The Dallas Cowboys’ deal with slot receiver Cole Beasley is officially done, meaning Beasley will be in Dallas for the next four seasons. The deal is worth $13.6 million.
An SMU product, Beasley has established himself as a major third down weapon for Tony Romo. He had 37 catches for 420 yards and four touchdowns in 2014, and has 91 catches since coming into the league in 2012.
“He’s a really interesting player,” head coach Jason Garrett said of Beasley, per the Dallas Morning News. “He’s got a lot of unique skills, he’s a hard matchup for guys, he’s hard to cover in man, he’s hard to cover in zone. More than anything else, his mentality is really good. He’s got great confidence in himself, he’s got a really good feel for playing the game, and I think he understands that some how, some way he’s going to present himself to the quarterback and be open. I think that instills a lot of confidence in the quarterback to throw it to him. We’ve known about who he is for a long time, he’s a damn good player.”
