Bills Receiver Cole Beasley Sparks Controversy on Social Media with Mask Debate [TWEETS]
We're well into the offseason for the Buffalo Bills and the rest of the NFL. Free agency and the NFL Draft have already come and gone, so now we're just waiting for training camp to start in late July. The season kicks off in September and for the Bills it will be at home on September 12th against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
However, players can be in the spotlight based off social media posts and on Thursday, wide receiver Cole Beasley sparked some controversy with tweets about masks and the pandemic.
Beasley responded to a tweet where the director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci said that people who are full vaccinated so not need to wear masks outdoors and that "we have to make that transition."
Beasley went on about the topic.
Beasley has spent the past two seasons with the Bills and had a career-high 82 catches and 967 receiving yards last year. Beasley likely would have gone over 1,000 receiving yards for the first time in his career, but he unfortunately missed the last game of the regular season due to an injury.
Beasley is now part of what some may consider to be one of the best receiving corps in football: Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley, Emmanuel Sanders, Gabriel Davis, Isaiah McKenzie.
