4 former Buffalo Bills that are still free agents that could be re-signed
Another player the Buffalo Bills released last offseason to create cap space and brought back was wide receiver Cole Beasley. The veteran slot receiver had a brief stop with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before deciding to retire after one regular season game.
However, Beasley elected to end his retirement when the Buffalo Bills wanted to bring him back with a one-year deal to their practice squad. Beasley provided some stability at the position after Isaiah McKenzie struggled earlier in the season.
While Cole Beasley is not the same receiver he was earlier in his time in Buffalo, he has proven to be a reliable outlet for Josh Allen, particularly on third downs. He had limited snaps during the regular season but in the playoffs had five receptions, 68 receiving yards and a touchdown in two games.
The Bills presently don’t have a clear answer to who will step in as the slot receiver but the likely candidates are Khalil Shakir or Trent Sherfield. If the team doesn’t add any wide receivers in the NFL Draft, a return of Cole Beasley could make sense to round out the position.
