The New England Patriots continued to spin their revolving door at receiver Tuesday with the signings of Corey Coleman and Bennie Fowler.

Coleman, a 2016 first-round pick, is with his third team this preseason. The 5-foot-11, 185-pound receiver was released by the Buffalo Bills shortly after being acquired via trade from the Cleveland Browns.

Fowler, who was cut by the Chicago Bears in the preseason, spent the first four years of his career with the Denver Broncos after signing as an undrafted free agent in 2014.

At running back, New England added Kenjon Barner to replace the injured Jeremy Hill.

The Patriots also waived receiver/returner Riley McCaron, who muffed a punt in the fourth quarter of New England season-opening win on Sunday, along with recently acquired receiver Chad Hansen.
