Veteran receiver Cole Beasley is among the notable players who has not yet found a team with training camps now open.

The Bills cut Beasley in March, and there’s been little reporting of any teams making him offers.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports that Beasley wouldn’t play for a veteran minimum deal, but that there’s an expectation he’ll be in a training camp at some time within the next couple weeks.

The 33-year-old Beasley caught 82 passes last season, which tied his career high, but he totaled just 693 receiving yards, and his average of 8.45 yards per catch was a career low.

  1. ‘Distraction’ swings both ways. I really think the players in Buffalo got sick of him. No one stood up for him publicly. I’m sure word got around that he was a huge PITA off the field in the facility, and 693 yards for an aging slot receiver that was a B+ player at best isn’t worth the headache.

  2. This is what happens when you open your big mouth, contradicting logic. No one wants him ruining team chemistry with his erroneous opinions.

  3. I don’t really see how anyone thinks a WR who averages 8 yards a catch is that valuable.

  4. “Getting punished for his Covid stance. Is this still the land of the free?”

    He wasn’t fired. No one wants to deal with the drama. His drama level exceeds his talent. It is like the “hot vs. crazy” scale.

    That’s what ‘free’ means.
    He is ‘free’ to not get the vaccine
    and employers are ‘free’ to not hire him because it may affect their business

    You are free to hire him if you wish.

    It is if you can average more than 8 yards a catch. He is getting punished for being a PITA who wants too much money and is very replaceable

  9. Remember how he trashed Dallas after he left for the Bills…

    God I would love to see a reunion and hear the hypocrisy from both sides during the announcement

  10. I’m surprised a team with a young QB didn’t sign him. Obviously not the fastest or biggest WR, but can still create space. Was a good outlet for Allen during his first 3 seasons.

  11. What airing dirty laundry on public forums can do for you, especially if what you are spewing isn’t your employer’s ideals.

  12. It is insane to think that the country isn’t free anymore because an aging wide receiver with career low yards-per-catch got cut and hasn’t caught on elsewhere.

    Yes this is still the land of the free. Beasley exercised his right. However if you shoot your mouth off and say stupid things please, don’t be surprised if it bites you in the ass.

  14. I think he has brain trauma and it just can’t be confirmed. He’s had his fair share of concussions. Maybe forced retirement is good for him.

  15. Teams just don’t like distractions — unless the player is a regular pro bowler. . . .

  16. I don’t really see how anyone thinks a WR who averages 8 yards a catch is that valuable.

    3rd and 6? The guy had a great run with the Bills and they now have younger/cheaper guys to fill the role. If you’re doubting the value he provided with that stat line you certainly didn’t watch the games and never took the field yourself.

  17. Beasley would catch the ball underneath the coverage then pick a spot to dive to the ground between defenders. Not “willing to go the extra mile” meant not willing to go the extra foot. Bills say they’re working this off season on yards after the catch. Cutting Beasley is bound to go a long way toward that goal.

  18. 33 years old, 8.2 yds per catch, 3.7 yds after catch, 1 touchdown, no factor in red zone, can’t block. That’s why he’s not signed.
