Of course, that’s not going to be the Eagles’ motive, but that could be the result if they sign former first-round pick Corey Coleman, who is reportedly set to visit with the Eagles on Tuesday. 

Back in 2016, when the Eagles moved up from 13 to 8 to 2 to draft Carson Wentz, the Browns helped them do it. Instead of drafting Wentz, Cleveland passed and traded that No. 2 overall pick in a package that included No. 8. 

Of course, the Browns got a ton back in that package and traded down from 8 to 15 to get even more picks. So the first pick they used from that trade was at No. 15. They took Coleman, a promising receiver, out of Baylor. 

In two seasons with the Browns, Coleman caught 56 passes for 718 yards and five touchdowns. He was traded to the Bills in August but was released by Buffalo at final cuts. 

Now he’s on the market and might end up catching passes from the guy who the Browns really should have taken. 

After that trade with the Eagles to move down, the Browns then used those picks and got even more picks. They got a bucketload of picks. So many picks. They finally completed the deal this spring when they drafted Antonio Callaway in the fourth round. 

You can check out the spiderweb from that initial Wentz trade here, but here’s all you really need to know: The Browns lost. 

The Eagles got their franchise quarterback. And since this trade was made, the Browns have won the same number of games as the Eagles have won Super Bowls. 

Ouch. 

Now, if the Eagles sign Coleman and somehow make him into a serviceable player, they’ll be throwing salt in that wound.

Michael Bennett’s court date has been pushed for a 6th time

Michael Bennett’s most recent court date was pushed yet again. 

There was a scheduled court date (for which he didn’t need to appear) for the Eagles’ defensive end Wednesday at 1 p.m. for that felony injury to the elderly charge in Houston. 

But the court date has been reset for Nov. 28, Bennett’s attorney Rusty Hardin told NBC Sports Philadelphia. 

This is the sixth time a court date for this case has been rescheduled. 

The new date comes three days after the Eagles’ Week 12 game against the Giants at the Linc. 

Bennett, 32, is facing a felony charge for allegedly pushing and injuring an elderly paraplegic woman who was working at Super Bowl LI in Houston as he tried to make his way on the field to celebrate with his brother Martellus. 

Hardin has been adamant that his client is guilty of no wrongdoing.
