Biography

Cole Beasley became the only rookie free agent of 2012 to make Dallas’ roster out of training camp after finishing the preseason tied for the team lead with 10 catches and second with 144 yards. Beasley saw time in the regular season as the club’s slot receiver and on special teams units, playing in 10 games as a rookie, and caught 15 passes for 128 yards. He saw more playing time in his second season as he became a valuable asset to the offense in clutch situations, starting the first three games of his career and finishing with 39 catches for 368 yards with two touchdowns, playing in 14 games. Beasley emerged as a clutch receiver in 2014 as 26 (fourth on the team) of his 37 catches went for first downs, including 11 (third) on third or fourth down. Prior to the start of 2015 free agency, Beasley signed a four-year contract to keep him in Dallas through 2018. With injuries in the receiving corps in 2015, Beasley saw extended time, and had then career-bests in receptions (52), receiving yards (536) and touchdowns (five) - tops on the team. The 2016 season was a breakout of sorts for the slot receiver as he led the team in receptions (75) and yards (833) while placing second with five touchdowns - all career-highs. Hailing from nearby Little Elm, Texas and prepping collegiately in Dallas at Southern Methodist, Beasley returns in 2017 entrenched as the team’s third receiver and as a viable offensive weapon.
