Signing with Buccaneers

Although Tampa Bay had one of the strong passing games in the NFL when the season began. Now the team is significantly understaffed as of this week. Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee) missed Week 2’s game against the New Orleans Saints and are both likely to be listed as questionable on the Week 3 NFL injury report.

Tom Brady, the quarterback, pushed the team to hire more seasoned players who might be available to play the Packers after two discouraging games.

Cole Beasley time at Bills and Cowboys

Beasley just had a successful season with the Buffalo Bills. The slot receiver finished the season with 82 receptions for 693 yards and one touchdown while playing in 16 games.

While his yards decreased from 2020, he continued to be one of the league’s finest options. To save some money against the salary cap, the Bills chose to cut ties with Beasley after the season.

Following the 2012 NFL Draft, Beasley first joined the league as an undrafted free agent. After joining the Dallas Cowboys, Beasley’s career was on the verge of being over before it had even begun.

He briefly left the squad during training camp to take care of “personal matters,” and he reportedly thought about giving up football. He eventually went back to the Cowboys though, and as an undrafted free agent, he made the team.
