The Buffalo Bills got a great veteran receiver in Cole Beasley and it turned out he turned down a top team to come to Buffalo.
The Buffalo Bills didn’t make that insane splash in free agency. At least not yet.
What the team did do was add a lot of talent on offense to essentially overhaul most of the group on that side of the ball. Luckily, the quarterback position didn’t have to be changed for once.
One of the main additions was Cole Beasley, who had a chance to talk with the media on Thursday. One point he made stood out to me the most.
This is a great point to make for those who said Buffalo was the worst free agent destination out there. Money talks, but so does a well-run organization that appears to be trending in the right direction with a solid plan in place.
Beasley didn’t get the attention he wanted on offense in Dallas and who knows what would have happened in New England with the way Bill Belichick plugs in so many players at receiver.
Beasley chose Josh Allen and the Bills and that is a great reason to welcome him to town with open arms.
We look at this and more in a Friday edition of The Morning Charge.
