The Buffalo News’ Jay Skurski speculates that Cole Beasley being released “shouldn’t be entirely ruled out.”
20 July 2021
Beasley, one of the NFL's outspoken players on vaccination, could “save the Bills the trouble if he follows through on his retirement threat.” Trading or releasing Beasley saves $5.3 million on the 2021 cap. Buffalo signed veteran slot WR Emmanuel Sanders this offseason and could use the Beasley savings towards a Josh Allen extension. Moving on from the 32-year-old would leave dead-money hits of $2 million and $1.5 million the next two seasons.
