Last season, Cole Beasley’s return to the NFL lasted just two games. The 33-year-old decided to retire after 11 NFL seasons after signing with the Tampa Bay Bucs just two weeks before.
He would then come out of retirement again to play the final two games of the regular season and the playoffs with the Buffalo Bills. Now that the season is over, what will he be doing this time around?
He told reporters on Friday that he would like to play at least one more NFL season, preferably in Buffalo.
“At this point in my career, I’m still hungry and my body feels good,” he said, via Jay Skurski of the Buffalo News. “I still feel like I can do it and I can compete and play at a level that I’ve been playing at before this season. Obviously, I want to be somewhere that I can win, and I know that’s here, also. If that option is there, I would definitely do that.”

He also revealed that he’d been playing through a herniated disc in his neck in recent seasons, but that only appearing in six games in 2022 allowed the injury to heal.
“This is probably the healthiest I’ve ended a season in a long time,” he told Skurski. “It’s weird this season is ending, because I feel like I just got here. I feel like I was just starting to get back in my groove a little bit, so it’s frustrating, but I look forward to hopefully getting another opportunity.”
In two playoff games with the Bills this season, Beasley had five receptions for 68 yards and a touchdown.
At this stage of his career, the Bills wouldn’t have to break the bank to get Beasley back and he would likely take a discount just to play in Buffalo again.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
