It has been a busy offseason for Cole Beasley. Hip-hop records, football training, and contract talks have taken over Beasley’s offseason, but he only has one thing in mind, focusing on football.
Mike Fisher of 247Sports was on The Shan and RJ Show on 105.3 The Fan this morning and reported that the Cowboys approached Cole Beasley in training camp about possibly signing a contract extension before the start of the season. According to Fisher, the talks didn’t get very far, before Beasley shut them down and wanted to put his full focus on training camp, and preparing for the upcoming season. There were reports during training camp that Beasley was not happy with his contract.
Blogging The Boys own RJ Ochoa hinted at the possible contract extension back in August: Is Cole Beasley in line for a contract extension with the Cowboys?
Beasley, now 29, is slated to make $4,250,000 million in 2018 as the Cowboys go-to wide receiver. Beasley’s contract will be up at the end of the year, and it sounds like the Cowboys are interested in keeping the slot receiver around. Since Dak Prescott has taken over as the Cowboys starting quarterback, Beasley has seen a rise in production on the field. Over the last two years, Beasley has combined for 111 receptions, 1,147 yards, and nine touchdowns.
It seems as if talks have stalled for now, but this is something to keep an eye on as the season progresses. The Cowboys obviously seem interested in retaining the slot receiver after the 2018 season.
