    Report: Patriots Sign Wide Receiver Corey Coleman

    The New England Patriots are signing former first-round wide receiver Corey Coleman, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

    Coleman signed a one year deal with the Patriots, making him their third receiver who was selected in the first round, Rapoport said. The team was thin at the wide receiver position following the suspension of Julian Edelman and the offseason departures of Brandin Cooks and Danny Amendola.

    Coleman played college football at Baylor University and was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

    The news of his signing comes a day after Rapoport reported that running back Jeremy Hill is out for the season with a torn ACL. Hill hurt his knee in Sunday's season opener vs. the Houston Texans after carrying the ball four times for 25 yards.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
