Corey Coleman returns to the NY Giants, signing onto the practice squad after the wide receiver was released back in September.

The NY Giants signed Corey Coleman to the practice squad, Wednesday, bringing back a familiar face to the receiving corps.

Originally signed to the Giants’ practice squad back in 2018, Coleman appeared in eight games that season, catching five of his eight targets for 71 yards.

The Giants had high expectations for Coleman prior to the 2019 season, as he opened as one of the team’s top-three receivers in training camp prior to tearing his ACL on the first day of practice.

Coleman, 26, was one of the most surprising cuts the Giants made at the end of training camp back in September after an impressive summer.

The first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns back in 2016, Coleman has 61 receptions for 789 yards and five touchdowns in 27 career games.

With the versatility to also contribute in the return game, it wouldn’t be surprising if Coleman gets quickly called back up to the active 53-man roster.

Coleman joins new NY Giants practice squad additions tight end Rysen John and defensive back Montre Hartage, all released by the Giants this summer and all re-signed Wednesday.
