Why not go back to the well? The Bills added two wide receivers this past season, one of which they took from the Dallas Cowboys as they signed Cole Beasley to a four-year contract.
Beasley has come in and played very well for Buffalo, pulling down 59 receptions for 664 yards and six touchdowns. As good as he’s been, Beasley isn’t necessarily a No. 1 wide receiver but instead is a great option in the slot.
In need of someone to really take on the role of the top guy, the Bills could try and wait for the draft to see if someone is still around when they draft in the later portion of the first round. Or they could go after a big-name free agent like Amari Cooper.
Cooper was traded to Dallas last season as he and Beasley were teammates for half a year. After his star had cooled off in Oakland, Cooper turned things around in Big D and has become one of the best in the game again.
Entering Week 15 he already has 1,054 yards and a career-high eight touchdowns. It’s the best work of his career and he’s trying to parlay into a big contract.
If so, Cooper would be well worth the investment as he would give Allen a go-to receiver. Which would also make life easier on Beasley and John Brown who are the top wideout right now in Buffalo.
