The New York Giants have signed veteran wide receiver Cole Beasley to a one-year contract, the team announced on Friday.
Beasley, 34, is a proven slot receiver who has been productive throughout his 11-year NFL career. He has caught 556 passes for 5,744 yards and 34 touchdowns in 153 games with the Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Beasley is a particularly good fit for the Giants’ offense, which is looking to add more weapons for quarterback Daniel Jones. Beasley is a quick, shifty receiver who is known for his ability to get open in the short and intermediate passing game. He is also a reliable pass-catcher who has a knack for making tough catches.
The addition of Beasley gives the Giants a much-needed boost at wide receiver. The team’s top two receivers from last season, Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney, are both coming off injuries. Beasley’s presence will help to take some of the pressure off of those two players and give Jones more options to throw to.
Beasley is also familiar with the Giants’ offensive system. He played for three seasons under Giants head coach Brian Daboll when Daboll was the offensive coordinator of the Buffalo Bills. This familiarity should help Beasley to quickly get up to speed with the Giants’ offense.
The signing of Beasley is a good move for the Giants. He is a proven veteran who will be a valuable asset to the team’s offense. Beasley’s addition gives the Giants a more balanced receiving corps and makes them a more dangerous team on offense.
