Cole Beasley's whole thought process has changed when it comes to running routes.
He can thank receivers coach Sanjay Lal.
I've been real patient at the line a lot in my career. Now, I'm flying off the ball," Beasley said. "Now there are things that I need to do to have change-ups, if you will, and different ways to come off the ball and attack."
The latest news from around North Texas.
Beasley, entering the final year of a four-year contract, caught 36 passes for 314 yards and four touchdowns last year.
He didn't like the way he was used exclusively in the slot. Teams doubled teamed him and took him away because they knew he didn't run many routes.
That's no longer the case. He's been working outside and in the slot.
"I was a little passive last year waiting to see what, I got so many different looks I was waiting to see what they were going to do before I started my route and I wasn't as good of a route runner because of it. Just firing off the ball and playing fast is what I'm focusing on."
