Bucs add veteran receiver Cole Beasley to Tom Brady’s receiving Corps
Following the suspension of Mike Evans, Tampa Bay added another new weapon for Tom Brady and the Bucs.
On Tuesday morning, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers added veteran receiver Cole Beasley to their practice squad, reinforcing their depleted receiving corps.
The Bucs plan to move the receiver to the 53-man roster in the coming days to fill in Tom Brady’s void after losing Mike Evans last weekend.
On Sunday, the Pro Bowl wideout was suspended for one game due to his on-field skirmish with New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore. Additionally, with other players like free-agent acquisition Julio Jones having missed Sunday’s matchup due to injuries, acquiring Beasley only makes sense for the Bucs.
Beasley tied his career high with 82 receptions, and one touchdown when he was with the Buffalo Bills last season. He has proved productive over his 10-year career, having over 70 receptions in each of the last four seasons. Known to have reliable hands, Beasley has often caught quick passes in the slot. If he picks up Tampa’s offense quickly, the 33-year-old will become a much-needed addition to the Bucs who are choosing to go with veteran depth.
