COLE BEASLEY is ready to hang up his shoes.
Beasley, 33, has reportedly decided to retire from the NFL effective immediately after 11 seasons in the league.
The former second-team All-Pro receiver signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers just a fortnight ago, but after two games with Tom Brady and company, he’s decided to put the game behind him.
NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero tweeted that: “…his agents Joel and Justin Turner tell me and @MikeGarafolo. “He’s ready to be with his family after playing 11 seasons and it’s time to be a full-time dad and husband.”
Joel subsequently retweeted this message with caption: “We @yourNFLAgent couldn’t be prouder of Cole Beasley!!!!
“We are forever grateful to him for allowing us to be a part of his life and his family for over a decade!!
“Thanks also to @dallascowboys, @BuffaloBills and @Buccaneers!! Congratulations on a wonderful career!!!!”
Beasley signed for the Cowboys in 2012 as an undrafted free agent from SMU.
He then spent seven seasons at Dallas, where he played 103 games and rushed for 3,271 yards and 23 touchdowns before joining the Bills for the 2019 season.
Beasley called Buffalo home for a total of three seasons, where he enjoyed a career year in 2020, recording 927 of his bills with a total of 2,438 receiving yards.
A two-game spell at Tampa Bay followed with just four receptions for seventeen yards before Beasley ended his playing time.
