Buffalo has officially moved on from Cole Beasley.

The Bills announced that they’ve released him on Thursday.

Beasley reportedly received permission to seek a trade earlier this month. With the team re-signing Isaiah McKenzie, it became clear that it was only a matter of time before Buffalo let Beasley go one way or another.

By releasing Beasley, the Bills save $6.1 million against the cap and will incur a $1.5 million dead cap charge.

Beasley spent the last three seasons with the Bills. In 16 games last season, he caught 82 passes for 693 yards with one touchdown.

Beasley played his first seven seasons with Dallas, originally signing with the team as an undrafted free agent in 2012.

In 10 seasons, Beasley’s amassed 550 receptions for 5,709 yards with 34 touchdowns.

  1. Thanks for everything, Cole! He was a great Bill. He made so many clutch plays over the past few years.

    Best of luck to him wherever he goes.

  2. Now he’s going to need vaccinations to merit consideration by other clubs. Choices have consequences.

  3. For whatever reason this guy could not accept how lucky he was to play football for a living. Made it an easy decision.

  4. Onto his field of expertise. Epidemiology. Hope we never hear from you again….Cole….what a tool….

  5. Should have got the shot and shut his mouth about it. Small dude and not that good really. Another team will pick him up for a little contract

  6. Says a lot that he couldn’t make a trade for himself when given the opportunity. He’ll get signed somewhere, but no one wants to give up assets for an unvaccinated dope.

  7. Beasley is still good enough to play, but between the cap hit and the distraction he caused last season, the writing was on the wall.

  8. Lesson learned. If you’re going to be an obnoxious anti-vaxxer in the NFL, you had better be a super star like Aaron Rodgers. Because if you’re just an average WR, you’re going to find yourself unemployed.

  9. I hope the Bills told him it was a “personal choice” that he needed to respect.

  10. Not a bad deal for him…stay in shape…get a call late summer early fall when a team needs a WR. Good work if you can get it.

  11. I know he’s not vaccinated but has anyone bothered to do any further checking. He might be “immunized”

  12. Sad to see him go. He was a go-to when we needed to convert a 3rd down… He even played with s broken leg. He was hard to cover. All-Pro slot receiver. Just look at his big plays in the playoffs. Too bad we couldn’t keep him. Best of luck except playing against the Bills, Cole.

  13. Couldn’t have happened to a more self-absorbed creep. Showed that his own ego meant more to him than being there for his team when he was needed.

    On the bright side, he now has more time to do “his own research”. Maybe this time he’ll actually learn a thing or two.

  14. I love how people use not being vaccinated against guys who get cut, yet an unvaccinated QB just got paid the highest contract in NFL history

    Do you think maybe the fact that Rodgers is a four-time league MVP who plays the most important position in football has anything to do with that?

  16. Is it me or does the expression “Caphell” seem to be the only word Pats fans use when describing another team that has pummeled New England, post – Brady?

    You are exactly right. Which proves my point. It is about talent, costs, age, and production. Hes a 32 year old receiver on a team who had young kids pop the 2nd half the year last year. He’s not a pro bowler or an allstar. He has always just been an ok receiver. Those are the type of players that do get cut regularly.

  18. Cole got cut because he was the 4th best WR on the roster and was due to make $8mil.

    Him being an idiot had nothing to do with it.
