About a month ago the New York Giants Dalvin Tomlinson Color Rush Jersey , looking for an additional wide receiver and some energstretch that had seen Coleman traded by the Cleveland Browns and then cut once by the Buffalo Bills and twice by the New England Patriots since the beginning training camp.That decision is paying dividends for the Giants.A third-year player, the speedy Coleman is being used as a kickoff returner for the first time in his career. Coleman is averaging 28.6 yards on eight returns, including a 51-yarder. If Coleman had enough returns to qualify, he would be sixth in the NFL in average yards per return.It seems like maybe the Cleveland Browns, Bills or Patriots perhaps should have given Coleman an opportunity to return kickoffs somewhere along the way.“I feel the same way,” Coleman said while perched on a stool in front of his locker on Wednesday. “You can’t control some things.”“When I was on that other team in Ohio I had to just do what I was told 鈥?it comes down to control what you can control.”That “other team in Ohio” is, of course, the Browns. Cleveland made Coleman the 15th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft and traded him to the Bills in the summer after just two seasons.When the Giants signed Coleman Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer told us that “The Browns didn’t like his work ethic or his attitude, and he also got in some trouble here that didn’t sit well.”Answering questions quietly and politely at his locker, Coleman said he is enjoying his time with the Giants because he is “with a great group of guys and coaches who believe in me and just let me be me.”What has Coleman learned from the rough road he has experienced in the NFL thus far?“I feel like don’t let anything break you. I believe in hard work, keep on pushing. God has a bigger plan. The biggest thing with me is I got to see the business aspect of it and the other side Phil McConkey Color Rush Jersey ,” Coleman said.“Don’t take anything for granted. When you go to practice every day practice hard. Be the best version of you.”Coleman has enjoyed his time with the Giants.“I’m loving it here. Everyone here is so kind, so genuine and they’re helping me become a better football player,” said Coleman.He might well have been taking a swipe at the Browns when he said draft eligible players need to “pray that they get drafted into the right situation.”“Some guys get drafted into a situation where it’s hard for them to be successful,” he said. “The stuff around them isn’t set up for them to be successful.”In a league where the touchback is being encouraged with teams being given the ball at the 25-yard line, Coleman has thus far taken several kickoffs back from inside the end zone.“I’m believing in myself and my skill set,” he said.He is making believers out of the Giants, as well. Good morning, New York Giants fans. Here are some headlines to start your Friday.Mike Shula: At least Kyle Lauletta got experienceWas there anything to like about the 0-for-5, one interception, no first downs in three series performance by rookie Kyle Lauletta in the fourth quarter Sunday against the Washington Redskins?“He got experience,” is about all offensive coordinator Mike Shula could come up with on Thursday. “It’s unfortunate that we didn’t have more success with him in there, but he’ll learn from it.”Asked on Wednesday if Lauletta would continue as the backup to Eli Manning Andrew Adams Color Rush Jersey , head coach Pat Shurmur said “At this point, but we could always change our mind.”Jawill Davis “on the right path”Replacing the injured Quadree Henderson, rookie undrafted free agent Jawill Davis has averaged 10.9 yards on eight punt returns. His ball security has, to this point, been solid.“He’s on the right path,” special teams coach Thomas McGaughey said.” You look at what this kid has done, it’s incredible. This kid has never returned punts before. For him to do what he’s doing, he’s doing a tremendous job. I’m extremely proud of him. Every snap is a new experience for him. He just has to go out there and just keep doing what he’s doing. Catch the ball. When you catch the ball, get positive yards and he’s done a good job of that.”Kareem Martin is “cutting loose”Kareen Martin, signed as a free agent in the offseason, started slowly with the Giants. He has, however Wayne Gallman Color Rush Jersey , played better in recent weeks. Martin has two sacks in the last four games, has thus far played a career-high 501 snaps, has a career-best, 22 pressures and has missed just one tackle in the last 11 games.“He’s working, he’s disruptive, he’s playing fast. Probably about three or four weeks ago, Kareem and I had a conversation just, hey, let’s start cutting loose, let’s start disrupting, getting off the ball, playing vertical Jon Halapio Color Rush Jersey , and I think we’ve been doing that better as an overall defensive front seven,” defensive coordinator James Bettcher said. “We’ve played more vertical both in the run game and in the pass game, You see some of that leads to disruption. It’s not just the third down disruption in the pass game, it’s the first and second down where we’re kind of disrupting the quarterback a little bit now and I think Kareem’s following that with the rest of the guys up front.”Around the Inter-GoogleAll 32 NFL defensive lines, ranked - SBNation.comWhich teams have the best defensive fronts in the NFL?
