Cleveland Browns running back Corey Coleman said Monday he doesn’t want to be traded, and that he isn’t willing to renegotiate his rookie deal.
In an interview with The Plain Dealer, Coleman said, “I’m never going to be a free-agent.
You know what I’m saying?
I don’t want any trade.
You can talk about it, but I’m not going to get traded.”
Coleman, who signed a two-year, $13.5 million contract in 2015, has rushed for 1,826 yards and 12 touchdowns in 19 games since being signed as an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee in 2014.
He is tied for fifth in the NFL in rushing and tied for seventh in yards per carry with 1.85.
He also has 11 touchdowns in six games this season.
The Browns also have a pair of first-round draft picks in tight end Jake Butt and quarterback Tyler Bray.
The team signed veteran wide receiver Travis Benjamin to a one-year deal last month.
