Rumors: Packers could target Cole Beasley in free agency
According to Pete Dougherty of Packersnews.com, the Green Bay Packers should go after Cole Beasley in free agency.
I saw where Cole Beasley is available, if he can be had at a decent price I could see them making a run at him. They do need a traditional small-quick slot guy.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers already has a few weapons around him in Jimmy Graham and Davante Adams. But what the team is missing is a slot receiver. Somebody who can come in on third downs and run crossing routes and create separation. That kind of role is something that can be covered by Beasley, whose contract with the Cowboys will expire at the end of this season. Beasley signed a four-year deal worth $13.6 million with Dallas back in 2015.
Beasley will not be the flashiest signing for the Packers, but he would provide consistency at a good price.
In his past seven years with the Cowboys, Beasley has averaged about 60 receptions with 600 yards and a few touchdowns. He also has only missed a single game in the regular season over the last four years. He’s reliable and experienced. He finished the 2018 NFL season with 672 receiving yards and three touchdowns on 65 receptions, while appearing in all 16 games.
The Packers need to bolster their offense and focus on having dynamic playmakers moving forward. At the right price, Beasley would fit that role excellently.
