Cole Beasley Tweets About Vaccine Requirements
The Buffalo Bills are looking ahead to off-season events, such as the NFL Scouting Combine, the start of free agency, and the 2023 NFL Draft.
However, they also have to worry about trying to re-sign their own pending free agents, such as safety Jordan Poyer, linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, running back Devin Singletary and defensive tackle Jordan Phillips.
Wide receiver Cole Beasley is also a pending free agent, after coming out of retirement in December to sign with the Bills practice squad; which eventually led to an elevation to the active roster for the playoffs.
Beasley, 32, showed that he still has a little bit left in the tank. He has expressed a desire to be back in Buffalo for next season. It shouldn't cost much for general manager Brandon Beane, but we will have to wait and see if the Bills want to bring Beasley back for another season.
Beasley has been a polarizing professional athlete since the spring of 2021, with his tweets about COVID-19 and the vaccine. There has been many tweets that have brought huge engagement and storylines for Beasley off the field, but he has been more reserved in recent months on the subject.
On Wednesday, Beasley brought up the vaccine again, with the vaccine requirements that some places and countries require, including Turks & Caicos, which Beasley planned on going to in the off-season.
The tweet has over 6,000 likes and well over 700 replies in just a few hours.
Beasley is beloved by his Bills teammates and is close with some of his teammates on offense.
I think it would make sense to re-sign Beasley to a one-year deal and see where it goes in training camp. To have a veteran like Beasley be a fourth or fifth wide receiver would not be a bad thing for the Bills wide receiver depth next season.
