In addition to Coleman, the Patriots also reportedly signed wide receiver Bennie Fowler III, according to ESPN's Field Yates.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that the Pats signed the former first-round receiver to a one-year contract, per a source informed of the deal. He did not make the final roster and went unclaimed on waivers. The Browns originally traded Coleman, the 15th overall pick in the 2016 National Football League draft, to the Bills for a 2020 seventh-round pick.

Bills first-year offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is a former Patriots assistant who is running a similar offense to New England's under Josh McDaniels.

The Patriots started Chris Hogan and Phillip Dorsett Sunday in a win over the Texans, but they could use some depth before Julian Edelman returns from his four-game suspension.

In 45 game appearances in the National Football League so far in his career, Barner has burned rubber for 317 rushing yards and three touchdowns. But Cordarrelle Patterson (16 plays) and McCarron (15) rotated through and made little impact as the third and fourth receivers.

The Michigan State product spent his first three seasons in the National Football League with the Denver Broncos. He'll be able to contribute on special teams right away; Fowler played the fifth-most special teams snaps on the Broncos (227) last season.

Barner, 29, was originally drafted by the Carolina Panthers in the sixth round (182nd overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft out of Oregon. He also has 56 career receptions with five touchdowns.
