Cole Beasley sets deadline for retirement decision

It appears Cole Beasley has set a timeline regarding his NFL future.

At the end of the 2022 season, Beasley indicated he was open to returning to the Buffalo Bills in 2023. The 34-year-old signed with the team once again mid-season.

Beasley did not make the biggest of impacts and that’s a bit of the reason why he has set the deadline he has.

Writing via social media post on Twitter, Beasley said he wants to join a team but only will if he’s signed before or during training camp. He cited the desire to wanting to build on chemistry prior to the season as a reason why:

In a separate message, Beasley indicated if he was to come back for the 2023 season, he personally does not believe it will be in Buffalo. The reason why just came and went: the 2023 NFL draft.

Tight end Dalton Kincaid is not a receiver, but he does make plays out of the slot like Beasley once did for the Bills.

In a separate post on Twitter, Beasley wrote:

“I think them drafting that TE in the first round put an end to that man. He’s gonna be on the field. It was fun while it lasted though.”

Prior to re-signing with the Bills during last season, Beasley had a short spell with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

In March 2022, Beasley’s first stint in Buffalo ended. He was granted permission to seek a trade after off-field headlines followed Beasley during the COVID-19 pandemic, but the Bills ended up outright releasing him.
