The Bills are adding an experienced slot receiver to their track team at wideout.

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the Bills are signing wide receiver Cole Beasley to a four-year, $29 million deal.

Beasley will fit in alongside just-signed John Brown, and give the Bills a different dimension in the passing game.

The 29-year-old Beasley had 65 catches for 672 yards and three touchdowns last year for the Cowboys.

  1. cowboys are so out of touch! this was a team friendly deal and he knows the offense and produces whenever called upon. but no lets bring back an aged TE that runs a 5.8 40 and then watch us sign earl Thomas to the 14 mil a yr hes asking as opposed to going after ha ha Clinton dix at way less money and who is younger and not running around on a broken leg…smh

  2. @eaze I agree witten is probably the slowest player in the league but the dude is a hell of a blocker and is on a team friendly deal. As much as I love Beasley getting 7 mil a year is not worth it this draft class is loaded with slot wrs and Amari can also play the slot. Clinton dix is garbage did you not watch him get torched all season? Id stick with woods and a rookie over him

    Beasley was never coming back to the Cowboys. If you follow him on Twitter, then you’ve seen all of the lightly veiled shots he took at the Cowboys and Dak all last season. He wasn’t happy with the number of targets he was getting, and he felt under appreciated. I loved Bease as a Cowboy, but it was time for him to move on. Good luck on that craptastic Bills team Cole. I hear Buffalo is the place to be for an up and coming rapper, lol!

    Oh, and Ha-Ha sucks. There’s a reason the packers shipped him to D.C. last year.

    Cole wanted $20 million guaranteed. The Cowboys arent giving ET $14.. If they were giving him that he would have already been signed. Witten is making $3.5, with incentives he can get to $5.. Save the money on Cole, I say trade D-Law and keep drafting young guys. Keep adding salary cap space.. hold out on ET until you get him under $10

    He talked his way out of Dallas. Hope he likes living in Buffalo lol

  6. This will definitely impact the Cowboys a lot production wise. He was a 3rd down security and Dak’s liability and security blanket on short passes. Not a good look for Dak and his bid for a new contract unless they get another reliable slot guy like him for replacement.

  7. Cole Beasley is an underrated receiver. He put up good numbers with an average QB on a run first team. Perfect fit for the Bills.

  8. These early deals all have one thing in common. There is a lot of preemptive bidding going on at some very high numbers.

    Best to stay out of the way I think.

    yep, sit back and watch good players get signed….makes sense

  10. Bills are making smart moves so far. Nothing splashy – just good players and depth.

    They will be a contender this season, and likely well beyond.

  11. Thanks for the catches on 3rd down, Beas. But it was time to go. You’re not worth that kind of money and your schtick was getting old. Oh, and your rap could use some work, too.

    Buffalo invented the hot wing…
    ==========================================================================================

    well they got that going for them I guess -_____-

  14. Got to love all the Bills haters! Atleast they are trying to improve their roster . These moves allow the Bills to draft best available first and second rounds, not players to fill holes! Cole Beasley has good hands and he just gets open.

    So how’s he going to do with a below-average, run first QB??

    Coming into free agency, everyone doesn’t have the same amount of money to spend. Every team fails but one. If you look at free agent spending in 2018, there is no proof it works either way. It varies wildly.

    You can say it with all your screen names but it won’t make it true, the Bills are going nowhere like usual.

  18. Solid WR room coming together. Between the Beasley and Brown signing there is definite improvement and if Duke Williams ends up amounting to anything that will just be a bonus. Let’s Go Buffalo!

    Does Dallas still have Tavon Austin? Can he play the slot receiver position?
    ===========================================================================
    I believe he’s a free agent, not sure he’ll be back. It looks like the Cowboys plan on using Hearns in the slot.

    Who’s going to throw them the ball, Mr 52%?

    Wide right, you lose again.
    ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
    At least we know he won’t have 25 million per year bust Carr throwing to him Joe. And sorry pal, I have one username, have never had any other. You on the other hand have about 55 usernames, this being one of them.

  21. This is the part of free agency where above average players get elite money. Collins is not elite. Flowers is not elite. Trent brown not elite. Thomas could be if he can stay healthy but he hasn’t been able to do that so he isn’t getting elite money offers. Beasley was a fan favorite but he is a one trick pony. He is average and Dallas used him accordingly. He will end up with much less targets and production in Buf. He was, like almost all FA, over paid. Most elite talent never hits the market. The ones that due have baggage like age, injury or insanity. The rest are role players lookong for more money then they are worth which is why huge deals almost never live up to their contracts a.k.a Oliver Vernon with NY, Suh with WAS, Carr with Dallas and Cousins in MIN to name a few.

  22. Allen ran because there was no intermediate threat, leaving the field wide open, and contributing to the percentage. Beasley fills this. Some guys just don’t know football

  23. I think the Cowboys will regret letting Cole Beasley walk. There is nobody on the current Cowboys roster that is capable of replacing him. Allen Hurns in not a slot type receiver. Moving Cooper to slot would be a terrible waste of a good WR. Dak is going to miss Beasley the most. His security blanket is gone. Witten have something let in the tank, especially on 3rd down. The ‘Boys better hope Zeke gains over 1800 yards running the ball. It’s back to a ball control offense on the ground for Dallas. That may not be a bad idea.

  24. I guess being on a winning team or even getting decent stats aren’t important to Cole anymore. Good luck with the Bills. They haven’t been a winning team for years and when they were they found a way to lose four consecutive Super Bowls. Something no other team has been able to do and they had a stud as a QB, great WR and a fantastic RB with a solid D. Now they are just a team with a good D.
