Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor said Sunday that he’s not ready to sign with the Dolphins, despite the team’s interest in adding veteran running back Corey Coleman.
Coleman, who was the first running back taken in the draft, was traded to the Carolina Panthers for running back Brandon LaFell on Sunday.
If the Bills were interested in signing Coleman, they would need to send up the second-round pick they took in the 2017 draft.
But if they wanted to move up to acquire the veteran running game, the Bills would likely have to make a move up.
Coleman is a former top-10 pick by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2016 draft.
If he were to leave Pittsburgh, the Dolphins would likely be in position to pick up the veteran back.
Dolphins offensive coordinator Doug Marrone said he didn’t know of any moves that might have been made to acquire Coleman.
“I know Corey is going to be very much a part of this team.
We have no idea where he’s going to play, but we’re going to do our due diligence,” Marrone told reporters.
Coleman has 11 catches for 147 yards this season.
“We’re not talking about it,” Marrow said.
“Obviously, we’ve got to move forward and get better.
We’ve got a lot of pieces.
We’re going forward.”
The Bills and Dolphins have been linked as teams to draft a quarterback.
Miami’s Matt Moore, who spent last season with the Jets, is the top candidate to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 draft.
The Dolphins have also been linked to LSU’s Deshaun Watson, Florida State’s Jameis Winston and Clemson’s Deshad Davenport.
