If you watched Saturday night’s exhibition between the Dallas Cowboys and the San Diego Chargers, you likely came away with a lasting image of the rookie out of SMU--be it him losing his lunch on the sidelines after landing awkwardly on the ball, catching seven passes for 104 yards, or making a nice 24-yard punt return, only to have it negated by a penalty.
Of Beasley’s 104 yards, more than half came from a pair of run-and-catches--one that went for 28 yards and another that went for 29--but despite showing coaches his ability with respect to running after the catch, Beasley wasn’t exactly over the moon with his performance.
“I guess it went pretty well,” he said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I’ve still got to clean up the mental errors and stuff. But overall, it was a pretty good day.”
Of course, one can only get so excited about a preseason receiving performance. Dwayne Harris had a similar game last season (and Harris’ actually included a pair of touchdowns) before not recording a single catch in the regular season. Considering this, from all we can tell, Kevin Ogletree remains in the lead in the race for the No. 3 receiver job.
