Cowboys re-sign slot receiver Cole Beasley on 4-year deal
IRVING, Texas (AP) The Cowboys have re-signed restricted free agent Cole Beasley after the diminutive receiver emerged as a threat in the slot last season for Tony Romo.
Beasley signed a four-year contract Wednesday reportedly worth about $14 million, with $7 million guaranteed. The 5-foot-8 former SMU player had career highs with 420 yards and four touchdowns in his third season in 2014.
The signing of Beasley came two days after Dallas put the franchise tag on All-Pro receiver Dez Bryant, who will make $12.8 million if he signs the one-year tender. The Cowboys have until July 15 to sign Bryant to a long-term deal.
Beasley was third among Dallas receivers behind Bryant and Terrance Williams. He has 916 career yards.
