Free-agent wide receiver Corey Coleman has been suspended six games by the NFL for violating its performance-enhancing drug policy, the NFL Network announced Tuesday.

Coleman, 26, was released by the New York Giants in September and sat out the entire season.

The Cleveland Browns selected Coleman with the 15th overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft and traded him to Buffalo on Aug. 5, 2018, for a 2020 seventh-round draft pick. He was released less than a month later.

Coleman then signed with New England but was released after less than a week; the Patriots later re-signed him to the practice squad. He was released nine days later when they acquired another former Browns receiver in Josh Gordon.

The Giants signed him to the practice squad in 2018, and he wound up playing in eight games and catching just five passes for 71 yards. New York was counting on his contribution in 2019, but he tore an ACL on the first day of practice and missed the season.

Coleman has 61 receptions for 789 yards and five touchdowns in 27 career NFL games.
