Cole Beasley has unretired. The often controversial WR returned to the Buffalo Bills and is doing so with a bizarre compliment from a teammate.
The 33-year-old announced his retirement from the NFL after a two-game run with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But the veteran receiver signed onto the Bills practice squad and likely will be activated for Saturday’s game against the Miami Dolphins.
Beasley played with the Bills for three seasons and was welcomed back by teammate Isaiah McKenzie.
“@Bease11 The floor is all yours brotha,” the 27-year-old tweeted.
A fan of the Minnesota Vikings then replied, “Stop supporting that anti vaxx loser.”
“He’s our anti vaxx loser,” McKenzie said.
Beasley was in the middle of a ton of controversy last season for his strong stance against the COVID-19 vaccine. He and McKenzie were fined over $14,000 for repeatedly not wearing masks in team facilities, which was required for non-vaccinated players.
The 11-year slot receiver wanted to become a “full-time dad and husband” following his short stint with the Bucs. While the Bills decided to release Beasley in March, it was not because of a lack of production.
During his time, he racked up 2,348 yards and 11 touchdowns on 231 catches, becoming one of Josh Allen’s favorite targets.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
