Two years removed from being a first-round draft pick Chris Ivory Jersey , receiver Corey Coleman vows he's got plenty to prove with the Buffalo Bills after falling well short of expectations in Cleveland.

That's the message Coleman posted on his Instagram account along with a video of him showing off his new Bills No. 19 jersey. And it's something Coleman repeated following his first practice at Bills training camp Tuesday, two days after being acquired in a trade with the Browns.

"It feels good to be wanted," said Coleman, wearing a towel around his neck while a steady rain fell. "They have their trust in me. I really don't want to let them down."

The Bills are providing Coleman a fresh start after his two-year tenure in Cleveland was beset by injuries and dropped passes. As an indication of how far his stock has fallen, Buffalo gave up a 2020 seventh-round pick to acquire the 15th player selected in the 2016 draft.

"A lot of things don't work out the way you want it to work out," Coleman said.

"I've got much respect for my teammates, man, those guys in the locker room over there in Cleveland are top-notch guys. We have a great fan base in Cleveland http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/rod-smith-jersey , too," he added. "I'm going to leave it at that."

If only the Browns and their fans could do the same so easily.

Traded by first-year general manager John Dorsey, Coleman came to symbolize the overall dysfunction of the Browns' previous regime, which passed on drafting current Eagles starting quarterback Carson Wentz by trading down and selecting the Baylor receiver.

Injuries limited Coleman to playing 19 games, during which he caught 56 of the 131 passes thrown in his direction for 718 yards and five touchdowns. And he will forever be remembered in Cleveland for dropping a pass late in the fourth quarter in last season's finale at Pittsburgh that sealed the Browns' 0-16 finish.

"Right, it's easy to point the finger and stuff," Coleman said. "Every week in the NFL you see receivers drop a ball, drop a pass. It matters how you respond. And that's a big thing."

The Bills took what GM Brandon Beane called "a low-risk" gamble in a bid to address a need at a position that lacks experienced and proven talent behind starter Kelvin Benjamin. Coleman also has the opportunity to provide the Bills' retooled offense an element of downfield speed to keep opposing defenses from crowding the line to stop the run.

"Look Dorance Armstrong Jr. Jersey , speed is dangerous," coach Sean McDermott said. "It opens up the defense a little bit for other things. So that element is important."

As for expectations, McDermott wants to provide Coleman time to learn the playbook and become comfortable with his new teammates and surroundings.

"Can't wait to watch him really just blossom into the player we believe he can become," McDermott said.

Coleman practiced on a limited basis Tuesday, and it's unclear whether he'll play in Buffalo's preseason opener against Carolina on Thursday.

He appreciates the amount of catching up he has ahead.

"It's difficult, you know, but we've got great resources here," Coleman said. "I'm going to work my tail off to come here Taylor Gabriel Jersey , do everything I need to do."

NOTES: McDermott wasn't prepared to announce who will start at quarterback against the Panthers. Offseason free-agent addition AJ McCarron and returning backup Nathan Peterman have split time with the starters for the first two weeks of training camp, while rookie first-round pick Josh Allen continues to mostly work with the third-string offense. ... LB Trent Murphy, an offseason free-agent addition, isn't expected to play after missing the past week with a groin injury. McDermott expects Murphy to resume practicing next week.

Detroit Lions coach Matt Patricia maintained his innocence and his new team said it supported him after a 1996 sexual assault allegation resurfaced Wednesday night.

The Detroit News reported that Patricia and a friend of his were indicted 22 years ago by a Texas grand jury, on one count each of aggravated sexual assault for an alleged incident involving a woman on South Padre Island. The accuser did not testify and the case was dismissed 10 months later.

”As someone who was falsely accused of this very serious charge over 22 years ago, and never given the opportunity to defend myself and clear my name, I find it incredibly unfair, disappointing http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com/jordan-howard-jersey , and frustrating that this story would resurface now with the only purpose being to damage my character and reputation,” Patricia said in a statement issued by the Lions. ”I firmly maintain my innocence, as I have always done.”

The Lions hired Patricia after last season to replace Jim Caldwell as coach. He had previously been an assistant with the New England Patriots.

The Lions said a ”standard pre-employment background check” did not turn up the incident. But the team said it was standing by Patricia.

”We have spoken to Coach Patricia about this at length as well as the attorney who represented him at the time,” the Lions said in a statement attributed to owner Martha Firestone Ford, general manager Bob Quinn and president Rod Wood. ”Based upon everything we have learned, we believe and have accepted Coach Patricia’s explanation and we will continue to support him.”
