Over the past week or so, Cole Beasley’s social media activity shows that he wants to be appreciated more in the Dallas Cowboys offense every Sunday. The free agent wide receiver had a solid 2018 season, but nothing like in 2016 when he brought in a career high 75 catches for 833 yards and 5 touchdowns.
On Twitter, the Cowboys WR seemingly threw shots at his former team and the way he is used on game days.
During Super Bowl media week in Atlanta — TMZ Sports caught up with hall of fame wide receiver Michael Irvin at Jay Glazer’s Merging Vets & Players Super Bowl Party, he was asked about the Beasley situation and that’s when he delivered a passionate speech about Beasley knowing his role on the team.
“Never should Beasley be in front of Amari Cooper. Never should he be in front of Michael Gallup,” Irvin tells us.
“And, what he has to do — lemme tell him, stop looking at Julian Edelman and expect to have the kind of year Julian Edelman has!!”
Irvin says he understands why there’s frustration from Beasley — he just tells us Cole has to know his role.
“The Patriots play the game inside out, Cole Beasley. The Cowboys play it outside in. The only way you catch passes like Edelman is if you go to New England. Right now, you’re in Dallas.”
