Draft Scout Cole Beasley News
08/31/15 - WR Cole Beasley has tried to resist the comparisons to Wes Welker his entire career. But they won't go away and Beasley only added to it with status as the team's primary punt returner in 2015. That was a Welker staple as well as being a undersized slot receiver.
Beasley, nicknamed "the paper boy" by coach Jason Garrett, has a knack for getting open in the slot and making people miss on punt returns. Just like Welker in his prime.
08/21/15 - WR Cole Beasley feels good after missing a few days earlier in the week with a sore Achilles. Look for him to get a few chances returning punts against the 49ers. The Cowboys want Lucky Whitehead to take hold of the job but Beasley might be the best and safest option.
03/04/15 - WR Cole Beasley parlayed a strong 2014 season into a four-year contract extension worth $13.6 million, including $7 million guaranteed. He also got a $4 million signing bonus to be the third receiver for years to come.
03/03/15 - WR Cole Beasley agreed to a four-year deal with the Cowboys.
03/03/15 - WR Cole Beasley is expected to re-sign with the Cowboys. Beasley is scheduled to become a restricted free agent March 10.
The 25-year-old Beasley and the Cowboys reached agreement on a four-year contract estimated to be worth $13.6 million and includes $7 million in guaranteed money and a $4 million signing bonus, NFL.com reported.
Fellow wide receiver Dez Bryant liked the move, tweeting "Congrats to my boy @Bease11 #beast #truth."
As part of a receiving corps that features Bryant, Beasley caught 37 passes for 420 yards and a career-high four touchdowns last season. He was the team's fourth-leading receiver behind Bryant, tight end Jason Witten and running back DeMarco Murray.
Nine of those catches came in the final game of the regular season. In the playoffs, Beasley added 11 receptions in two games.
In three seasons with the Cowboys, Beasley has 91 receptions for 916 yards and six touchdowns.
