Despite their transition to a new coaching staff and Corey Coleman having missed all of last season due to injury, the Giants are re-signing the former first-round pick. They will re-sign Coleman to a one-year deal, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com tweets.

Coleman missed all of last season due to a summer ACL tear. He will now make another attempt to contribute in New York. The former No. 15 overall pick has not fared well since his initial weeks in the NFL in 2016. Coleman caught just five passes in eight Giants games in 2018.

Set to turn 26 in July, Coleman has enjoyed a modicum of stability with the Giants after being discarded by a few AFC teams in the months prior. Shortly after Coleman displayed an extensive sneaker collection on 2018’s Hard Knocks installment, the Browns traded him to the Bills. Buffalo then waived him. The Patriots cut him from their practice squad in the fall of 2018. Coleman then rose from the Giants’ P-squad to their active roster.

Despite this latest Giants agreement, Coleman is nearly out of chances in the NFL. The first receiver taken in the 2016 draft has 61 receptions for 789 yards and five touchdowns in his career. He will be no higher than fourth on a Giants depth chart that houses Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate and Darius Slayton.
