The Dallas Cowboys re-signed their own free agent, Cole Beasley, to a four-year deal according to Rand Getlin at Yahoo Sports. Beasley will receive $13.6 million over the lifetime of the deal with a $4 million signing bonus and $7 million guaranteed. With certain escalators, the deal can actually be worth $15.1 million overall.

Beasely has turned into a key addition to the Cowboys offense, serving as the slot-receiver in three receiver sets and a reliable option for Tony Romo on third downs.

2014 was Beasley's third season with the Cowboys and his best so far. He caught 37 passes for 420 yards and four touchdowns. For his career, he has caught 91 passes for 916 yards and six touchdowns. Beasley is in the mold of the diminutive and quick slot receiver that gives cornerbacks fits on short passes. His ability to change direction quickly coupled with sure hands makes him a dangerous weapon on 3rd and short plays.

With Beasley back in the fold, Terrance Williams under contract, and Dez Bryant likely to play under the franchise tag, or a newly negotiated long term deal, the Cowboys will return all three starting receivers.
