Corey Coleman: Gets cut Tuesday

Coleman was waived from the Chiefs' practice squad Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Coleman spent training camp with the Chiefs before ultimately being cut, and then signed to their practice squad. The 2016 first round selection hasn't played an NFL snap since 2018 with the Giants. He'll work to find an opportunity elsewhere, so he can get back on an NFL roster.

Childhood and Highschool

Corey Coleman was born July 6, 1994. He was a three-sport star throughout high school, where he attended J.J. Pearce High School in the small town of Richardson, Texas. He excelled in football, basketball, and track. His head coach, Randy Robertson, saw potential in him as a receiver and rusher, and he received MVP Honors as a wide receiver in 2011. He was a sprinter and jumper on the track and field team as well, and posted a best-time of 10.83 seconds during the 100-meter dash.

College

Coleman was a four-star recruit and committed to playing college football at Baylor University. He started 10 of the 13 games as a redshirt freshman for the university in 2013. By the end of the first season, he had 35 receptions for 527 yards along with two touchdowns. He experienced a hamstring injury in his sophomore season, causing him to miss the first three games. He set a school record in his junior year with four touchdown receptions in one game. He missed the Russell Athletic Bowl because of a sports hernia surgery. After the surgery, he skipped his senior year to go into the 2016 NFL Draft. It’s also said that he dressed for all the games in the three years of his college career, even if he didn’t see game action.
